At Reside GA we encourage and promote advocacy for those experiencing homelessness in Metropolitan Atlanta communities. Our goal is to facilitate a coordinated effort with a community's residents, organizations, businesses and local city governments and officials to end homelessness in their community. Through advocacy we seek to Engage, Converse and Organize.
Maintain contact with local, city, county and state officials to inform them of the needs of the communities we serve and of our efforts to get them the assistance they need to address homelessness in their community.
Build trust through outreach to those without shelter, gather information about their lives to better understand their needs beyond shelter and to keep them informed of the issues the community has with their presence. Most importantly we need to involve them in any plans of action designed to assist them.
To end homelessness in Metropolitan Atlanta communities we partner with all groups affected by homelessness. We collaborate with other nonprofits, and we meet with residents, neighborhood associations, community businesses and civic organizations to discuss the issues that concern them the most. By identifying those issues together and through action planning, we can develop viable solutions to eliminate homelessness in their community.
