A Place of Safety & Growth

While our primary goal is to provide emergency care until reunification or permanency can be obtained, our larger goals include beginning the healing process from the wounds of abuse and increasing each girl’s opportunities for future success. The capacity to coordinate and offer a rich and extended set of resources distinguishes Jesse’s House among youth shelters of its type, allowing it to become a truly valuable organization for the greater Atlanta area.
