Dining Out for Jesse's House

August 19. All Day.

Join us on August 19, 2013

Each day adolescent women from across the greater Atlanta-area are brought together at Jesse’s House to find something they are missing - understanding and support through a loving environment. Working with a number of young ladies, presenting a variety of different backgrounds, Jesse’s House is a non-profit organization that provides emergency and long-term care to youth who have suffered abuse or delinquency that grew out of the recognized need by the Cumming / Forsyth Council on Youth and Concerned Citizens for an emergency children’s shelter in the North Georgia area.

About Jesse's House

Since its inception in 1998, Jesse’s House has taken in more than 555 young women from 21 counties across the greater Atlanta area including: Banks, Barrow, Catoosa, Cherokee, Clarke, Dawson, DeKalb, Douglas, Elbert, Fannin, Floyd, Forsyth, Gwinnett, Hall, Lumpkin, Meriwether, Stephens, Union, Walker, White, and Whitfield. The shelter has three main goals they strive for on a daily basis: to serve high risk girls between the ages of seven and seventeen who are referred from the Department of Family and Children’s Services or Department of Juvenile Justice; to reunify the residents with their families whenever possible; and to provide a safe house until permanent placement is found.

While our primary goal is to provide emergency care, our larger goals include providing healing from the wounds of abuse and increasing each girl’s opportunities for future success. The capacity to offer a rich and extended set of resources distinguishes Jesse’s House among emergency shelters of its type, allowing it to become a truly valuable organization for the greater Atlanta area.
