ATLANTA DAY SHELTER FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN INC
March 10, 2011

Spending time at the Atlanta Day Shelter was an amazing experience and true eye-opener. The shelter and staff are absolutely wonderful. Serving a hot breakfast to dozens of very grateful women and children was time well spent. The experience gives one a lot of perspective, but it also made me appreciate just how selfless and kind the staff is, devoting their lives day in and day out. The Atlanta Day Shelter clearly does everything they can, but it is very easy to see that there will probably never be enough help, money, food, etc. to fight such an overwhelming cause. The day I was there we had hot coffee and we brewed numerous pots as it seemed to be a big hit with the women. I quickly learned they do not have coffee most days, so it was a bit of a treat that day. I would highly recommend getting involved to do whatever you can to help a very worthy organization.

The Great!
