They are committed to change the lives of their female adolescents who are living in poverty and or who have limited access to resources and are at high risk for poor outcomes by offering the opportunity to have a safe environment, and an early-career development that will provide support to establish a more promising future and career through education, training, and professional development.


Using the resources of volunteers, counselors, community activities, and active involvement they will strive to give these adolescent females the tools necessary to become more dependent while also obtaining self-reliance.

IOH was founded in 1992 to combat the growing problem of family homelessness. A group of churches in the North Atlanta area banded together to offer long term solutions to the problem. They have a broad base of support that includes individuals, churches, community groups, state, county, foundation, and corporate giving. They believe in keeping families together while they work on the issues that made them homeless. They also concentrate on the children, believing that they too must be served to stop the cycle of poverty and homelessness.

They have 10 on-site furnished apartments and 3 off-site apartments for families in their program. They provide a comprehensive after school and summer day camp program for the children in their program as well as for other homeless children in the community. They have a strong volunteer program that augments the services that they are able to provide to their families. They have a vocational assessment program to help each adult evaluate their employment prospects and future. They provide a thorough course on basic living skills which includes budgeting and finance, parenting, home maintenance, nutrition, and employment skills. In the last 13 years they have served over 170 families and have a success rate of between 60-70%. Families typically triple their income while at IOH.

The mission of Genesis is to provide an environment that allows homeless newborns to grow and develop in a nurturing and healthy surrounding. Genesis enables homeless families to remain together and creates a participatory community in which parents have the opportunity to live with their children in privacy and with dignity. In empowering families to achieve greater self-sufficiency, Genesis Shelter recognizes individual family needs and provides the resources to meet those needs.

Soon after arriving at Genesis, each family creates an action plan to use as a roadmap to reach their goal of independence. While at Genesis, each family receives residential services that are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and include three nutritious meals, clothing, on-site child care, and individual, couples, and family counseling services. Each family lives in a secure, homelike environment dedicated to the care of the newborn and their families. In return, the program expects each resident to: (1) set goals that will help him or her achieve greater self-sufficiency; (2) attend educational workshops and programs; and (3) Demonstrate a commitment to achieving their goals.
