Partners for HOME’s governance structure was determined to be the best fit for Atlanta because it provides more flexibility for layering public and private resources.
Creating Partners For HOME to steward resources with accountability and transparency was celebrated as a crucial next step in Atlanta’s effort to prevent and end homelessness.
WHY GET INVOLVED?
By creating a united and coordinated crisis response system across metro Atlanta, we are poised to make homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring.
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
BECOME A MEMBER
The Atlanta Continuum of Care is made up of over 100 participating service providers and stakeholders throughout the city. The membership is organized by a Governing Council, a voluntary policy making body chartered by the City of Atlanta with approvals sanctioned by the membership in accordance with all applicable laws.
While all organizations fighting homelessness in Atlanta are automatically a part of the Atlanta CoC, active partners are those that have submitted the form below, agreeing to the CoC’s goals and designating a voting representative to the CoC. Active partners are voting members and qualify to be part of CoC grant proposals.
Point In Time (PIT) Homeless Count – January 27, 2020
The Atlanta Continuum of Care will conduct the Point In Time (PIT) Homeless Count on January 27, 2020. The homeless count is crucial for tracking the success of local efforts to end homelessness in Atlanta and essential for planning future efforts.
We will need about 300 volunteers throughout the week to conduct surveys. In addition to general volunteers, we will need help from our dedicated homeless service providers to serve as Team Leaders. More information on these opportunities will be posted.

At Partners for HOME, we challenge the community to think differently about ending homelessness in Atlanta. Using innovative best-practices, we align collective resources across the city and use strategic planning to identify unmet needs.

Partners for HOME is a public-private partnership operating as a 501(c)3. All donations are tax deductible.
To end homelessness as quickly as possible, the Atlanta Homeless Continuum of Care has a real need for landlords and property managers to make more rental units available especially to those with high barriers.
To accomplish this, the CoC works with Open Doors, a program sponsored by the Atlanta Real Estate Collaborative, Enterprise Community Partners, and Project Community Connections, Inc.
