It is amazing to see a dream come to fruition. Margaret shared with me 19 years ago about wanting to help homeless women. After raising her family, and surrounding herself with like-minded people, Genesis Joy House is no longer a dream deferred. This house is a long over due and welcome edition to Middle Georgia and surrounding areas. Many lives will be forever changed by the services that will be offered to women. Volunteers will be blessed by donating time, talent and money to this wonderful nonprofit organization.

As a volunteer Board Secretary I have learned so much about Genesis Joy House. Genesis is going to be a great blessing for so many women veterans in need. I know how mentally frustrating it can be to not be sure where you will rest your head at night and having to push restart on your life but I was blessed with a wonderful woman the founder who has a heart for people in need and gave me and my husband a chance to rebuild our lives again. I love what Genesis is doing which is tackling the root of a very big problem in our country and that is homelessness.

Genesis Joy House will make history by being the first homeless female transitional home in Middle Georgia for Veterans. I have had the pleasure of working with the founder/Executive Director, Mrs. Margaret Flowers since Genesis's inception in 2010. Mrs. Flowers is just as passionate about assisting homeless individuals as I am.

I've assisted homeless individuals over 30 years in my career and Genesis Joy House Homeless Shelter, Inc. was a perfect fit for me as I began to look for Volunteer Work to give back to my Community.

If you would like to be a part of the SOLUTION to HOMELESSNESS in MIDDLE GA, please come join us as we make history. Get involved! Our female veterans have sacrificed so much for us, the least we could do it give back to them.

Genesisjoyhouse.com is our website. We have work for everyone. If you are unable to do physical work, please consider giving a donation or volunteering in other areas. Your monetary donation will be used towards our renovation project and it is tax dutiable.

Thank you,
Rosalyn D. Davis

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 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.
