About The Children’s Village at Christian City

Since 1965, The Children’s Village at Christian City, has provided a safe haven for children who have been abandoned, abused or are otherwise homeless. Children ages 5-18 live in cottages with full-time house parents, where concentrated efforts are put forth to heal their wounded spirits and break the cycle of abuse they have endured. A warm home, healthy meals, clean clothing, quality education, necessary counseling, and a lot of loving care are provided to the children who come to the campus. Some children stay for a short time, while others spend their entire childhoods at The Children’s Village at Christian City. The campus is also a licensed National Safe Place agency dedicated to helping runaway and homeless youth.

About Christian City

Today, there are more than 1,000 residents living on the 500-acre Christian City campus, located on the southwest side of Atlanta between Fairburn and Fayetteville. The community includes The Children’s Village, patio homes for active seniors, apartments for seniors on limited incomes, a thrift store, a 200-bed skilled nursing & rehabilitation center, a 150-bed assisted living center, and two specialty units for victims of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
