To be a light, a ray of hope to people in need. To provide shelter, food, life, and job skills training in a clean, safe, Christian Environment.


 The North East Georgia Homeless Veterans Shelter, a 501C (3) non-profit ministry, in Winder Georgia, that serves homeless veterans in Northeast Georgia area. We have identified a need for a Homeless Veteran’s shelter, with over 420 homeless Veterans in the surrounding area, and even more in northeast Georgia. Currently, our shelter has the capacity to provide up to 52 beds to Homeless Veterans.

We offer transitional housing and access to a comprehensive array of support services to homeless Veterans and their families. Supportive services such as vocational and career development, life skills training, counseling services, and help obtaining Veteran’s benefits, that will allow our Veterans to transition back into the community as productive citizens.

Our shelter is structured in accordance with the VA homeless Veteran per diem program, which allows up to 10 of our available beds to be used by non veterans.

 The Northeast Georgia Homeless Veterans Shelter is a Level One Care Facility. We are not a Treatment Provider. Our Veterans are required to obtain and maintain Full-time employment  

Our eligibility requirements to be considered for housing are the same as the Veterans Administration. You must have completed 180 days or 6 months of Active Duty to be considered a Veteran. You must also have a copy of DA Form DD-214 proving such.

Without the generous support of our community and the collaboration with Action Ministries Inc and other agencies, we could not provide these services to our homeless veterans.
