Homeless Women Veterans
Our Flagship Commitment is to: Genesis Joy House, Georgia’s First Comprehensive Transitional Housing Program for Women Veterans.
Women veterans are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population in the United States. One out every 10 homeless veterans, under the age of 45, is now a woman. The risk of women veterans becoming homeless is 4X greater than a male veteran. A hard, heartbreaking fact: Homeless female veterans with little or no financial security for childcare can end up losing their children to protective services.
The goal of Genesis Joy House Homeless Shelter, Inc (Genesis) is to end chronic homelessness among female veterans in our communities. Achieving this goal is complex and requires a holistic approach that address the “total veteran” and her needs. Strategic organizational programming will include leveraging existing resources with committed private and public organizations throughout the Georgia sector and beyond.
