  • IOH was built in 1992 to provide transitional housing for homeless, working families. The facility is located on Buford Highway in Doraville, Georgia.
  • IOH is not a shelter.  The facility consists of small, separate apartments offering families privacy and dignity while they work toward permanent independence and self-sufficiency.
  • All adult residents of IOH must be employed full-time and have at least one child under the age of 16.
  • The IOH program includes a monitored saving requirement, professional counseling, case management, life skills classes and a supportive non-judgmental community.
  • Families are able to save money, improve credit scores and repair family relationships while living together in a safe and stable environment.
  • Once accepted into the program, residents can live at IOH for up to 2 years while improving the financial and emotional well-being of the family.
  • The program is based on accountability and respect. Each family enters into a binding contract with IOH, contributes a minimal monthly program fee, and is required to save each month.
  • Upon graduation from IOH, the goal is for families to stay together, remain free from government assistance and able to maintain private housing. IOH strives to ensure that our graduates are never homeless again.
  • To date, 70 families have achieved first-time homeownership by graduation date. Many more have gone on to purchase homes in the years after. Most of our children have gone on to attend college. 
  • IOH does not accept any government funding.  We accomplish our mission through the generosity of individuals, businesses, local churches and grants.
