but there's a way out of this cycle. In fact, at Georgia CALLS, we've helped reunite 40 children with their parents this past year.
One of the most effective ways to create positive change in a community is to restore a broken or homeless family. It's our mission to walk with our homeless neighbors and teach them how to permanently change their mindsets and overcome poverty.
...one life at a time. While we provide immediate support for our homeless neighbors, our ultimate goal is to build better communities. Through counseling, mentoring, skill-building and steady work, our program works.
Our pathway to rebuilding families is grounded on evidence-based practices that are proven to work.
In fact, in our first year of operation, we helped reunite over 40 kids with their parents through our CHANCE program.
Georgia CALLS is a 501c3 faith-based organization with a heartfelt calling to help rebuild and reestablish families experiencing the hardship of homelessness, in all its forms. We are a place where participants of the program can get a full-time job, needs assessment, counseling, childcare, life-skills education and more. Our team consists of pastors, educators, technology leaders, social workers and more. Find out more about Georgia CALLS

"I like the fact that Georgia CALLS is a real place for people with a difficult history to meet real people that are in a similar situation and trying to get their lives together. At this place, you meet people that don't judge you. It's like the undocumented aliens living under the shadows, we can come out of the shadows and not feel like you are living in the shadows. A lot of credit goes to the founders/facilitators for establishing this very unique place. A place to go for people with a rough background seeking redemption." Tayo Adeyemi, Participant
“Georgia CALLS is now going to be a model not only for (other) pilot sites but for other non-profits in the community and for non-profits across the state and the nation.” Renée Snead, Deputy Director, Governor’s Office of Transition, Support and Reentry
"I have learned in the time that I have come to my new family that first and foremost my feelings are normal and in fact healthy. It means that I care about myself, my future, and those that I love and love me. I learned that it is OK to feel again and to process those feelings into purposeful action. I want to win again and I'm learning how." Chris Samuels, Participant
"When I first came to Georgia Calls I was a wreck. I had serious anger and trust issues, I would not allow anyone to get close to me, and went against almost everything I was faced with. Fast forward 8 months later, it's absolutely amazing the changes I've made. I can trust the people around me, I trust that my best interests are in the hearts and minds of the people around me. I know that I have a family here, even if I don't have one anywhere else." Johnnie Neal, Participant
From 2012 to 2013, the number of children experiencing homelessness annually in the U.S increased by 8% nationally4
