HOPE Atlanta provides a comprehensive approach to address homelessness and provide solutions that promote lifelong stability.
Founded in 1900 by women concerned for women, children, and elderly people arriving to the growing city without means to support themselves, the Atlanta Women's Missionary Association soon aligned itself with the international Travelers Aid movement and operated from the city’s train depot, bus stations, and airport. As needs changed, Traveler’s Aid was realigned as HOPE Atlanta to reflect the expansion of programs and locations to provide comprehensive services for those without shelter.
HOPE Atlanta is working diligently on serving some of the most vulnerable in our community, connecting individuals and families experiencing homelessness with critical housing and support services to get them on a path towards self-sufficiency. Their programs and locations provide comprehensive services for those without shelter and works with individuals and families who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness with Housing, Outreach, Prevention, and Emergency Services. Last year, HOPE Atlanta served over 8,500 individuals in 28 Metro-Atlanta counties and has been operating for 120 years.
