Services: IOH was founded in 1992 to combat the growing problem of family homelessness. A group of churches in the North Atlanta area banded together to offer long term solutions to the problem. They have a broad base of support that includes individuals, churches, community groups, state, county, foundation, and corporate giving. They believe in keeping families together while they work on the issues that made them homeless. They also concentrate on the children, believing that they too must be served to stop the cycle of poverty and homelessness. They have 10 on-site furnished apartments and 3 off-site apartments for families in their program. They provide a comprehensive after school and summer day camp program for the children in their program as well as for other homeless children in the community. They have a strong volunteer program that augments the services that they are able to provide to their families. They have a vocational assessment program to help each adult evaluate their employment prospects and future. They provide a thorough course on basic living skills which includes budgeting and finance, parenting, home maintenance, nutrition, and employment skills. In the last 13 years they have served over 170 families and have a success rate of between 60-70%. Families typically triple their income while at IOH.

Genesis enables homeless families to remain together and creates a participatory community in which parents have the opportunity to live with their children in privacy and with dignity. In empowering families to achieve greater self-sufficiency, Genesis Shelter recognizes individual family needs and provides the resources to meet those needs.

While at Genesis, each family receives residential services that are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and include three nutritious meals, clothing, on-site child care, and individual, couples, and family counseling services.
