About WinShape Homes

Our Story

Chick-fil-A Founder S. Truett Cathy founded WinShape Homes in 1987 as a way to provide nurturing homes to children who are in need of a stable family environment. Winshape Homes was Truett's heart and passion. More than 30 years later the Cathy family remains committed to supporting our mission.

Truett & Jeannette Cathy

Founder of Chick-fil-A & WinShape Homes


For 30 years our Group Care program existed to fulfill Truett’s vision. Founded on Christ-centered principles, our homes are designed to cultivate healthy, long-term relationships for the children we serve. WinShape Homes’ Group Care program provides placements in a large family home setting, which allows sibling groups that might otherwise be separated to remain together. The children we serve are given consistent attention and care on physical, spiritual, and emotional levels to ensure their needs are thoroughly and individually met. From tutoring to professional counseling to medical care, each child is cared for uniquely. Currently, we have 12 homes spread across three different states.

In 2017 we launched our Foster Care program which focuses on traditional foster homes. Today, there are more than 15,000 children in Georgia’s foster care system alone. By training parents to provide foster care in their own homes, we believe we can help address this need on a larger scale. Our Foster Care program provides temporary homes for foster children in Georgia, as well as long-term homes to children who need permanent placement. We also provide for our foster parents through training, resource building, and additional family supports.

The heart of WinShape Homes is to provide a loving family for each child. WinShape Homes Group Care program employs full-time house parents who care for the children in one of our 12 homes and in our Foster Care program we partner with Church’s to find parents who share our vision. All of our parents believe that is it God’s calling on their lives to serve as role models and love the children placed in their care. There is a strong culture of commitment among our families, both to the children and to WinShape Homes’ mission.


Christ-centered, family-oriented, and dedicated to the development of the whole child.

Christ-Centered

WinShape Homes exists as an extension of Jesus Christ by connecting children in need with families who can meet those needs.

Family-oriented

Each of our families is committed to helping children feel a sense of safety and belonging, investing in them, and showing them love for whatever length of time the child is in their home.

Dedicated to Development

WinShape Homes is dedicated to developing children physically, emotionally and spiritually. We believe that children grow and prosper best within a home where can learn about God, themselves, others, their family and life as a whole.



“This is not us; it’s about Jesus... It’s what He cares about, and it’s how we live out our faith. It’s a way to tangibly live out our belief that we are called to care for foster children."

"We have the freedom to get to know our children’s classmates through volunteer coaching, school functions and church roles as a typical parent does. This sets us a part from similar ministries."
