A New Shelter is on the Horizon

Dear fellow NOA supporter,

NOA is very excited to announce that land has been purchased and we have officially begun the New Shelter Building Captial Campaign.

NOA has been fortunate in that our current shelter is graciously donated by the Lumpkin County Board of Commissioners and while we are very thankful to have had this facility to call our shelter for over 20 years, we are bursting at the seams as this shelter is a very small house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms to share between 12 women and children.

We need to raise $800,000!  To date we have raised $435,000 and secured a donated roof, HVAC system, framing, grading and the pre termite treatment.

We need your help to get this facility finished!  If you want to donate, sponsor a room, or provide a service (painting, landscaping, dry wall etc.) please call today!! 

NOA served 2,000 clients in 2023 and sheltered 108 women, men, and children (men are sheltered in nearby motels).  15 clients were placed in local hotels due to lack of space for a grand total of 3,625 bed nights.  Advocates responded to 2,913 crisis calls.  Advocates assisted clients with 154 protective orders and assisted clients with various housing expenses such as rent, utilities as well as transportation, childcare, medical and other expenses totalling $192,077.

A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove… but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child
