After reviewing CDC guidelines, we plan to continue our quarantine until early next week, at which point we will be retested for COVID-19. If all tests come back negative, we hope to reopen all services on Friday, October 2nd. Our reopening is dependent on receiving all tests back by October 2nd and upon receiving all negative results.
Again, thank you all so much for your support and patience during this uncertain time. While these have not been easy decisions to make, every decision is made with the health and safety of our guests, team, and volunteers at the forefront of our minds.
To provide a safe and comfortable place for those in homelessness in Athens, Georgia, as they navigate the path towards sustainable housing.
We envision an Athens where every person has a safe and comfortable place to stay each night.
Bigger Vision of Athens is a 365-day shelter for those in homelessness in Athens, Georgia. Bigger Vision provides guests with a safe and comfortable place to stay for up to 13 hours, dinner, showers or laundry on an alternating schedule, hygiene items they may need, and breakfast in the morning.
The Emergency Shelter Program provides a temporary place for those in homelessness to shelter themselves from the elements. The Abundant Life Program provides a sustainable place while they obtain the education and certifications necessary to permanently end homelessness for them and their families. Graduates of Abundant Life transition from homelessness into their own sustainable housing opportunity, skipping over poverty in the process.
