Our mission: To Provide Refuge,  Restoration, and Reintegration for homeless women and their families; Now including fathers, sons and Veterans.

For more than 5 years, Emmaus Womens Shelter has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for the hungry, needy and homeless in LaGrange. We conduct the Point In Time homeless population survey every two years to have the homelessness facts. We are always busy helping the homeless and would appreciate your support.  Find out how you can contribute to the future of someone in need through donations of money and time. .

Our Projects

Homelessness doesn't discriminate. We meet every color of the rainbow, from every age group who belong to families or who are single. Some have been abused. Others have been raised with neglect. Many are adult orphans. Often they are partially disabled.

Locally in LaGrange and throughout Troup County and surrounding areas, The Emmaus Shelter is a vocal advocate for the homeless and displaced. We provide a Day Center and night shelter to help women and their families in need.

In order to go beyond refuge to restoration of our sheltered friends we conduct the Emma's Attic Retail Therapy Project. It keeps everyone busy during the day and volunteers are welcome to join us. Soon, Emma's Attic II will open downtown. 

Guests of the EMmaus shelter are willing to serve

Our Mission

Keeping Troup Beautiful, it's Being A Good Neighbor


Guests of the Emmaus Shelter practice being Good Neighbors. We try to always leave things better than we found them. Recently, the guests were rewarded for over 100 hours of trash collection with pizza at Mighty Joe's during the Keep Troup Beautiful celebration. .
