Celebrating 19 Years of Change

Gilgal is a Christ-centered, long-term, recovery residence for women experiencing homelessness due to drug and alcohol addiction. Through our one-year, two-phase program, we seek to transition women from crisis and homelessness to stability and independent living.

We provide food, clothing and housing, as well as a full range of recovery services, spiritual nourishment, workforce development, life skills training, and transitional support. We are located in Atlanta and currently serve the metro area, as well as greater Georgia.

Gilgal has a 501(c)(3) designation and relies upon generous donations from individuals, churches, businesses, foundations, and community organizations.

Life In Recovery: Higher Ground

Gilgal operates three residential recovery homes, as well as one administrative building. Each facility is equipped and staffed to aid women in their recovery and transition to independent living.

Gilgal women receive individualized assessments, comprehensive case management, and ongoing programming and support services in a clean, safe environment. We also provide them with the basic essentials (food, clothing and housing), as well as biblical enrichment to support their spiritual growth.
