Helping the homeless in Lumpkin County
There is no way to accurately determine how many homeless people there are in our county, but our public school and law enforcement officials can attest that the need to house people without homes is great.
Our mission, simply, is two-fold:
1. Aid in homelessness prevention by offering life-skills workshops and referrals to partner agencies.
2. Establish self-sufficiency to families and single women in need by providing transitional housing, counseling services, and basic life-skills training, .
North Georgia Interfaith Ministries, Inc., operates Jeremiah’s Place, Lumpkin County’s only transitional housing for the homeless. Jeremiah’s Place is a four-acre campus with four duplex houses, located on Red Oak Flats Road in Lumpkin County.
All operational funding for Jeremiah’s Place comes from private donations and grants.
