North Georgia Angel House is home to 19 girls ranging in ages 12-21. The home has seven bedrooms and four bathrooms with a large spa tub for relaxing. Our kitchen takes on the aroma of a restaurant in the evenings as the girls practice their Independent Living Skills with menu planning and preparation in a supervised setting.
When the girls are not cooking or relaxing in their rooms, they may be found in the family room where community meetings are held to problem solve. Community Meetings consist of problem solving skills and real life issues that the girls share with others to seek input from their peers.
When problems can not be solved in Community Meetings, the girls hold “Peer Court” to assess the severity of petty crimes such as truancy, smoking, stealing and failure to follow house rules. A final disposition leads to consequences such as loss of privileges, failure to participate in scheduled activities, essay writing or restitution. The agency also offers Mediation for children and families that are looking to resolve conflicts in lieu of court.
Whether it’s reading, swimming, enjoying friends or completing routine chores at home, our girls function as part of one large extended family. Both Individual and Group Therapy are held on and off site as well as supervised Family Time. Tutoring is available to students who are struggling to maintain a C average or better.
Our primary function is to give girls the skills necessary to reach emancipation and succeed. We strive to teach our girls money management, conflict resolution, time management, menu planning, family planning, resume writing, employment skills and many others workshops to help reach self sufficiency.
Angel House takes great pride in serving all girls in Northern Georgia for both short and long term stays.
