Need

We all have the same needs: safety, shelter, food, a healthy supportive community and an ongoing sense of home and family. But today in Georgia:

  • More than 500,000 children live in poverty stricken families.
  • More than 60,000  children experience homelessness.
  • The average age of a homeless person is 9 years old.
  • 87% of homeless families say the lack of affordable housing is the primary cause of their homelessness.
  • Domestic Violence is the second most frequently stated cause of homelessness.
  • Currently the high school graduation rate for homeless children is less than 25%.
