How The Program Works D.I.Y. (DO IT YOURSELF)
Our goal is to assemble as much information in one place to empower you to gain housing as soon as possible. God bless you and know we have prayed for you even even before you visited out site :)
If you need a home you may apply for our coaching assistance. You can either do it yourself "DIY"or become a member of our housing organization and get a coach to help you with the steps to gain additional support and housing.

Emergency Housing Program
SHE DID IT LIKE THIS...
Testimonies of Member Services...
Emergency shelter is a system of housing (usually in a shelter) to aid when a person has no safe place to sleep. Everyday people call our office for quick placement housing or emergency shelter. If you or your family needs emergency shelter, please call our support line at 470-851-5472 for a consultation. Coaches are available Tuesday and Thursday 9:30am-3pm
Other Supportive Programs (MEMBERS)
We understand some people will never trust a shelter because the shelters may not seem safe, so we have attempted to accommodate families experiencing this dilemma. We offer many services to bring dignity and assistance to struggling families:
Mailing address, telephone usage, hygiene kits, soap, a wash cloth, nail file, nail clippers, deodorant, shampoo, cotton swabs, a comb, tooth brush and tooth paste, dental floss and more. A HOT shower can save the day! A hot meal, emergency groceries, clothing, shoes, diapers, blankets and the like. Employment services including resume, phone, fax, copy, internet access, email, printing and scanning. Assistance with birthdays, Christmas, Easter and more. Assistance with applying for food stamps, assistance with applying for college and financial aid FAFSA.
Why Are We Different?
We are a Christian Volunteer Group. Jars of Clay chooses not to receive federal funds, so we refer clients to organizations that accepted those funds to help you! Let's give them an opportunity to use those "homeless funds" to go to "homeless families," to help end homelessness.
