IOH was founded in 1992 to combat the growing problem of family homelessness. A group of churches in the North Atlanta area banded together to offer long term solutions to the problem. They have a broad base of support that includes individuals, churches, community groups, state, county, foundation, and corporate giving. They believe in keeping families together while they work on the issues that made them homeless. They also concentrate on the children, believing that they too must be served to stop the cycle of poverty and homelessness.

They have 10 on-site furnished apartments and 3 off-site apartments for families in their program. They provide a comprehensive after school and summer day camp program for the children in their program as well as for other homeless children in the community. They have a strong volunteer program that augments the services that they are able to provide to their families. They have a vocational assessment program to help each adult evaluate their employment prospects and future. They provide a thorough course on basic living skills which includes budgeting and finance, parenting, home maintenance, nutrition, and employment skills. In the last 13 years they have served over 170 families and have a success rate of between 60-70%. Families typically triple their income while at IOH.

Services

Lean On Me, Inc., founded in 1998 was established to provide a safe and secure environment for two parent homeless families who want to and are capable of becoming financially independent and self sustaining. The founders of Lean On Me saw where there were shelters for men and shelters for women and children, but none (or very few) where the family could stay together while going through this crisis of being homeless. They felt it was essential to the well being of the family that they stay together in order to make it through this crisis. Lean On Me, Inc. provides a stable home while providing job search skills, life skills and financial planning so that the families will have a firm foundation on which to build once they leave their program. Lean On Me, Inc. also provides basic necessities to those that have been devastated by major catastrophies such as hurricanes and floods.

Lean On Me provides transitional housing and referrals and resources to homeless families.
