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.

In addition to self-awareness, imagination and conscience, it is the fourth human endowment-independent will-that really makes effective self-management possible. It is the ability to make decisions and choices and to act in accordance with them. It is the ability to act rather than to be acted upon, to proactively carry out the program we have developed through the other three endowments. Empowerment comes from learning how to use this great endowment in the decisions we make every day.

Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats. Yet each struggle, each defeat, sharpens your skills and strengths, your courage and your endurance, your ability and your confidence and thus each obstacle is a comrade-in-arms forcing you to become better… or quit. Each rebuff is an opportunity to move forward; turn away from them, avoid them, and you throw away your future.

Transitional Housing Program provides subsidizedhousing and intensive case management to homeless families in Gwinnett County, Georgia. Families in the program work with an IMPACT! Group case manager to develop a unique self-sufficiency plan that addressesthe causes of that family’s homelessness. While each plan differs based on a family’s background and needs, common plan goals include increasing family income, reducing household debt, and increasing the use of smart financial practices such as budgeting and saving. To help each family advance towards its goals, the program also offers supportive services including basic home furnishing, medical screenings, and some child care assistance. The program can assist up to 22 families with dependent children at any one time and is open to families living in Gwinnett County. The majority of families assisted are headed by single mothers, and all heads of households must be employed while in the program.While this program receives partial funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the program relies on community donations and grants to implement its complete array of services.
