Our Vision

To end chronic homelessness among female veterans in our communities.

Who We Are

Genesis Joy House is a transitional homeless shelter exclusively for homeless female veterans. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization we provide day education, job training and mental health programs to all (male and female) veterans. For these heroes, the return to civilian life is very hard. Many suffer from issues such as PTSD, traumatic brain injury and military sexual trauma.

Testimonial

“While attending the Ask A Banker webinar through Genesis, I learned many different things that I believe were vital. Everyone was nice and patient with us and explained everything so clearly. I learned about the home buying process, how important it is to save, interest rates and banking insights. I am thankful for the invite to attend."

“The Ask A Banker webinar that Genesis Joy House provided was really informative for me. I learned a lot about how to keep my money more secure. It was especially eye opening to learn the difference between Zelle and other cash apps like Venmo and Cash App."

“I wasn’t aware that you can receive two free credit reports a year in the state of Georgia until I attended the financial literacy webinar through Genesis Joy House. I also have been working on building my credit through the information that I received.”

“I needed an understanding regarding a regular savings account versus a money market savings, and now I better understand the difference between the two, from the financial literacy webinar through Genesis, and have since opened a money market account.”

“I was very thankful to be a part of the Ask A Banker webinar that was offered by Genesis Joy House and Truist Bank. I needed help in regards to an annuity that I’ve inherited and I needed to find out what direction to go regarding a payout. I was treated very well by all those concerned and was given some great advice which I’ve utilized.”

"Nobody wants to say, 'I can't put a roof over my head'; Nobody wants to say, 'I need help clothing my children'. At Genesis, we are bringing them to the next level they need in order to be able to stand on their own."

"Genesis Joy House has been an amazing Bright Light in some of the darkest, loneliness moments in my life. When I think of Genesis, the one word that comes to mind is "dignity" they are NOT a hand out, they're a "Hand Up". When life's tragedy hit my family, I didn't even know how to ask for help. I had assumed those closest to us would be the ones to help us, sadly enough the only thing people said to us was, "we'll pray for you". While emotionally that may have offered some comfort, it did not come even close to reaching our needs. In daily living we do not need for nothing, but when this life crisis came so fast and was so incredibly overwhelming my family was stunned. It was so overwhelming I literally felt like I was going to have a breakdown. This is when the team at Genesis, led by the amazing woman of God, Margaret Queen-Flower, calmed me down enough to get me to tell them exactly what my needs were. It took me a couple of days to respond to Mrs. Flowers because I could not believe someone was going to help. Then the calls started to come' there were real people, literally going to give me the things I needed from diapers, to baby beds, clothes, toys, food, toiletries and so so much more. All while preserving my dignity about needing help. We are a simple family, going about our daily lives, and we needed help. Genesis was there to pick us up. THANK YOU Genesis from the bottom of our hearts."

"After combat, it can be very difficult to return to your normal self. It can be a real struggle without the right services in place. Genesis gives veterans a second chance."

I called Genesis Joy House seeking help for my sister. I had no idea of what to expect or do but after speaking with Mrs. Margarette, she pointed me in the right direction. She put me in contact with several organizations that was willing and able to help and she constantly followed up with me to see if I had gotten the help that I needed. Mrs. Margarette definitely goes above and beyond her call of duty, as she strives to give veterans the help that they deserves. Genesis Joy House is blessed to have her on their staff and our community is blessed to have Genesis Joy House, to serve our veterans.

I had the opportunity to speak with the Founder/CEO of “Genesis Joy House” in Warner Robins, GA and I must say she was very pleasant and the work she is doing to help Veterans in that area is amazing. If you are looking for an Organization to support or even if you support an Organization go and support this one also. The reward is great. Support our Veterans and the work that this Organization is doing!
