An amazing house became available in the summer, (2015) and was large enough to house (up to) 12 women. It was, (and still is) the wish of the owner that the house be used to support women in recovery. As of January 2016, we had 9 courageous women and many applicants. The house is located in the Woolen Mills area and is near a bus line and minutes from downtown. This wonderful, historic house provides an opportunity for women to support one another, while they heal and develop skills for self-reliance in the community. All the Furniture and supplies collected, the house is now a home.
A fund-raising campaign was launched to obtain immediate funding for the first year. Through generous private donors and grants Georgia's Healing House opened September 2015.
Ongoing donations are needed so we can continue to support this project. Additionally as our women find work they will contribute to supporting the house as part of their way to independence. Our first year budget is $143,480.
