House of Dawn

House of Dawn (HOD) provides a stable, loving home for young mothers and their children at risk for homelessness and abuse, as well as educational opportunities and the life training skills to become independent, self-supporting women.

Doug Cotter and his team are proud to be part of the House of Dawn renovation projects to help build new lives for young and expectant mothers experiencing homelessness.

Helping Build New Lives

The project, designed to help build new lives for young and expectant mothers experiencing homelessness, is a renovation of the Transitional Housing Program’s two duplexes. Once complete, the renovation will have added a new bathroom to four units, doubling the program's capacity, from eight mothers and babies to 16, who will call House of Dawn home as they work toward the goal of self-sufficiency.

Builder Capitain

Doug Cotter serves as HomeAid Atlanta's volunteer Builder Captain for renovations at House of Dawn's Transitional Housing Program facilities. The Transitional Housing program serves young mothers ages 18-24 and their children, who need supportive housing assistance for up to two years.



Ground Breaking

During the groundbreaking ceremony, Builder Captain Doug Cotter remarked, “I'm very honored and proud to be participating with HomeAid and House of Dawn on this project. Our passion is to provide housing for families, and this project allows us to do it at a different level, providing housing for mothers and children in need."

Hardest Job in the World

Builder Capitain Doug Cotter on being a a single mother: "I think it is the hardest job in the world, and we’re here to make it easier. It’s a great honor to follow my passion and give back to the community to help these young mothers and their children.”
