The Atlanta CoC partners with landlords and property managers to make rental units available to individuals and families impacted by homelessness. Through Open Doors, owners and managers can designate their property for households in need — helping to end homelessness in the City of Atlanta and putting households on the path to self-sufficiency. Open Doors is a program sponsored by the Atlanta Real Estate Collaborative, Enterprise Community Partners and Project Community Connections, Inc.
At Partners for HOME, we challenge the community to think differently about ending homelessness in Atlanta. Support from the community helps Partners for HOME to align collective resources across the city and use strategic planning to identify unmet needs and help households find the path to home.

The Atlanta CoC conducts the Point In Time (PIT) Homeless Count annually in January. The Count is crucial for tracking the success of local efforts to end homelessness in Atlanta and essential for planning future efforts. Each year approximately 300 volunteers spend one week conducting surveys and gathering data. In addition to volunteers, we rely on assistance from homeless service providers to serve as Team Leaders.
We have modified our PIT Count needs due to the pandemic.
