Now There's Hope
Empower communities and populations to restore families and improve their overall quality of life. We dedicate ourselves to creating and sustaining communities through equipping people with the tools and techniques needed for them to excel in their lives.
Our services are a series of programs which aide individuals in the path of moving from homelessness to independent living. Each program service is a building block to the next step towards an individual’s independence. By offering a variety of housing and support options, we can ensure that appropriate, supportive environments are available to our clients. Our services include emergency housing, transitional housing, long-term housing, outreach programs, food services and community living support.
Organizations That Work With Us
The Door Transitional Housing Program (The Door)
The Door is a Christ-centered housing program designed to provide homeless men with structure, supervision and discipline while transitioning them to self-sufficiency. This approach ensures that the men will have every effort for positive reintegration into the community. The Door provides individual transition plans that address issues confronting homeless men as they return to the community which includes: career assessment, managing barriers, transition intervention, job seeking, and career planning and job retention.
Men's Assessment Center
The Men’s Assessment Center is a Christ-centered temporary shelter designed to connect homeless men with basic needs based on structured assessments in a triage approach. The program overarching goals are:
- To provide safe, sanitary housing to homeless men;
- To provide a network of services within the community to assist homeless men in searching for transitional or permanent housing and employment; and
- To provide a structured environment that will build character and enhance personal improvement.
Veteran Restoration Housing Program
Research shows that the greatest risk factors for homeless veterans is the lack of support and social isolation after discharge. The Veteran Restoration Housing Program provides housing and supportive services to the homeless veterans in our community. This program is geared to increase their skill levels and income, obtain greater self-determination and achieve self-sufficiency.
Living For Success Program (LFS)
The Living for Success Program is a means to provide decent housing, a suitable living environment and expanded economic opportunities to homeless men. It is specifically designed for working men who are not capable of securing traditional housing due to lack of credit history acceptable to landlords and/or financial institutions. This is a comprehensive and results-oriented program targeted for low-income and/or under-employed men to become renters.
Re-Entry Partnership Housing Program (RPH)
The RPH Program is a 90-day housing program which provides released felons (prison), probationers and Accountability Court clients with stable housing and food, including those with special needs, such as mental health and substance abuse challenges.
Traditional Housing For Offender Reentry (THOR)
Vision 21 has partnered with the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles to provide community-based housing for persons releasing from prison or on probation or parole. The THOR Program is designed for men under direct supervision who are not capable of securing traditional housing due to lack of credit history acceptable to landlords and/or financial resources.

Computers For kids
Computers For Kids provides a chance for school age students to gain technology skills through a 8-week computer class. After completion of the program, the students will receive a refurbished computer and a Certificate of Technical Achievement.
Our Community Outreach Programs help individuals and families' access needed support.
The life skills curriculum helps prepare clients for independent living in the real world. We help our clients develop effective goals that create a healthy balance between their values, priorities, and obligations. They learn how to move toward their goals in a measurable and systematic manner; engaging themselves in a uniquely tailored experience that will strengthen their sense of personal accountability and agency.
Employability skills classes help our clients build the skills necessary to increase their income, attain financial independence, and maintain housing. Unemployment for homeless people is often due to a combination of obstacles such as lack of experience, physical or mental health barriers, challenges related to re-entry from incarceration or hospitalization, and homelessness itself.

The 12 Steps with accompanying Scriptures and the 8 Principles based on the Beatitudes offer participants a clear path of salvation and discipleship; bringing hope, freedom, sobriety, healing, and the opportunity to give back one day at a time. The 12 Steps and the 8 Principles work seamlessly together, tying historical recovery to timeless Biblical teaching.
