Hearten House Gospel Rescue Mission


Because homeless individuals are not visible on every street corner, we may be deceived into believing it is not a problem in our town. But there are hundreds of individuals who live in dangerous housing situations, sleep on other’s couches temporarily, or share housing with other families in crowded and stressed conditions. Experts estimate as many as 2,500 men, women and children living in DeKalb County are dangerously near or experiencing homelessness. Housing insecurity creates a host of problems and a cycle of poverty that is very difficult to break free from.
​Families are often torn apart, and the fabric of the community is weakened.


Hearten House Gospel Rescue Mission is a shelter providing restorative care for women experiencing a homeless crisis.
Some women are fleeing domestic abuse; others are pregnant with no support network; many just need a safe place to stay and encouragement as they rebuild their lives.​Using proven strategies, Hearten House staff and trained volunteers will walk alongside women who are ready to overcome  trauma, addictions, and destructive habits, on their way to self-sufficiency.

Together, we can help women find hope, healing, and the love of Christ.

A facility for Hearten House was purchased in 2017 and is now OPEN!
