Providence Ministries Homeless Men's Shelter
“Homelessness is No Respecter of Persons”
We Offer Refuge For Those Weathering the Storm
“Hunger and homelessness are at record levels in US cities… At a time of historic economic crisis, the issues of hunger and homelessness in America are more prevalent than ever.

On the Forefronts of the Homeless Epidemic in Georgia and Tennessee
Providence Ministries homeless shelter is on the forefronts of the fight against the homelessness epidemic in Georgia.
