Sheltering Arms is Georgia’s longest-established, and one of the largest, nonprofit providers of early childhood education. Since 1888, we have provided children their best possible start in a safe, nurturing environment where they can learn and grow. We are also committed to helping their families make life more secure now and for generations to come.
Today, Sheltering Arms has 13 metro Atlanta centers in Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fulton and Gwinnett counties, and offers more than 3,000 young children each year high-quality early childhood education and comprehensive family services designed to transform communities and break the cycle of generational poverty.
Sheltering Arms transforms the lives of children, their families and communities through model early childhood education and leadership in the field.
Sheltering Arms sees thriving communities where all families hold the power to create opportunity for themselves and their children.
