Located on Buford Hwy. It houses homeless families in transition. Volunteers work at the home doing clerical duties, baby sitting, tutoring etc. This allows resident families to obtain training, job search and other assistance necessary to return them to the community. The mission of IOH is to provide an opportunity for legally married parents who are in an economic crisis to become self sufficient through a transitional housing program. IOH believes that homeless families can rebuild their lives given the proper financial and emotional support, life skills training, personal and spiritual development, education, vocation training, and a stable home environment. Since 1992 IOH has offered a wide array of client services and has been dependent upon community support for financial aid and volunteer assistance.

All Saints Catholic Church has graciously given assistance through a second collection in August and the November Food Drive. Throughout the year All Saints volunteers have direct contact with IOH and have become an integral part of helping families stay together.
