Let's Learn About Judy House
While we can’t obviously meet every need, particularly for housing. However it is staggering that 60% of those who leave jail with no address in hand will be re-arrested in the first year. Call us for more information (678) 752-8731
Frequently asked questions
No. Unfortunately we’re not a facility. We’ll help shelter someone from the elements if space is available. There are no Men’s facility-type shelters in Gwinnett, but call us and see if we can help with available information on other options around.
Some of the basic requirements are to have a valid GA. ID, be 30 days clean, capable of gainful employment, have a plan of action, be willing to participate in daily accountability groups and weekly Church attendance. Call and find out more specific info and perhaps other type housing to connect with. We do require 2 in-person interviews to be conducted prior to entrance.
Actually, neither one. Our Christ-centered resident transition program is more transformational. This requires you being consistent with growth and achieving goals toward sustainability. More of a family related setting. There’s not a bunch of counselors, so you’ll have to know what it takes to make your transition happen. Strictly a 2nd step program – but you will find others here, who offer you needed support and resources.
Relatedness brings about fulness. That means as we learn about each other, we can invest and improve your outlook and expectations. That’s a little bit better approach – as you can feel more like a family member. There’s also job search support, money management, and effective decision making help. These are things that help with reintegration. But engaging in the meal sharing and daily devotions is where accountability and transparency help most.
After a 2 part interview, you may be eligible or accepted. There’s a $170 weekly program fee due at the beginning of each week. $320 is required for the initial Application fee (not a security deposit) due at Intake, which also covers the 1st week. Remember, this is a 12 month long max residential program.
We understand. At times we may have an indigent bed available. However you must first use our request page or call us (678) 752-8731 and check.
Certainly. We recieve many requests. We just need to know your specific goals and objectives, in order to assist. Let us help you fit into a structured or specialized plan that’s best for you.
You must be able to call first and see if any current openings, based on type of restrictions, and if available – or other programs that can house you or family member.
Yes, we like to receive donations, but not able to take items such as mattresses and furniture. We make hot, fresh meals daily here and are always in need of perishable and non-perishable items that help us to provide meals for those who are without. Remember, there are many on the streets who can use help too, when considering donations. So items like baggies, single-use disposable items are quite needed.
If you prefer, tax deductible donations can be done by just texting the word “transition” to 53555 on your mobile devce.
One of the events available on our website is upon request, but you could call or email anytime during office hours to find out how else one could serve, or be able to apply for community service.
