Newnan-Coweta Angel’s House, Inc.

Newnan-Coweta Angel’s House, Inc.

Like most charitable endeavors, Angel’s House has its roots in a group of concerned members of the community who saw a need and set about to help. It began with monetary donations for presents at Christmastime and grew into an annual humanitarian fund for children in foster care. In October 2000, a crisis developed when the lack of an urgent foster care facility forced children and social workers to stay overnight at the county Department of Family and Children’s Services (DFCS) office. DFCS called on this concerned community group for help. They quickly secured a room at the local men’s shelter, and this temporary solution convinced the group that a county emergency shelter was desperately needed. The newly formed Newnan-Coweta Children’s Shelter Board went to work raising the one million dollars needed to fund construction of a permanent home and start-up program.
