About WinShape Homes

Our Story

With a vision and belief that all children deserve to feel loved and well-cared for, Chick-fil-A Founder S. Truett Cathy and his wife, Jeannette, established WinShape Homes over 30 years ago. Today, we’ve placed hundreds of children in need with families who are guided by Christ to care, and continue to support church ministries in establishing foster programs. WinShape families rely on an unparalleled network of care designed to ensure that children are restored in mind, body and spirit.

Founder of Chick-fil-A & WinShape Homes


For 30 years, WinShape Homes was comprised only of our Group Care program. Founded on Christ-centered principles, these homes were designed to cultivate healthy, long-term relationships for the children we serve. Today, Group Care at WinShape Homes keeps family bonds strong while ensuring that children in need are afforded the space and structure to flourish. Within the walls of a home filled with a large, loving family, these children receive bountiful support, expert care and room to grow.

In 2017 we launched our Foster Care program, which focuses on traditional foster care homes and services. By training parents to provide foster care in their own homes, we believe we can help address Georgia’s foster care crisis 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 know fostering is an intense call, and those who answer need unwavering support. That’s why the Foster Care Program at WinShape Homes goes above and beyond to shepherd those parents through the process. A child’s success starts with foster parents who are supported at every turn. Whether they need homework help or an extra set of hands to prepare dinner, our unparalleled level of care starts in our partner churches and extends throughout our parents’ communities, ensuring they’re well-equipped to help a child flourish and find a way home.


Parents in WinShape Homes’ Group care and Foster care programs receive unlimited support so they can give hurting children an unparalleled level of care. Our method is deliberate, based in the Christian faith and proven with time-tested outcomes that transform the lives of children in need.



“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."
