Making a Difference in a Child's Life

Every morning 13,000 people in our city wake up with no place to call home. 
Approximately 2,500 of them are children.

Founded in 1986 by the Junior League of Atlanta and located in the North Avenue Presbyterian Church, the Atlanta Children's Shelter provides free, quality day care, emotional support, an educational curriculum for homeless children, and focused social services for their families. Dedicated to helping families overcome the issues that contribute to homelessness, including domestic violence and job loss, the Atlanta Children's Shelter focuses on the long term self sufficiency of the family – which sets us apart from other Atlanta homeless shelters. Since 1986, the Atlanta Children’s Shelter has cared for almost 8,000 children and provided services for more than 5,000 families.


To provide loving, quality child development and support services for homeless families striving to become self-sufficient.


To be the leading and most valued organization in Metro Atlanta which positively impacts the lives of homeless children and their families.


We address the needs of the entire family and provide all services free of charge in return for the family’s commitment to self-sufficiency as well as their commitment of time and energy.
