Dear Friend and Supporter,

Please HELP Our Shelter


JC Freedom House shelter for women in crisis in Douglas County needs your help. Our mission is to bring health and healing to nations, families, and individuals. Our major program is our shelter for women in crisis. Many of our women have been abused, lost their jobs, or are experiencing hardship.


Why do we need your help? We are securing our shelter building and need financial support to save this vital resource for Atlanta Metro and beyond. The whole community is rallying to help us save our shelter house. We are thankful and blessed for the many businesses and community leaders as well as individuals who have already donated funds to help JC Freedom House, but we still need a lot more.


Will you help us? A shelter has remained on the existing site for nearly 10 years and has been managed by volunteers exclusively. The founder of the current shelter, Marigold Edwards was once a woman in crisis resident at the shelter. So many women have been saved and able to transform their lives completely with the help of our programs. Over the past 2.5 years, our statistical data revealed:


  • Over a dozen women were housed and four remained in the shelter for a 12-month period.

  • 5 children received outreach support.

  • Over 4,000 bed-nights were provided.

  • 80% of our women transitioned to permanent or semi-permanent housing.

  • 100% of our women with children regained parental rights to their children.

  • 100% of women that came to the shelter without employment, obtained jobs.

  • Hundreds of pounds of food and clothing were provided.

  • 100% of our outreach clients were provided with practical support and assistance.

  • Thousands of hours were provided (group & individual), in therapy, financial management, life skills and case management.

  • One woman went from a college semester GPA of 1.8 to a GPA of 4.0!


Help us continue this vital work, please partner with us as a ‘Life-Saver’ monthly giver and or give a one off gift all tax-deductible. Give at jcfreedomhouse.com/donate
