CHRIS Kids Rainbow Program Independent Living
Description

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.

Covenant House
Description

At Covenant House Georgia (CHGA), we are much more than a shelter. We provide more than a bed and a meal for youth experiencing homelessness and escaping trafficking; we show unconditional love and give comprehensive support so that our youth can and will realize their fullest potential.

CRISIS SHELTER

Emergency shelter ranging from 30-90 days is provided to young people ages 18-24. Medical and mental health care is provided with the focus on primary care, ob/gyn care, prenatal care, STD, HIV, asthma and diabetes screening, health education, and drug awareness and education. Youth who are suffering with severe and persistent mental illness receive or are referred to psychiatric counseling, medication management and help finding supported permanent housing. Youth in the Crisis Shelter participate in educational and vocational programs, learn basic life skills, and seek employment with the goal of creating an independent, sustainable future for themselves.

RIGHTS OF PASSAGE

As is the case for many of our youth, a stay in the crisis shelter is not long enough to become self-sufficient. The Rights of Passage program is our independent living program designed to give them more time to reach the goal of self-sufficiency. It is a 24-bed onsite and 4-bed offsite program that youth are eligible for after they have stabilized in the Crisis Shelter and obtained employment. Case managers assist youth as they transition into independent living.

Mental Health America of Georgia (MHAG)
Description

Mission: to enhance the mental health and wellness of Georgians through education, outreach, and advocacy.

Youth Programs

Kids on the Block  (KOTB) is an educational puppetry program that uses life-sized, multicultural puppets to promote mental wellness for children. The presentations are designed to help children understand their feelings and encourage communication of problems or stressors that affect them at home, school, and in other venues. KOTB serves as a non-threatening vehicle through which children can articulate issues that they might otherwise feel uncomfortable talking about.

Leadership Empowerment and Access Program (LEAP) a pilot model designed through Mental Health America of Georgia’s Youth Programs. This program provides peer development to support young people, 16-26- at risk of behavioral health challenges or managed behavioral health conditions prepare for employment opportunities in various workforce industries. LEAP will support participants by providing tools and skills to gain self-empowerment, personal growth, and life-skills on their journey to achieve or maintain either full-time employment or entrance into a post-secondary education opportunity.

Warmlines
Description

 

A warm line is an alternative to a crisis line that is run by “peers,” generally those who have had their own experiences of trauma that they are willing to speak of and acknowledge.

Unlike a hotline for those in immediate crisis, warmlines provide early intervention with emotional support that can prevent a crisis. The lines are typically free, confidential peer-support services staffed by those who have experienced mental health conditions themselves. If you are outside of the State of Georgia use the link below:

Cares Warmline (844) 326-5400  Daily, 8:30am-11pm       National
