Sunrise over the Wheat Field

During the COVID-19 crisis, we are working harder than ever to provide safe shelter for families experiencing homelessness. To learn more and get involved, click here.

We’re so grateful for your continued support, Athens. Together, we will make it through this stronger than ever.

All regular volunteer opportunities have been suspended until November 30 during the COVID-19 crisis. Thank you for your understanding! Please click here for current volunteer needs to support families during this crisis.

Volunteers from the Athens community provide an evening meal for AAHS families 365 days per year. Whether you’re seeking a team building activity for your company, a mission activity for your faith community, or just the chance to give back – providing a meal is a meaningful way to respond to homelessness. Currently your donation will provide for 6 moms and 12 children and there is an orange allergy.

We want all our students to be successful with their educational goals! Join us weekday evenings (M-Th) from 6:00-8:00 pm to assist kids with their homework and engage in fun activities! We are working hard to make the school nights more structured and your volunteer involvement is valuable! For consistency for kids, please try to sign up for 6 slots throughout the semester. Also, please sign up for each individual session you plan to attend. Click here for more details and for open dates!

Join us Saturday mornings from 10am-12pm to spend time with kiddos! This gives kids a chance to get outside and play while parents can get much needed rest. Feel free to utilize the many toys, board games, or outdoor activities to engage kids in fun, teamwork oriented play. If you’re interested in this opportunity, sign up by clicking here. Thanks for understanding that we ask for only 4 volunteers for each Saturday. *Please sign up for each individual session you plan to attend.

Are you the outside lover? Have a green thumb or just love playing in the dirt? We have the perfect opportunity for you! We are looking for volunteers to help with our garden and property upkeep and maintenance. Every other Saturday we have slots available for volunteer assistance to help keep the shelter beautiful and would love to have you join us! Click here to sign up! *Please note, we do have some garden tools on site, but do not have a functioning lawn mower or weed eater.

Maintenance on an old building can be costly. If your group or business is interested in donating plumbing, construction and repair, lawn maintenance, or any other facility-related service, contact us at oamato@helpathenshomeless.org or call 706-354-0423.

Click here to access the AAHS Wish List. You’ll find a list of commonly needed items of AAHS clients and staff. Use the list to run a Supply Drive with your neighborhood association, faith community, fraternity & sorority, or office. Partner with a group to meet a big need of the shelter and know your donation goes a long way to help families in our community!
