Jars of Clay & The JOC Help Center

Homelessness Hurts...No one should experience homelessness. No one should be without a safe, stable place to call home.


No one should experience homelessness. No one should be without a safe, stable place to call home. No teenager should have to endure the absence of family. At Jars of Clay our first goal is saving families from homelessness. Can you imagine being homeless and have to sleep on the streets? On a bus? In a hospital waiting room? In the airport? Everyone deserves a home! We offer a housing solution to the homeless called "Home in 30" can you imagine being back in stable housing in 30 days? Well, we help 100's of people fill this dream each month. Let us help you fill your dreams with warm memories, hot chocolate! Additional support to the homeless includes: an address to use, a phone, internet and wifi, clothing and a hot shower, food and groceries, employment support and great friends to encourage you! If you are homeless, know someone that is homeless, or want to help the homeless with us....we welcome you to our third ministry expansion...The Help Center. Give us a call today: 404.228-9753 or 844-211-CLAY

Janice Francis
Janice F says: It was truly a Blessing from God. Everyone was so kind. They took their time to explain the procedures and answer questions. I felt the Love of God all in this place. Even the people that were there for assistance showed love for one another. Thank You JOC for caring. God Bless You and your Ministry.
Trust and Believe
Regina L says: It was something if I tell you about it and you need help you would have to see for yourself. God has provided a program to get my family and I into a home. And we will appreciate our own home and start living together as a family again thank u God for this program we won't be homeless for long.
Jucques B says: It was great everyone with JOC was nice. I want to say thank you to the jOC family and now looking for my own place. The thing is you have to have a jib so that you could afford your apartment or house when you move. They are here to HELP you i must but only for a year.
Feeling blessed
Kim K says: I honestly didn't know what to expect. Everything I tried up to this point was a wash and people kept closing doors in my face. It was becoming very heart breaking and tiresome. JOC has shined a life on myself and my daughter. I am hopeful now and looking forward to the new beginning my daughter and I are about to experience. Thank you so much JOC for all you do! May GOD continue to bless you!

Nateefah M.
Nateefah M says: I came to JOC to get help with a couple of things and so far im happy. I tell everybody you have to put God first and he will open doors for you that you never exspected in 100 years... First thing to do is PRAY and read Psalms 91 before you go to bed and when you wake up and that will protect you in any situation you are in "BELIEVE AND HAVE FAITH AND YOU WILL RECIEVE".
Patti bailey
patti b says: It was a blessing to come Yall get help an the peoples was great an very helpful to me wasn't mean at all IM going to share the word with others people may God keep blessing Yall as Yall bless others take care love yall
Great program :0)
Toccara K says: I feel like Joc is a very good program that help people who need help and give opportunities ti people.
No One Owes you Anything
Jenae S says: I have learned over the last few years that we are responsible for our own situations. Regardless of who we'd like to blame. We should not feel entitled to receiving assistance... You have to start with yourself and acknowledge where you coul have made a decision that would have put you in a different place. We promote, demote and fire ourselves. Therefore when coming here I couldn't have the mentality that THEY BETTER DO... it was more of THEY DO BETTER... giving hope for a brighter future with the expectation that we will do better. We will expand and build on what they have to offer and then give back. You teach a man to fish he will eat for a lifetime!
a family
Kendrea S says: I think it is a very good place to come to get help and joined a family
Very Please
Chris B says: I'm looking forward to moving into my own place very soon. With God all things are possible just believe. Don't go by what you see it's Faith that move God everything you see and hear listen and look for God in it, he work through people. JOC is the part in the Bible that says when you pray beleive it and you shall have it. They do there part, so everyone esle need to do theirs. When you go there just tell the Lord thank you. "Hot off the press" No Charge (Chris Britton)

starr w says: Awesome program!!!
Anonymous L says: "To whom much is given, much will be required." Praise God that he blessed you all to bless others. Like others, I'm in need of this help. I've heard about JOC through word of mouth and went online. I had an appointment on Monday and it was raining. I thought to reschedule but decided against it. Before I went into the building I was praying and ask God for his favor, and when I went in to sit down I was reading the board and in one of the steps it read "Thank God for giving you favor....good success." My experience was a blessing.
Orientation1, OMG! A Blessing! A Miracle!
Tonya H says: I went in thinking nobody is going to help me because, my credit bad, i have a good stable job, going through a divorce, no where to go.. I feel like damaged goods lost out here.. After Orientation, I feel better, praying and hoping for help. My problem now is getting approved. I pawned my title to my car, my paycheck hasn't been enough for hotel stays, etc. Im still standing by God's Grace.....
It was painless!
Tee R says: This is EXACTLY what my daughter and I need and have been praying for. I'm going back Friday with my letter and can't wait for the 2nd part of this amazing process. Thank you SO much!!

Earthly Angels @JOC.
J Patrice D says: I am thankful for the help that showed up through a co-worker grateful for JOC. I asked about the service and hesitated to sign up. Embarrassment. Then I was told I need to move. Where? How? Walk in faith. Your orientation hopeful, informative and Gracious. I did not feel judged. I have work to do and your helping hands to move on...up and out. Thank you God for your Earthly Angels @JOC.

The blessing it appears to be
De'Janae B says: I had my first orientation and I am already aware of how different this program is from any other in its industry. This is one place where homelessness actually feels temporary. Ms. Favors doesn't speak condescendingly and you can tell this is her calling, not her job. I'm just grateful for the experience. SN: This is not for the lazy! You must want a better life and be willing to work for it!
Brittany B.
Britt B says: Since I left my orientation all I could do is cry and hug my kids tight thanking God for his grace and thanking God for Ms. Favors and staff. I have been struggling living from shelter to shelter and been homeless for a year and three months. I am truly thankful and very appreciative of the blessings God has placed in my life. Thank you Ms. Favors and Staff for helping and believing in those who are in need. GOD BLESS YOU ALL... Thank You.💋👍⬆️

Kim F says: I have never been through this situation before and YES it is very stressful. I would like to say thank you Ms. ANITA FAVORS and STAFF for the blessings you all have for my family and me. I am highly grateful for you even considering to look at and to accept me in the JOC program. Ms.Anita you took a big toll of me and when I came back to tell my kids what is about to happen my 15 year old had tears in his eyes of joy .Thank you for ever thing and much more to come... People out there you must prey God is listening to your prayers!!! (Shout goes to Anita Favors, Staffs and most of all GOD)!!!!!♥♥♥♥♥
An Angelic Moment
Denise J says: Oh my God, where do I began. It was a blessing from up above. The director Anita Favor is an angel sent from God with passion for helping others along with a sense of humor. Words cannot explain how I sat through the orientation with tears holding back to know that there are people who really care. All I can do is thank God for meeting one of his disciples. May God continue to bless and I will most certainly spread the GOOD NEWS....
Miracle Blessings
Anjanette B says: Seeing and hearing Anita and the JOC staff, was like listening to an angel...I could not believe it, I knew her and I went to school with her; and who would have thought I would be in a position of great hardship and embarrassment, but Anita grab my hand and dared my to shed another tear and assured me that I have hope and there is a way that my situation can change for the better. I am extremely grateful thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
lynika w says: I would like to thank Ms Anita Favor for giving me hope a letting me know that my heavenly father haven't forgot about me. I never that I could get help with what I'm going through but I see now. Ms. Anita Favor has a heart of gold. Thank you for everything u getting ready to do and what you has already done for me

Ruth M says: 1st Orientation Ruth L Martin: All I have to say is awesome. All God. I thank God for Ms. Anita Favors. She is very comical, which makes it easier for you to accept where you are and to continue reaching for what you know God has and want for you. I am very grateful for her and JOC.
tawanna w says: I greatly appreciate the service that was provided to me from jocatlanta.org Home in-30 program. my experience so far overall set me in a positive position. It's a good feeling to know that there's help out there for people such as myself. That are in need of housing And finding somewhere to stay. My name is tawanna e williams I would like to think y'all in advance for the help and assistance you all will provide to Me and my kid's i am graceful.
A True Blessing
Shondra C says: All too often you find that when you are asking for help the ones that you are requesting assistance from tends to look down on and judge you. This was definitely not the case at JOC. The entire staff were all welcoming with smiling faces, friendly and seemed to genuinely care about what's going in in their client's lives and wanting to help. The process was thorough but quick. I thank God that I heard about this program and was able to get an appointment (the last appointment at that) the same day I was told about it. I pray that God spring up every seed JOC has sown in abundance and that His blessings continuously flows in the lives of those that are lending a helping hand.
My first appointment
Edonna J says: Edonna James: Honestly I felt as if I were lost. I had no hope after losing my job and apartment until I went to these amazing people. I now am more motivated to continue to press on because I feel like someone cares and is fighting for me. I sincerly thank you.
God Sent
George P says: Amazing is the word that expresses what I experienced when I attended the orientation. I did not know what to expect, never having to ask for assistance before; I had a feeling of shame before walking through your doors. When I left, I felt hopeful and inspired. Thank you

Wanda S. R.
Wanda R says: And many shall call you blessed Mrs. Favors! ♥ ♥ ♥ I attended the first orientation on the 24th and I had to stop Ms. Anita to take time to say Hallelujah! I was about to burst on the inside as she explained the program and all that the program entails. My lord, my God...where are the rest of the saints that have the same type services but offer nothing or very little. I pray that this agency continues being a blessing to the many families that it serves. Ms. Anita is a prime example of the word of God when it says, that the harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. Again I want to thank this beautiful woman of God for acts of love and kindness shown to me and everyone that was in attendance on Tuesday. Really I was thinking this was my prayers being answered and I plan to volunteer time back for the help I have been given through the awesome program. I wish there was some type of award for outstanding service, Ms. Favors sure does deserve to be honored for her service in the community. God bless JOC and the staff members for their support as well.
First Appointment
DeDe H says: I'm so blessed to know God can use people to help you. I thank Anita Favors for all she has blessed me with....

Maranda S says: I would like to thank all the staff that helps with this program may god bless you all a hundred fold so you may continue to give people hope and encourage them I sure will like to thank y'all because I was on the edge of giving up but thanks to your program I have hope to reunite with my son thank all of you

Alexius w says: I attended the first appointment down, scared, and feeling alone, but I left with a feeling of hope, power, and that someone is really going to help me and my kids, also have our backs. Mrs. Favor's is such a blessing and my family and I are forever in her debts because I had no where to turn.
Good Clean Vibe
Felicia F says: I was scared at first but as Mrs Favors was explaining the program it was very good vibe an I thank Mrs Favors so much I am glad came an to this program
Vivian C says
Vivian C says: My experience was phenomenal, excellent, magnificent, and encouraging. I was in despair, and felt hopeless prior to walking in the building of jocatlanta.org. After leaving orientation and all the folks of jocatlanta.org I felt empowered, relieved, and like Miss Sophia says in the Color Purple, "There's is a God". I challenge anyone to say Mrs. Favors isn't an advocate for us that don't have a voice or that we are unheard, and no one has no compassion for us while going through eviction and homelessness. I truly beg to differ, to me that statement is false and untrue.
Sertia R
Sertia R says: Ms. Favor was very detail about the program and passionate in her work. To help people in this homeless situation you can tell that the spirit of god was leading her to help his people. I am very thankful to her for what she has done to help people like me, that is going through this hard time cause i just wanted to give up until i heard about this program.
A Real God Warrior
Amanee W says: Not only did Pastor Anita make everyone feel welcome, she also made us feel secure in the fact that we would soon have a place to call our own. She didn't make us feel like outsiders but welcomed us with open arms regardless of how we look or speak. Shes a true warrior for Christ.
Great Resource

A true blessing
yulanda s says: Unfortunately I was evictedfrommy apt this month. l have never heardofthis program. my sisterlives in Detroit and someone there told her about the program. So i thought I would give it a try. Went to first orientation on Tuesday. It was very informative. They answered any questions that you may have. So I'm going to go look for somewhere for me and my kids to live. I'm praying that I find something.
Blessings From Above
Yolanda H says: I was nervous and excited at the same time because I didn't know what to expect at the first meeting. A door has been open for me and my kids to get a brand new start. Everyone made me feel so welcome and at home. I feel that Jars of Clay is truly a blessing to me and my kids. I received my referral letter and I am in the process of looking for our new home.

my first appointment
Lavern M says: Hi there, this program is great. It was very informative and i learned alot especially part about helping keep kids in school and providing for them as well during this time. I do know that the kids feel the pressure and I may even add extra pressure to them because i'm stressed living with my living arrangements... Blessings coming down... Thank you
The Blessing I Was Waiting For
Y. Tanisia H says: I have been down and out for a few years now and I have been waiting and praying for a program like this to help get me back on my feet. I have always been a self sufficient person and with the help of this program I can regain my independence and stability. I thank Ms. Favors and JOC for offering help like this to people like myself. When I thought I was stuck in my situation they really showed me that there is a way out. GOD BLESS
Exie B.
aalta b says: to experience something where they offer help based off their passion, shows that people still assist for the right reasons. i am a situation, not a number. Our Heavenly Father has a special place in his heart for JOC. Just know you are blessed and highly favored
Marisa C says: Couldn't find one person who had completed the program. Program was a mystery to me. I pray that it does work for some. What doesn't work for one can work for another. God bless.
Rip Off
Nicole G says: For those that don't know and I wish someone would"ve told me sooner. Yes you pay the $25.00 and for what really??? Yes you do get alot of hope after the first orientation but it is a complete rip off!! Most of these reviews if you notice are all only after the first orientation. The only thing you paid for was for them to give you verification letters that dont help with anything period. The numbers they give you at the 2nd orientation are numbers you can google and find on your own and when your goal is really to help the homeless your dont take money from them period!!Also when you go to orientation 2 you find out you have to call all the these places yourself and 85% of them dont have funds they will refer you to a help center that does the exact same thing you do at home and calls the same places. It was a total waste of my time and i would never recommend there services to anyone else. They are also under investigation under GA bureau for taking $25 these type of services are not supposed to charge you anything for help you are already homeless really??Good Luck if you decide to use there so called "help" but be careful who knows it might work for you???
they give u hope thats it
clarenda k says: at first I was very hopeful and I can say at the time I needed to that but they also told a bunch of liesI went in April got my referral letter took it to different apartments sum took the letter others didn't after I got approved on my on I went to 2nd orintation at joc pastor favor gave us a letter and a list with agency to help but no one had funding and the agency numbers she gave out u can get off 211 and Google search total rip off if im already homeless why take my $25

It was truly a Blessing from God. Everyone was so kind. They took their time to explain the procedures and answer questions. I felt the Love of God all in this place. Even the people that were there for assistance showed love for one another. Thank You JOC for caring. God Bless You and your Ministry.
Trust and Believe
Regina L says: 
It was something if I tell you about it and you need help you would have to see for yourself. God has provided a program to get my family and I into a home. And we will appreciate our own home and start living together as a family again thank u God for this program we won't be homeless for long.
