HomeAid Atlanta volunteers and supporters recently gathered to celebrate the completion of five brand-new apartments at North Georgia Angel House (NGAH) in Canton. By providing shelter, life skills, food and many other valuable services, NGAH helps women and young girls in, and aging out of, foster care.
Project construction began in the spring of 2021 and reached completion in December of last year. Volunteers transformed a metal storage building on the NGAH campus into five 300 square feet apartments for young women transitioning out of the foster care system who are not yet ready for independent living.
At the December 10 ribbon-cutting event, Lead Construction Volunteer Austin Lineberry with New River Building Company shared, “Whenever we reached out to our trade partners for donations, they were excited to get involved and donated gladly. This speaks volumes about HomeAid.”
Lineberry himself is a custom home builder and provided many personal touches to the project. Lineberry also came up with the official name of the project, saying “Jasmine means sweet love, amiability, grace, elegance, the basis of Jesus. I hope that these young women will take those things with them into the world after NGAH.”
Ronnie Cline with Taylor Morrison, Lineberry’s construction partner on the project, was also honored at the ribbon-cutting event with a proclamation by the Georgia House of Representatives.
The completion of the Jasmine House marks the fourth construction project with North Georgia Angel House and HomeAid Atlanta.
