Welcome to The Cottage
The purpose of "The Cottage" is to provide a residential shelter for neglected and abused boys and girls of Walker, Dade, Catoosa and Chattooga counties.
The Cottage will accept children from 13 to 17 years old, regardless of race, sex, nationality or ethnic origin. The Cottage accepts referrals from the Department of Family and Children's Services (DFCS).
The Cottage has allowed children to remain within close proximity to their home of origin. This helps foster and maintain relationships with their family members. Prior to The Cottage opening, children from our communities were placed in the southern half of Georgia. This prevented most of the children from visiting with their families due to lack of transportation, financial resources and other factors that were not conducive to the reunification goals.
The Cottage's objective is to maintain a safe, secure, family environment for our children who are displaced from their homes due to abusive and/or neglectful situations.
Please do not hesitate contact us if you or someone you know needs our help.
