HOPE Atlanta is proud to be one of the premiere social service agencies in Metropolitan Atlanta providing a safety net for low-income travelers, newcomers and residents in crisis. Only a handful of other social service agencies have had the longevity (111 years) and impact that Hope Atlanta has had in Metropolitan Atlanta, providing assistance (i.e., emergency shelter, food, transportation and counseling) to more than 15,00 people annually and over one million individuals since its inception in 1900.
United Way of Greater Atlanta’s mission is to “Engage all segments of our community to drive sustainable change in education, income, health and homelessness, while continuing to address urgent and basic human care.”
The Georgia Department of Veterans Affairs is committed to ending homelessness among Veterans. The DVA’s focus is threefold:
– Conducting coordinated outreach to proactively seek out Veterans in need of assistance.
– Connecting homeless and at-risk Veterans with housing solutions, health care, community employment services and other required supports.
– Collaborating with federal, state and local agencies; employers; housing providers; faith-based and community nonprofits; and others to expand employment and affordable housing options for Veterans exiting homelessness.
