Fulton County Georgia low income and transitional housing.

Families facing imminent eviction in Fulton County Georgia, or those that are currently homeless, can receive assistance from a number of transitional housing programs. There are also several shelters scattered throughout the greater Atlanta region. The resources provide residents both a short term place to stay and also access to longer term case management and self-sufficiency.

While some of the housing assistance programs focus on a certain client, such as veterans or single parents, others are available to anyone who needs help. Case managers will often assist clients in finding safe, affordable, low income homes or apartments to live in. They can also direct individuals to rental or security deposit programs to help them pay for their new unit.

If you are facing imminent eviction or are currently homeless in Fulton County, then look into one or more of these short term, transitional housing programs in the region. Many low income and working poor families benefit from these resources.
