Genesis has a unique program design unduplicated in the state of Georgia: to serve homeless newborns and their families with a comprehensive range of services to facilitate their move from homelessness to poverty. They do a lot with very little money, including six months of shelter, food, provision of all baby supplies and personal care items, free licensed child care for the families. They do a great job utilizing volunteers to support their services.

What is unique about this organization?

Families are served based upon the youngest and most vulnerable member of the family, the newborn baby, not the characteristics of the adults. Genesis serves single Moms with a baby and other siblings, couples - and does not require the couple to be married, and even will accept single Dads if they have custody of the baby!

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I worked with the staff in training and capacity building.
