Review for Atlanta Day Shelter For Women and Children Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

One of my favorite parts of volunteering at the Atlanta day shelter is spending time with the children. A small urban garden has been started in the back of the shelter which has been a great way to expose women and children to vegetables and healthful eating.

This shelter provides so many important and vital resources for their population and are a crucial stepping stone for women to move from the streets, shelters and unemployment to getting back on their feet. All of the time that I have spent there has been hugely rewarding and I have learned so much from the women and staff about resilience and hope.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

creating a green space at the shelter for gardening

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make the garden bigger :)

Role:  Volunteer & Helped start the urban garden at the shelter as well as volunteered in the clinic on sight.
