Our Projects

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.

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.

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. The Emma's Attic II Boutique is now open downtown. A thrift store will open on Hill street soon.
