Genesis Shelter, 2004

This project involved renovations to a two-story 25,000 square foot existing warehouse. The facility accommodates up to 18 families in private living areas and includes a child development center, a dining hall, administrative offices and expansion space for up to six additional families. The renovated facility included 18 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, and 6 classrooms. Genesis - A New Life is Atlanta's first and only emergency transitional facility exclusively for newborn babies and their families. Genesis provides a comprehensive counseling and support program to help these families get back on their feet and transition back into some sort of permanent housing.

In July 2014, Genesis merged with Our House, another Atlanta nonprofit providing services to children and families.
