Emmaus House uses a two-generation approach to help families achieve economic success and help children to increase academic achievement. Emmaus House harnesses the power of community, education, hope, and love to dismantle poverty, racism, and other barriers to opportunity in the lives and communities they serve.
As a place-based mission of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta, Emmaus House serves their neighbors in Peoplestown, a Southside Atlanta neighborhood where 48% of the residents live below the poverty line. Programs provide year-round education and STE(A)M enrichment programs for children and youth, drop-in assistance and case management for adults seeking economic and family stability, and advocacy in partnership with neighbors in Peoplestown.
