Beacham Gives Back: Donates $11,902 to Our House Shelter

The Our House Shelter in Atlanta, Georgia was the last quarterly charity of 2018. Formerly known as the Genesis Shelter, Our House strives to help homeless families stay together, grow in personal development, and take the steps toward bettering their lives. Beacham and Company REALTORS® agents and staff in total donated $11,902 to the shelter.

Our House is an organization that hosts homeless families in two shelters in Atlanta: Downtown and Decatur. In addition to these 18-room shelters, they also have two early childhood education facilities for homeless children. One of the unique aspects of the organization is that it aims to keep families together. Other shelters have restrictions on who may stay, but Our House allows the families to stay together regardless of age or gender. Further, to be allowed into an Our House shelter, families must have a newborn child. During a family’s 6-month stay, they are taught practical life skills and coached on how to get a job. The education facilities are unique in the fact that they allow both children residing outside and inside the shelter to attend. Our House recognizes that finding childcare can be expensive and stressful for some families living below the poverty line.

If you would like to submit a charity for consideration, you can email us at [email protected]. Please keep in mind that charities must be approved by our agent.  If you know a Beacham agent, we encourage you to contact them directly about participation in this program.
