Our Charity

Meet Wild Rumpus' 2018 Partner, Athens Area Homeless Shelter!


Providing collaborative, comprehensive services to homeless individuals and families working toward sustainable independence (website)

“Our shelter and housing programs are for families with dependent children. If you or someone you know is homeless and fits this criteria please call the shelter to check for availability or be connected with other agencies in the community.”

OUR MISSION- “AAHS offers several services for both those experiencing homelessness and those at-risk. The Almost Home program is a housing shelter for families with children. Participants of this program have access to holistic case management while they work toward being stably housed. The Going Home program involves rapid rehousing and homelessness prevention by offering families experiencing homelessness and those at-risk of homelessness holistic case management as they become independent. JobTREC is an employment support services program available to help clients in the Almost Home and Going Home programs take additional steps toward self-sufficiency. All My Money provides financial literacy education to clients in the community in various settings, including group classes, individual counseling and monthly seminars. Each program is designed to help at-risk members of the community stabilize and maintain independence.”
