ReStart320 was created in 2016 as House of Luke. Our organization was revamped and renamed as ReStart320 in 2017 when we purchased a 10,000 SF building 561 West Whitehall Avenue in downtown Atlanta as a low barrier emergency homeless shelter.
Our low barrier shelter closed in 2020 due to community opposition, as well as, struggles with the efforts to manage a 24/7 emergency and day shelter with a totally volunteer staff and leadership.
During 2021 and 2022 we redefined our mission to focus on homeless veterans and returning citizens being release from the Georgia prison system.
ReStart is a non-profit 501C3 with a two-fold mission. Provide our country’s homeless military veterans housing, and provide a hand up to returning citizens incarcerated within the Georgia Correctional Prison System, to restart their lives and become contributing members of their community.
