House of Dawn Transitional Housing Program, 2018

On July 20, 2018, HomeAid Atlanta and House of Dawn supporters gathered in Jonesboro to break ground on a renovation project to help build new lives for young and expectant mothers experiencing homelessness. Doug Cotter, in partnership with Silverstone Communities, will serve as HomeAid Atlanta’s volunteer Builder Captain for renovations at HOD’s Transitional Housing Program facilities, doubling the program’s capacity from eight mothers and babies to 16. The Transitional Housing program serves young mothers ages 18-24 and their children, who need supportive housing assistance for up to two years. The renovation of the Transitional Housing Program’s two duplexes will add a new bathroom to four units, doubling the number of mothers and their children who will call House of Dawn home as they work toward the goal of self-sufficiency.
