The Atlanta Homeward Choir is a men’s and women's choir whose participants come from all walks of life, some with prior music training and many without. Entering its fourth 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 the music. Many participants 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 choir season begins when Central Night Shelter opens its doors on November 1 and continues through March 31 when it closes. All shelter guests are invited to participate, as well as to other members of the community who were once homeless and are now housed.
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.
