Supportive, Encouraging, and Dedicated are just a few words used to describe the founder of Genesis Joy House Homeless Shelter and the nature for which she serves those whom God has placed in her path. Even before the organization's inception, I have had the opportunity to witness firsthand her commitment to the community. While attending the same church and participating in outreach events, she would always be ready and willing to lend a helping hand on any given occasion. Although we no longer live in the same community, our family had an opportunity to show our support to Genesis Joy homeless shelter by wearing our Genesis Joy (Jesus-Other’s-Yourself) T-shirts at a community service event in the Washington D.C area. Genesis Joy House’s impact is extended well beyond the Georgia area and is a wonderful program that is committed to helping and serving others.

Genesis Joy House Homeless Shelter, Inc. is a wonderful organization to be a part of. I have been a part of this organization since it's inception. The members of this organization are very passionate about people in general. We are mission minded professionals who work hard everyday to make a difference through serving others. We strive each and every day to be voices in our Community and in the Middle Georgia Area for those who are homeless. We are getting very close to opening our Transitional Housing Facility for homeless female veterans in the Middle Georgia Area. We are a part of the SOLUTION to end homelessness in the Middle GA Area. We thank all of those who have helped along the way.

About two years ago, I had the opportunity to meet Ms. Margaret Flowers, CEO of Genesis JOY House. Margaret attended a Coalition meeting in Macon, Georgia and joined the housing Committee which I too was a part of. After the meeting ended, Margaret invited me to attend an informational meeting at her home. She indicated she was in the process of opening a Shelter for the homeless. I immediately replied by saying, " I am very interested". Assisting people of all walks of life is one of my gifts that I was indeed blessed with. I attended the interest meeting at Margaret's home and we have been working together every since. One of the things that makes Genesis so very different from many other organizations is that Genesis cares about the well being of people we serve and we are truly here to assist them. We give hope to those who have none and provide them with the tools so that they too have live productive lives so that they do not have to turn to a life of crime.

Genesis is an excellent organization that is determined and focused on helping our homeless female veterans. These women are a group of no nonsense women who love the Lord. I've seen them in action. With that said, the volunteer review is extremely unfair. In the six year's they've been in existence this is the first negative review that I've seen. Many times you have to let volunteers go because of their hidden motives and not having the heart of our veterans in the forefront of their mind. Thank you.

I offer my photography services to Genesis Joy House to chronicle all the work and fun the volunteers have in refurbishing several buildings to house female veterans. What has been accomplished so far with the help of local businesses donating essentials to help complete the effort is truly amazing. Many church groups have donated their time as well to offer the hands on needed to get the hard job done. They are busy tearing down walls and putting new ones up, painting, plumbing, whatever the next assignment is they are ready to do it. Margaret Flowers who leads the teams is always upbeat, happy and smiling. She has a very successful team of ladies surrounding her with help and leadership to complete this task.
