Who We Are

Your Description

The House of Joy is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization registered with the Secretary of State under the umbrella of Love in Action Outreach Ministries and is focused on serving homeless women and homeless mothers with dependent children in Gwinnett County and surrounding areas who need emergency shelter and crisis intervention services.

“As a faith-based organization grounded in Christian principles, we are sensitive to both the physical and emotional needs of displaced families. Our goal is to share the unconditional love of God with our guests in a compassionate, respectful and empowering way,” says House of Joy founder and president Bobbi Pack. “The House of Joy will meet their emergency housing needs and provide an immediate support system through a team of volunteers and staff members in a safe, clean environment.”

House of Joy’s mission is to provide women and children in crisis with immediate assistance, encouragement and hope. The goal is to motivate and prepare our guest families to embrace life and return to their communities and leave a path of encouragement, strength and faith for others to follow. House of Joy follows a holistic ministry model designed to serve the whole person—the heart, mind, body and soul. For this reason, a wide variety of services are available to guests.
