Putting an End to Homelessness

The Atlanta Mission provides emergency shelter, assistance with employment, and transitional housing to residents facing homelessness in Atlanta, GA through their program-based ministry.

The Atlanta Mission was established in 1938 as a Soup Kitchen to feed homeless men during The Great Depression.  Through the years, The Atlanta Mission has transitioned into an organization that provides not only for men but women and children as well.  With over four locations, The Atlanta Mission provides assistance to more than 950 individuals daily. homeless man with puppy and child


The philosophy of The Atlanta Mission is that homelessness comes in many forms and affects different people and at different times within their lives.  It is the desire of The Atlanta Mission to not only assist in taking people off the streets but also to give them a program that is built around religion to give them a firm foundation to further their lives.  The programs offered at The Atlanta Mission are multi-pronged and multi-layered to meet the needs of all individuals at different stages within their current situation.  Some of the programs offered at The Atlanta Mission are an overnight shelter, temporary shelter, personal development program, job attainment resources and transitional housing.

The requirements for admission into The Atlanta Mission are that individuals must be 18 or accompanied by a legal guardian (male children must be eleven years of age or younger). Those admitted also must fully participate in all program activities, be fully detoxified with at least 72 hours since their last use of alcohol or drugs, and be mentally and physically able to exercise proper personal hygiene and self-care. These are just a few of the requirements, for additional information please call (404) 588-4000 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

In addition to offering assistance with homelessness, The Atlanta Mission provides clothing vouchers for the homeless and low-income individuals and families through their Atlanta Mission’s Thrift Store & More.  The Atlanta Mission’s Thrift Store & More is also a ministry center where prayer is offered daily. 

The Atlanta Mission also offers long-term internships, trainee programs, and practicum volunteer experiences.  There is a six (6) month commitment expected to be considered for each of these programs. The Atlanta Mission is a non-profit organization and welcomes donations.  If you would like to donate please call (404) 367-2263 or mail your donation to PO Box 1807, Atlanta, GA 30301-9904.
