“This is a pivotal time for the Atlanta community as there are so many people coming together in agreement to enact our strategic plan to end homelessness in Atlanta. By creating a united and coordinated crisis response system across metro Atlanta, we are poised to make homelessness rare, brief and nonrecurring.”
