HOPE Atlanta provides the most comprehensive approach to tackling homelessness in our Atlanta region. We uncover why individuals fall into a distressed state and how to connect them to the right service and support to get back on their feet again. By narrowing in on four key areas, HOPE Atlanta is helping more people out of the cycle of homelessness and on to a path of a stable, healthy life.

  • Housing – offers supportive, transitional and permanent housing along with intensive case management to families, victims of domestic violence, grandparents raising grandchildren, individuals living with HIV/AIDS, the chronically homeless, veterans and individuals with disabilities.
  • Outreach – assists unsheltered persons by meeting them where they are, ensuring they access any treatment they need (mental illness, physical health, substance abuse), and then placing them in housing coupled with case management.
  • Prevention – provides case management, crisis counseling, information and referral, employment assistance, and financial assistance to individuals who need a temporary boost to move beyond a current crisis and prevent eviction or homelessness, including veterans’ assistance.
  • Emergency Services – provides emergency housing as well as transportation assistance and resettlement services for homeless individuals and families and women who have fled domestic violence.

HOPE Atlanta recognizes that we cannot tackle the tremendous issue of homelessness in our region on our own.  We work closely with other nonprofits and partners to provide a continuum of care for clients leading to a greater success rate for those experiencing crisis.  This includes working with MercyCare for healthcare services, First Step Staffing for employment training and placement, Georgia Law Center for the Homeless for legal assistance, Columbia Residential for on-site case management to residents, the Veterans Administration for housing services for homeless veterans, and many more.
