The Atlanta Women’s Foundation (AWF) awarded $22,000 to Nicholas House as part of its 2013 spring grant cycle. The mission of Nicholas House is to help homeless families achieve self-sufficiency by providing a temporary place to live while identifying and addressing the root causes of a family’s homelessness, so they may never become homeless again. Nicholas House provides temporary housing to more than 300 people annually (70% children) in a group shelter located on Boulevard and more than 45 scattered site apartments. Program services include intensive case management and individual service plans that define a mutually agreed-upon path to self-sufficiency and a time line for achievement.
Founded in 1986, The Atlanta Women’s Foundation’s mission is to be a catalyst for change in the lives of women and girls. AWF identifies and leverages community resources to make a significant impact on breaking the cycle of multi-generational poverty. The Foundation has invested more than $12 million in Atlanta nonprofit organizations and is the only public foundation in Georgia dedicated solely to women and girls.
