Partners for Homehttps://partnersforhome.org
Partners for HOME brings public and private resources together to create and implement a collective strategic plan to making homelessness in Atlanta rare, brief and nonrecurring.
In June 2013, the Atlanta City Council approved the creation of a new nonprofit to manage the Atlanta continuum of care for homeless services. In 2014, Partners for HOME incorporated and opened its offices with the mandate to administer the local HUD CoC grant and lead the City’s coordinated strategy on homelessness, as set forth by Atlanta’s Continuum of Care Governing Council and member agencies. 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. Given the tremendous support from civil, corporate, philanthropic, and faith partners, creating an independent agency to steward resources with accountability and transparency was celebrated as a crucial next step in Atlanta’s effort to prevent and end homelessness.
