The Drake House

The Drake House is a 16-unit crisis residential assessment center for homeless women and children in Roswell. The house is named after Mary Drake, a Roswell native who helped establish North Fulton Community Charities. Besides offering emergency housing to 40 – 50 families each year, the Drake House assists women to reach a goal of housing self-sufficiency by offering weekly life skills classes in job readiness, personal finances, parenting skills, and health and wellness. Mothers may be unemployed or underemployed, and families can stay for a period of 90 to 120 days. The house always needs financial donations, but also accepts donations of pantry and toiletry items, clothing, and kitchen, bed and bath items. Furniture donations can be made to Movers and Shakers to help women in their transition to their own homes at the end of their stay at Drake House.
