    • Fuqua Hall

    We protect the confidentiality of our clients and will not give out information without written consent. This means, the counselor will not be able to tell you for certain. If the resident is currently living at our facility, his/her counselor will speak with him/her regarding your phone call. If the resident gives us permission, their Counselor will be able to speak with you about the client’s progress in the program and possibly arrange for visitation or a telephone conversation.

  • Do you provide financial assistance for individuals facing economic hardship?

    Atlanta Mission does not provide economic assistance for bill payment, housing vouchers, food or clothing stipends, etc. Atlanta Mission offers food, clothing and shelter free of charge to those living in our facilities seeking shelter, or enrolled in our shelter and discipleship programs. Atlanta Mission also offers lower cost transitional housing at Fuqua Hall for those eligible. For information about our transitional housing program, please email [email protected].

  • What programs do you provide?

    Atlanta Mission offers overnight shelter to men, women and mothers with children at our various facilities who are suffering from either temporary or long-term distress. We encourage those whose situation requires longer term or more advanced care to enter into our temporary shelter program and commit to living at our facility for 14 days. During that time, Atlanta Mission offers case management where we sit down with the client and, together, work out a plan that can best solve their problems, ultimately ending their homelessness. Oftentimes, we determine that the client’s needs may be best served through one of our programs.

    Atlanta Mission offers a job attainment program (designed to aid our residents in becoming employed) as a pre-transitional housing program.

  • Do you provide care for intact families?

    Atlanta Mission does not currently offer services for intact family housing at our centers, though we are considering doing so. However, we do have and their children and shelters for men. Please contact the Salvation Army for more information on intact family housing. For a list of locations nearest you, please go to: www.SalvationArmyUSA.org
