ReStart320’s History

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’s Mission Statement

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.
