There doesn’t seem to be a better time of year for HomeAid Atlanta to have completed one of their extraordinary community service projects. Earlier this week, HomeAid Atlanta, with the help of the Decatur Cooperative Ministry, hosted a dedication and recognition ceremony to officially open the Winn House, which is a newly renovated transitional house for homeless families. At this time of year, there could not be a better present to anyone than the safety and comfort of a place to call home.
While the house is owned by North Decatur Presbyterian Church, the day to day operations are the responsibility of the Decatur Cooperative Ministry, which is an Atlanta nonprofit organization that serves homeless families in the Decatur/DeKalb area. The dedication and recognition ceremony, held at the site of the home in Decatur, included speakers from HomeAid Atlanta and DCM, as well as a touching testimonial from a current DCM client. In addition, Dr. Joel Alvis, pastor of NDPC, offered a house blessing.
The rehabilitation of The Winn House allows it to once again provide a dignified place where homeless families in the Decatur area can rebuild their lives. The newly renovated home will begin helping those in need as soon as next week, as a homeless mother and her three young daughters will move into the home – just in time for Christmas. Thanks to HomeAid Atlanta, it very well can be a happy holiday season.
