Children's Restoration Network (CRN) was founded in 1993 on the belief that every child deserves a childhood. The mission of CRN is to offer hope and support, enabling children and their mothers to break the cycle of homelessness by empowering them to become part of mainstream society as active productive citizens through programs and special events designated to address their spiritual, emotional, and physical needs.
Each year we conduct programs and special events to provide a broad range of positive experiences for over 6,000 children residing in more than 134 shelters and group homes located in 21 metro Atlanta counties. CRN believes that education is the key to breaking the vicious cycle of homelessness. Celebrate theChildren 2016 benefits CRN’s educational programs collectively known as “HeadSmart.” These programs include the Back 2 School Readiness Campaign, Project One on One Mentoring Program, and New Hope Scholarship Fund. For more information regarding Headsmart and other programs and events, please return to CRN's Home Page.

Children’s Restoration Network was founded in 1993 by Jim Cox and Cliff Kinsey. Children and women with children are the fastest growing segments of the homeless population, meaning many children are finding themselves without the safety and comfort of a consistent home. Few agencies address the needs of this group. That is what motivated Jim and Cliff to begin working with a shelter that housed women and children in metro Atlanta. Each year since, our organization has added to the number of children and mothers served.
CRN has always worked hard to ensure a great portion of donations go directly to the children and mothers we serve. In 2015, more than 91 percent of donations went directly into programs. Over the past 23 years, CRN has now touched the lives of over 56,000 homeless children and 15,000 adult women.
