Our mission of “Reconciling the Disconnected” is far more reaching than simply providing a temporary shelter from the cold or rain.
The Judy House believes that healthy relationships and positive leadership are critical guides for those entangled amidst the anxiety and distractions of navigating a crisis. We are not only a beacon of hope, in a sense we also are a lifeboat that exists for those who are lost in a raging storm.
Our obligation to help build a healthier community comes through a request help outreach, and a transitional/reentry type housing program.
- Request help outreach makes available the right information when you call or visit the website. It’s amazing how intentional conversation and provisional help can get men and women connected to answers, solutions, and a path to sustainability. More than just phone help, our outreach of temporary services can connect people to hope and support. Just like with updated knowledge and consistently updating web information, partnerships with other agencies, and learning about new services available, all this gives people an anchor in times of adversity.
- Transitional Housing services are for those who’ve been released from corrective programs and those chronically homeless in the Greater Gwinnett area. It’s a family-setting safe house environment with relational support, tools, and hope to establish people through the transitional process to gain a foothold as they reintegrate back into the community. Deeply structured daily accountability groups with regards to communication performance and reaching personal expectations of one’s hopes and dreams.
