JONESBORO — HomeAid Atlanta and the House of Dawn celebrated the opening of a new home for young mothers on Sept. 14 with a virtual ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The newly built 5,000-square-foot home, named Second Chance, is geared toward mothers ages 13-19. House of Dawn, a Jonesboro nonprofit organization, provides “a stable, loving home and life skills program for expectant and young mothers at risk for homelessness and abuse.”

HomeAid builder captain Knight Homes led construction of the new house.

“It’s been a pleasure to help build a house that’s going to be a safe place for these girls to call home and have a second chance at a wonderful life,” said Whitney Fitzgerald, Second Chance home project manager.
