Mentoring Program - Drake House

Since January 2013, North Metro Chapter Members have been  serving as on-site mentors at the Drake House, a shelter that houses homeless women and children in Roswell, Georgia. 

About The Drake House

The Drake House mission is to provide short term crisis housing, assessment, support, and empowerment to homeless mothers and their children in the North Fulton area. It was established to support mothers and children in their effort to recover from their interim homeless situation, keep the family in tact, and provide them with the resources to return to self-sufficient housing.

The Drake House Residential Assessment Center addresses a long-standing need for emergency housing for women and children in the north Fulton community. They offer residential housing and in-depth assessments to approximately 40-50 families a year. Each family stays approximately 90 days. The target population is single mothers with minor children. These mothers may be unemployed or underemployed and lack sufficient income to meet all the expenses of life in the North Fulton community.

Residents participate in a goal setting process and an empowerment plan. Initial goals include addressing medical needs of the mother and the children, and the educational needs of the children. Onsite life skills classes are conducted every Monday evening on topics such as job readiness, personal finances, parenting skills, and health and wellness. An advocacy program provides encouragement, motivation, and support during the family’s stay.
