Opening in 1993, Alice’s House is a non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of children and recognizes the need for children to have a safe harbor from abuse and neglect. To date, over 250 children in need have been served. Children come to Alice’s House for many reasons, including abuse, neglect and other challenging family situations. Our mission is to provide an environment in which these children can feel safe and thrive. Alice’s House provides services based on the conviction that each youth in residence is an individual with the right to the kind of care that meets his or her needs. We believe it is important to preserve and strengthen each child’s family relationships whenever possible. Most children are placed in Alice’s House by the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services. Priority is given to the youth of Carroll County.
