TOGETHER, WE WILL CHANGE THE DIRECTION OF THOUSANDS OF LIVES.

Imagine you are a child who has experienced severe trauma in your short life due to abuse and neglect. You’ve witnessed extreme violence. You were taken away from your parents, or abandoned by them, and you’ve survived in a succession of foster homes and facilities. No one has been able to help you cope with your feelings and you don’t know who you can trust. Well-meaning people are not equipped to deal with your mistrust, withdrawal, and lashing out. Labeled as a behavior problem, you are moved to yet another foster home, and the cycle continues.

CHRIS 180 was founded to help children like these, and we have grown  over 37 years to help children, youth, adults and families who have been through trauma of all kinds: trauma like aging out of foster care into homelessness,  being separated from family by incarceration or hospitalization, and much more. Today, our programs fill the gaps in existing systems to heal children, strengthen families, and build community. 

Here is what your donations can do: 

  • $25 – Feeds 5 homeless youth at our Drop-in Center, The SPOT
  • $50 – Provides a night of housing for a homeless youth 
  • $75 - Provides a tank of gas for a van that takes youth to medical and dental clinic appointments 
  • $100 – Provides MARTA cards for a month for homeless youth who visit our Drop-In Center, The SPOT
  • $200 – Provides a welcome home kit with essential household items for a homeless young adult moving in to our Summit Trail apartment complex on campus
  • $300 – Provides holiday gifts for one foster child living in a group home 


Every gift makes a difference. Your gift to CHRIS 180 provides housing, counseling, training and vital support to children, youth and families who need it. We can’t do it without you.
