Our mission is to break the chains of homelessness by providing quality early childhood education and comprehensive support services for families who are experiencing homelessness.
Guided by the standards set forth by our accrediting agency NAEYC and by Head Start, Our House classroom practices and policies are designed to foster the overall development of each child and to prepare them for academic success in Kindergarten and beyond.
By providing intensive case management, practical support, and counseling, Our House Family Advocacy team help families move from crisis to stability.
Through systematic goal setting and action planning, monthly life-skills workshops and employment readiness opportunities, Our House empowers families to make meaningful improvements and lasting changes to their lives.
On any given day, there are over 800 homeless children under the age of 6 in Atlanta with only two agencies serving them with nationally-accredited childcare programs. Family homelessness can not only strain a community’s resources but can also deny children the experiences they need for healthy development and for a solid academic future.
Since 1987, Our House has delivered programs and services with measurable success. As a NAEYC accredited childcare center with funding partnerships with the United Way, Head Start, and many prominent foundations such as The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, Our House has consistently produced positive results in helping homeless families make lasting improvements to their lives.
Your support can help to end cycles of homelessness for children and families.
