Eviction and Homelessness prevention programs in Metro Atlanta provide a continuum of services that address some of the barriers to housing stability that can lead to homelessness. You may qualify for financial assistance to help pay past-due rental arrears, utility assistance to prevent service interruption, or legal aid to help during eviction proceedings to prevent eviction or reverse wrongful evictions.

Programs vary from agency to agency, some may require that you have an eviction notice or be in court. Eviction Prevention programs are designed to help you become stably housed long-term. This may be achieved through relocation, credit counseling, security and utility deposit assistance, or other supportive programs.
