Homelessness... It's more complicated than just a matter of choice.
The Georgia¬†Alliance ¬†to End Homelessness envisions a humane end to homelessness in the state of Georgia.¬†The Georgia Alliance was founded in 1989 under the name of the Georgia Coalition To End Homelessness by a group of dedicated homeless advocates who saw the need to help those individuals who had no other place to turn. Through collaborations and partnerships with other concerned individuals and organizations, We have grown to include over¬†1100 service providers, organizations, and individuals throughout the state. For more than¬†10 years, the Georgia¬†Alliance ¬†to End Homelessness has been helping individuals identify and obtain permanent and transitional housing, find emergency shelter and employment, and obtain the education necessary to become self-sufficient.
Mission and Vision
The Georgia Alliance To End Homelessness¬†is a statewide network committed to fostering strategic initiatives to build a collaborative response to the needs of homeless persons in Georgia. This vision will be achieved by:
Identifying and advocating for immediate and long term solutions to homelessness, effective housing production, and policy at the state, local and national levels.
Informing and raising awareness of the public and policy makers about homelessness and Georgia‚Äôs housing needs.
Fostering communication, building local coalitions and developing collaborative and inclusive partnerships among homeless service providers, advocates for affordable and fair housing, tenants rights advocates, low income and homeless people, funding sources and government officials.
Advocating for identifying the availability of funding, training and technical assistance.
Even with all this support there is still much that needs to be done. Shelters in Georgia currently can only house about 50% of homeless individuals and families. As long as there is a shortage of jobs and affordable housing there will be homelessness. This is not to say that it is a hopeless cause.
Just last year the Georgia Alliance and its regional offices:
Placed over 3000 homeless individuals into temporary shelters until placement with a housing provider could be arranged.
Referred more than 51,000 homeless or at risk individuals to service providers for assistance.
Made 14,640 trips for homeless individuals with transportation needs to shelter, jobs, training, and childcare.
These are just some of the steps taken by the Georgia¬†Alliance¬†to End Homelessness to eradicate homelessness throughout the state. We appreciate your concern for the plight of homeless individuals in Georgia and hope that this web site will become your home for information on homeless issues. We invite you to consider membership in the Georgia¬†Alliance¬†to End Homelessness because homelessness is more complicated than just a matter of choice. Please take time to read the story of a typical homeless individual.
