  • 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.
