Nicholas House is an Atlanta shelter that provides housing to homeless families regardless of family makeup. We provide temporary housing while addressing the root causes of family homelessness so a family may never be homeless again.

Helping homeless families achieve self-sufficiency.
We provide supportive services through our shelter on Boulevard, our scattered-site apartment rapid re-housing program Homeless to Homes (H2H), our Home Again rapid rehousing and homelessness prevention program, and our newly launched New Horizons program for chronically homeless families. All families have up to two years of follow-up support after leaving direct services.
Nicholas House understands that providing basic subsistence – food and shelter – is necessary but not sufficient to prevent most homeless families from becoming homeless again. Three main goals and three unique factors make Nicholas House an incredibly special place where positive, lasting change happens.
Our mission makes a difference. More than 80% of families maintain their own housing a year or more after exiting Nicholas House.
Three Main Goals
- Earn a living wage
- Maintain the physical, mental and social health of parents and children
- Maintain safe and stable housing
Three Unique Elements
- Any family composition
- Accountability based
- Outcome oriented
