Review for ATLANTA DAY SHELTER FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN INC, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I began volunteering at the Atlanta Day Shelter when it was housed at First Methodist Church in downtown Atlanta and I worked downtown. On cold mornings, I would go by and open up the Shelter so the women and their children could come in out of the cold since the night shelters had put them out on the street. Offering a warm, safe place for these homeless women and their children was so rewarding and has been for all these 25+ years of the Shelter's existence. Now the Shelter is so much more than just a warm (or cool in the summer), safe place. We now provide training and help the women find employment, as well as take care of their health needs and feed them good, nutritious meals. The Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Childdren is a wonderful place to volunteer and to serve.

Role:  Board Member & As a board member I serve as Treasurer.
