Open 365 days a year, the Clifton Sanctuary is the oldest house-of-worship shelter operating in Atlanta. The staff, volunteers, board of directors, and our guests invite you to become acquainted with our ministry through this web site, and we hope you will be moved to action and become a part of this ministry.

changing the face

One man at a time, we are working to show that homelessness is not helplessness, and disability is not inability.

Why Clifton?

Find out more about what makes us thankful for Clifton and why we help. Clifton is an emergency shelter with over 70% success rate for its guests (including those who do not graduate). It is this kind of personal attention to the individuals in our community that changes not only homelessness, but the face of homelessness. We want each person to value themselves as God sees them, to know that we are all creating beauty on our journey, and that homelessness is not helplessness. Find out more as we continue updating our website and social media pages — and contact us to join our mailing list!
