Home For Good

Home for Good, A program of United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley, functions as the bridge amongst service providers, as well as between services providers and clients. Home for Good assures the efficient and effective use of a collaborative system to move individuals or families from homelessness to permanent, stable housing.

Home For Good was charged with implementing the City’s Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness. The ten year plan contains seven strategic initiatives for establishing long-term, sustainable solutions for reducing and ending homelessness. Our goal is to make homelessness rare, brief, and a one-time occurrence.

Priority areas of focus:

  • Sufficient Resources
    • Increased access to affordable and permanent supportive housing
    • Bringing together philanthropy and public funders with the goal of ensuring that all housing and service needs are addressed.
  • Coordinated Entry System
    • Increased collaborative efforts among service and system providers

Who is homeless?

Anyone not having a permanent place to live or living in a place not intended to be permanent (shelter, motel, car, abandoned buildings). 

How do we end homelessness? 

Coordinate our community’s resources, utilize nationally recognized best practices and focus on housing as the solution. By joining housing and services we will be able to transition people out of homelessness permanently.

Why do we need to end homelessness?

Safe, affordable, and decent housing helps build strong, healthy communities by improving the safety of neighborhoods, beautifying city blocks with new and rehabilitated properties and increasing or stabilizing property values. It is also very cost-effective – lessening the amount of tax dollars needed to combat the effect of homelessness.
