  • House of Dawn acts as family for young mothers during holidays

    hod acts RIVERDALE — Felicia knows how it feels to have nobody during the holidays.

    “I have spent holidays homeless,” she said. “Being homeless in any situation is hard. But being homeless during the holidays can be tragic.”

    Felicia said the family she found in House of Dawn last year saved her holidays — and her life.

    Dawn Murray founded House of Dawn in 2000 to shelter teenage mothers and to transition them and their children into stable lives. The organization can take in about 13 young mothers at a time from Clayton, Henry and Fayette counties

  • our-history-title
    The House of Dawn, Inc was founded in 2000 by Dawn Leneice Murray, who was at the time a Clayton County Parenting Educator Instructor and Home Visitor. Mrs. Murray worked with pregnant and parenting teen mothers in need of a safe haven for themselves as well as their children. Mrs. Murray saw what a need there was for a Second Chance Home in the Clayton County Community and stepped up to the plate to make her dream a reality.

    Currently we are speaking to more and more young ladies to empower them to take hold of their future, their choices, and in doing so to reduce the rate of teen pregnancies.  Former HOD graduates join our staff to meet with young women to encourage, teach, and relate to their challenges.
