What is the procedure for placing a child in a WinShape Home?
You may fill out the online application and send it in or call WinShape Homes at 404-684-8741. We will discuss the situation and the child’s behavior and determine if we are an appropriate placement. We can also give you referrals to other programs if we are not the appropriate place. WinShape requires a recent psychological evaluation for each child and an interview with the child with our house parents, Human Services Professional (HSP) and/or Director. We also do a weekend visit before we make a permanent placement.
