Mission and Work


The Atlanta children's shelter provides loving, quality child development and support services for homeless families striving to become self-sufficient.

Program 1

$677k annual program spend • Atlanta children's shelter (acs) is a Georgia licensed child care center through the department of early care and learning and is accredited by the national association for the education of young children. We serviced a total of 62 homeless children throughout the year of 2017. Our teaching staff and local professional partners provide the best of care to the students by maximizing performance, preparation, and potential. Quarterly sampling of brigance screenings show that more than 96% are exceeding developmental milestones in literacy, math and social-emotional development. Operating approximately 270 calendar days, more than 21,000 meals, breakfast, lunch, and snacks were served to homeless children in our care thanks to funding from the herbalife foundation, mundito, and the united way.

Program 2

$272k annual program spend • The acs social services team served 47 families providing family counseling, advocacy, crisis intervention, referrals, and emergency financial assistance for rent, utilities, and medical needs. 64% or 30 families transitioned from homelessness to permanent housing. 42% or 20 parents were newly employed. 44% or 21 parents were participating in ged programs, technical training, or college courses.
