Our Mission
To facilitate social change and empower our veterans and community by providing transitional housing, enrichment programs, and counseling services to improve quality of life.

Our Vision
To advocate on behalf of individuals to assist in establishing security; obtain employment; gain access to education; secure resources, and maintain physical and emotional health with a goal of helping them move towards self-sufficiency and productive members of society.

The Genesis Joy House Transitional Complex will be an independent business model created to assist the needs of our homeless female veterans throughout Middle Georgia and surrounding areas.

The goal of Genesis Joy House is to end chronic homelessness among female veterans in our communities.   Achieving that goal is complex, requiring more than putting a roof over the veterans' heads.   It requires a holistic approach that addresses the "total veteran" and her needs. Genesis housing will come with a full range of support services including meals, an employment and training program, medical advice, and special services related to PTSD, overcoming military sexual trauma, and other challenges faced by veterans.   Intensive case management and counseling are provided to help veterans regain control of their lives.

Genesis Joy House provides effective leadership on behalf of women with challenging backgrounds.  Strategic programming within our organization will include leveraging existing resources with like- minded businesses and organizations throughout the Georgia sector. 

The state of Georgia and our efforts to assist in the coordination of services in our facilities will include the following:

  • Adult Education & Adult Competency
  • Counseling
  • Mentorship and Empowerment
  • Executive Level Training and Placement Services
  • Residential Housing

Coordinated System of Care
The Genesis Joy House Model requires participation from community and families in order to benefit our women holistically.  Agencies, corporation, and faith-based programs linked with the Genesis Joy House Complex will be able to provide special needs and supportive services to assist women more effectively while moving toward long-term sufficiency.  

When these programs work together in a coordinated manner, the needs of women, their outcomes and the opportunities for success are highly improved.

Business Strategy - We've Got The dRIT...
The goal of the Genesis Joy House Complex is to provide homeless female Veteran women with the resources and support needed to gain sufficient living in an atmosphere of Dignity, Respect, Integrity, Trust.

​Believing our women have the necessary resources to achieve independent living, we will call our guests into a higher accountability for their actions or in-actions.  Adults benefit from this philosophy as well as the entire community.

With the increased awareness of the value the community plays in helping reshape the lives of those in need, we are working to form partnerships and strong relational ties with individuals and organizations throughout the state of Georgia and beyond.

We are hopeful that through the ongoing support of others, our guests will continue to receive the care and services they need to help enable them to fully participate and contribute in the community they are a part of. 

We believe that the community will find great interest, and will invest in our model along with the services we provide.  We also understand that it will take a joint effort to serve the needs of the members of our community and ultimately humanity.

The end outcome for the Genesis Joy House Model is to reduce homelessness and recidivism, and increase family values and stability while improving the socioeconomic infrastructure throughout the state of Georgia.  This goal is measured through statistical analysis and is bench marked by national trends.
