After serving the community of Athens for over four years Joy’s House is currently running a go-fund me to keep the doors open. Sarah and Dennis talk to us about how they started keeping just one woman off the streets to now serving up to 6 occupants at a time, sometimes up to 6 months each, and running a thrift store!
Joy’s House serves women and families struggling with domestic violence, addiction and financial hardship. It’s safe to say Sarah and Dennis probably have one of the largest extended families in Athens!

Also check out their Thrift Store at 1428 Freeman Ave in Athens
