Why Donate?

Your gift to the Atlanta Children’s Shelter makes a significant positive impact on the children and families we support every day.

It helps provide free quality early childhood education and nutritional meals to children and support services to their parents so that they can obtain stable employment and housing. With a recurring donation, you can make yourself a permanent member of our dedicated community of supporters, and you can commit to standing alongside families as they work to break the cycle of poverty and build a brighter future.

Ways to Give

Monetary Donations

At Atlanta Children’s Shelter, every dollar makes a difference. Monetary donations allow for us to personalize our support to our families’ exact needs. You can give via check or money order either through the mail or by drop-off at our site. Please call Aseelah Williams at 404-937-5431 to schedule a drop-off or give notification of a mailed donation.

Please feel free to call us at 404-892-3713 or send an email to our Development Office to discuss your wishes for the gift, discuss the greatest needs of the families we support, or make an appointment to tour the Shelter.

In-Kind Donations

We highly prefer new items so our kiddos can have safe and quality materials. The only exception is that if you have some gently used children’s books that fit our age range (birth to six), we’d be happy to consider them!

Be sure to call us before coming by. If it’s not the right fit for us at the moment, we’ll gladly suggest other places where your donation could make a difference.
