The Atlanta Children’s Shelter provides a total family service model exclusively to homeless families with young children under the age of 5. Prior to official enrollment into the Atlanta Children’s Shelter, families must be staying in a homeless shelter at the time of intake with a child between the ages of 6 weeks – 5 years. School age children are ineligible.
