OVER 20 YEARS OF IMPACT IN THE WESTSIDE OF ATLANTA
How It Works
Our process takes place under one roof in the most dangerous zip code in Atlanta. The needs are great but when likeminded community members, organizations, and volunteers partner together we are able to see amazing things happen.
Crime, disease, lack of opportunity.
Food, housing, emergency healthcare.
Education, job training, financial literacy.
New jobs, stronger families, local opportunities.
Understanding the Need
City of Refuge is located in the middle of one of Atlanta’s most historic and struggling neighborhoods where nearly 40% of the residents live below the Federal Poverty Level.
Stories of Transformation
At City of Refuge, we know that transformation only takes place in the context of hard work and loving relationships. Please take a moment and meet some of our heroes that have decided to impact their own lives and the lives around them by entering our campus.
Our campus programs are a result of over two decades of experience in community development. Our programs are holistic and based on four key impact areas: Health & Wellness, Housing, Vocational Training, and Youth Development.

Here, the majority of housing stock is abandoned or derelict, with boarded-up and burnt-out shells lining the streets. In 30314, the problems are pervasive, and the needs are enormous.
