Jesse’s House Inc.

We would like to take a moment to introduce you to an amazing organization that will benefit from PWB Joy of Hope Foundation.

Jesse’s House Inc., originally known as the Forsyth County Youth Shelter, was founded in 1998. They currently serve girls up to age 21 who are still in DFCS care. Their new shelter serves a capacity of 12 female youth. Each youth is provided with an individual bedroom as well as a library/computer lab, fitness room, game room, basketball court and common room. They are allowed to remain in their care until more permanent housing can be found. Since inception in 1998, Jesse’s House has served over 900 female youth from over 21 counties in Georgia. Jesse’s House takes pride in providing a safe haven and excellent care of these young ladies during a difficult period in their lives.

Although they are not currently accepting drop off donations right now due to Covid-19, they would greatly appreciate anything sent via Amazon. Please email for delivery mailing address. Dream Dinners offers virtual e-gift cards as well to help with meals. Please enter the email: when purchasing.

During this difficult time, food donations are extremely helpful as well. Grocery store food or treating our girls to a meal from a local restaurant is a special treat for them. It helps us and the economy. Thank you for your consideration and stay well! Email us at to coordinate a time to drop off your items.

Jesse’s House always appreciates gift card donations that can be used for girls needs throughout the year. Gift cards could vary from Visa, Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, Academy Sports, AMC, Nail gift certificates, etc.
