During the COVID-19 crisis, our organization and services remain OPEN. We are working harder than ever to provide safe shelter for families experiencing homelessness. Between our emergency shelter program, our educational shelter program and our rehousing program, we are currently sheltering or housing 49 children and their families.
We’re so grateful for your continued support, Athens. Together, we will make it through this stronger than ever.
