Stay Informed & Discover Ways  You Can Help…

Our Mission is to 1) provide a stable, loving, home for young mothers and their children under adult supervision and  2) to provide young mothers with the educational opportunities and the life training skills that they will need to become independent, self-supporting women.

“…all of the life skills that I needed in order to be successful and independent.”

I was 17 years old and 8 months pregnant.  Having no family or friends to turn to, I found HOD.   During my time in Second Chance I graduated from high school with the help of my case manager in May 2010.

They provided me with food, shelter, transportation, and access to education. House of Dawn cared about me as a person, not just a mother. I learned how to maintain positive relationships, how to bond with my daughter Akayla and all of the life skills that I needed in order to be successful and independent.

” …I completed things that once seemed so far out my reach; my G.E.D and enrolled in college.”

I was young, pregnant, depressed and homeless. I had no one to help me and get me on the right path. My mother had been gone for years, and I knew little about parenting.  But when I entered the House Of Dawn, I was given a fresh start. Not only did the House of Dawn welcome me in, they prepared me for life.

While in the House Of Dawn I completed things that once seemed so far out my reach. I completed my G.E.D and enrolled in college. I am now a full-time student at Georgia Perimeter College.

Latest Updates

Capital Campaign Update Your support has brought in a total of $136,987 towards us owning our Transitional Home Program Facility.

We’re on a mission to own our Transitional Home Program Facility free and clear.   This allows us to focus our resources on helping young families succeed versus paying interest.   We still have $282,013.24 to go, but with your support of any amount, we’ll reach that goal even sooner.   All funds from last and this year’s charity event go towards the capital campaign to pay off the THP facility.
