Genesis JOY House Homeless Shelter, Inc. is making history as the first transitional housing facility in Houston County, Georgia for homeless female veterans.
Genesis JOY House (JOY House) is pioneering a solution to help our female veterans overcome the challenges associated with homelessness and incarceration. By providing transitional housing, education, employment resources, spiritual support and mental health services, JOY House is poised to reverse the rising trend of homelessness among female veterans.
A Coordinated System of Care
The Genesis JOY House program model relies on participation from our communities and families to holistically benefit our female veterans. Community agencies and faith-based programs linked with the Genesis JOY House complex will be able to meet the special needs of female veterans and offer supportive services to assist women more effectively while moving them toward long-term self-sufficiency. When these programs work together in a coordinated manner, the needs of veteran women are met while the opportunities for successful transition are highly improved.
Grow With Us Building Campaign
In 2015, a generous donation by Livingston Properties of Warner Robins, Georgia provided Genesis JOY House with a 5-unit studio apartment complex, a duplex house and a two story unit for use as the primary physical site for the transitional shelter. We've been hard at work, transforming the property into a comfortable home for our female veterans but we need your help to see the vision through.
Our ability to serve as agents of hope is made possible through the dedication and unparalleled experience of our staff.
They are the backbone of what we do and we'd like you to meet a few of them here. These are everyday people performing exceptional acts of generosity and laying the framework of a project destined to impact homelessness in America.
We believe that time is one of the most valuable gifts that we have to give.
We appreciate your interest in helping us provide services to homeless female veterans. At this time, we are currently building our volunteer program. In order to accomplish this much needed aspect of our vision, we need people like you.
