Atlanta Homeward Choir

The Atlanta Homeward Choir is a men’s choir whose members come from all walks of life, some with prior music training and many without. Entering its third season, the Atlanta Homeward Choir has received national and international media attention and continues to grow as it shares its mission to uplift, encourage and instill a sense of community through music. Many members of the choir are guests of the Central Night Shelter, a joint effort of Central Presbyterian Church and the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, both located on Capitol Hill in downtown Atlanta.  The Shelter provides a warm place to sleep, a nourishing meal and a hot shower for approximately 100 men every night.  Many of the men are currently working or actively seeking employment. The Atlanta Homeward Choir uplifts the men who participate while changing the perception of homelessness in the community by exposing the gifts in these fellow human beings who have been so easily overlooked.
