Our mission at Decatur Cooperative Ministry is to help families facing homelessness settle into safe, stable homes and build healthy lives filled with peace, hope and opportunity.
The following programs help us address homelessness from all angles:
Hagar’s House offers emergency night shelter and assessment to homeless families with children. The 5-room 30-bed shelter provides safe, comfortable accommodations for up to 90 days. While enrolled, families have access to daily showers, a tech center, laundry facilities, and two meals a day.
Our Family House program offers up to six months of transitional housing for homeless families with compound barriers to housing stability. We operate four single-family houses and apartments throughout DeKalb County. Families stay in these houses without paying rent or utilities; they are encouraged, however, to save 30% of their income to assist in the transition from homelessness to permanent housing.
Our Family Success program offers permanent supportive housing to chronically homeless families (i.e., those with extensive histories of homelessness who have at least one member with a diagnosed disability). These families receive long-term support and services, ensuring lasting housing stability.
Project Take Charge
Through Project Take Charge, DCM offers homeless prevention services to low-income and at-risk seniors, Veterans, and families. Clients with a documentable threat of eviction, foreclosure, or utility disconnection may receive financial assistance to cover rent, mortgage, and utilities. PTC also offers food security to low-income families through the operation of a food pantry and three food cooperatives.
All clients who receive financial assistance attend a three-part financial management course. Culminating with a one-on- one budgeting consultation, the course offers participants the knowledge and skills needed to achieve long-term financial stability.
HomeStretch guides working homeless families toward permanent housing and lasting stability.

Mission: HOPE Atlanta seeks to help Georgians avoid homelessness and hunger through a comprehensive approach that equips them with the tools for lifelong stability.
For many, a bit of bad luck can spell disaster. A missed paycheck. A health crisis. A violent storm. For many, hard times can easily lead to homelessness. We’re here when they need a shoulder to lean on.
When someone experiencing homelessness reaches out, our goal is to get them off the streets as quickly as possible. We help cover rent, security deposits and moving costs to get them back on their feet.
We help stranded people without means return to their home communities and support systems, covering transportation costs and coordinating with loved ones.
