Foster Youth and Young Adults
MISSION: To heal children, strengthen families and build community.
Our work has always been underscored by our belief in acceptance and equity, that everyone deserves the support needed to change the direction of their lives. CHRIS 180 is the first and largest nonprofit organization in Georgia to openly celebrate and serve LGBTQ+ youth. Serves foster and at-risk teens and young adults ages 17-21.
Safe Housing Options:
Summit Trail Apartment Community: To help young adults, ages 17-24, better prepare for self-sufficient lives after foster care, we opened the Summit Trail Apartment Community to provide supervised living for those who are homeless, parenting, leaving juvenile justice and/or mental health systems. This supportive housing community helps young adults learn the skills necessary for productive adulthood in a supervised environment.
JourneyZ group homes program provide safe and stable housing, specialized counseling, and individualized life/financial skills training and support services to high needs children in Georgia’s foster care system.
Gateway Foster Home program: Our Gateway Foster Home program provides safety and stability within a supportive, therapeutic family environment for children and sibling groups, ages birth to 17, while preparing for adoption.
