HOPE Atlanta Programs & Services

Our holistic approach includes Housing, Hunger, Outreach, Prevention, and Emergency Services.

Who We Serve

We provide individualized assistance, resources, and advocacy for people experiencing (or at risk of experiencing) homelessness and hunger across 28 Georgia counties with special resources for veterans and their families.

When we met John and Tonya, they’d been trapped in a cycle of homelessness for more than 3 years.
Now that they’ve got their own apartment, the couple can focus on pursuing employment and hobbies. Instead of wondering where their next meal will come from, they plan on hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year.


A housing-first approach.

Stable housing is paramount to a person’s ability to thrive. For each client we serve, our priority is securing housing—both temporary and more permanent solutions.

Permanent Supportive Housing

Many clients, including those with disabilities or substance abuse issues, need ongoing support after being placed in permanent housing. We provide that support system, assisting with everything from medical appointment transportation to grocery shopping and learning to budget.

Special Needs Housing

HIV/AIDS cases have continued to spike in Atlanta, particularly among homeless communities. Our dedicated Special Needs Housing team ensures that this population’s needs are met.


Some see panhandlers. We see people.

We meet people experiencing homelessness where they are, even when it means venturing to places others won’t (like homeless encampments). Our message is simple: we’re here for you.

COVID-19 Outreach

Amid the pandemic, we’ve teamed up with government agencies, healthcare providers and other community partners to educate, screen and test people experiencing homelessness. We’ve also moved hundreds of seniors and medically-vulnerable people to safety within the Healthy Hotels. Learn More  

Airport and MARTA Outreach 

The airport and MARTA stations are where many unsheltered people seek refuge from the elements. Our outreach teams are there daily to offer assistance and hygiene/snack bags. Learn More about our MARTA partnership here

Sometimes, we all need a shoulder to lean on. That was the case for Army veteran Clifford and his daughter, who found themselves stranded without means after coming to Atlanta seeking a fresh start. We stepped in to make that “fresh start” a reality.


Addressing the root causes of homelessness.

For every person you see living on the street, there are hundreds more at risk of falling homeless—barely scraping by, or living in motels or cars. We’re here to assist people before they end up on the streets, preventing homelessness from occurring (or recurring).

Rental Assistance and Eviction Prevention

We assist families nearing crisis with rent and utilities to help keep roofs over their heads.

Supportive Services for Veteran Families

We help veterans across 30 counties who are experiencing or at-risk of homelessness. Connecting veterans to resources like rapid rehousing, rental assistance, childcare support, and legal services, our case managers work 1-1 with veterans to meet their individual needs and reclaim their self-sufficiency.

Emergency Services

For many, a bit of bad luck can spell disaster.

A missed paycheck. A health crisis. A violent storm. For many, hard times can easily lead to homelessness. We’re here when they need a shoulder to lean on.

Rapid Re-Housing

When someone experiencing homelessness reaches out, our goal is to get them off the streets as quickly as possible. We help cover rent, security deposits and moving costs to get them back on their feet.

Reunification Program 

We help stranded people without means return to their home communities and support systems, covering transportation costs and coordinating with loved ones.
