Southeast Georgia and Chatham County transitional housing programs.

Residents of southeast Georgia have access to several low income, transitional housing programs. The focus of the non-profits is on supporting families in Savannah and Chatham County, however resources are available across the entire region. Families, children, and the homeless are the main beneficiaries of the numerous housing programs.

The specific assistance provided by each agency will vary based on many factors, including funding levels, demand, and location. In general, the organizations will offer people both a place to stay over the short term and also longer term support and case management. This will generally include access to financial literacy, job training, and basic needs like a free meal.

However the main objective of each unit is to ensure people are able to find and also pay for a new, permanent home in the region. So case managers will work with a homeless or recently evicted individual to help them locate a new, low income home or apartment in Chatham County or another area. You can also explore potential financial assistance for paying costs such as security deposits or first months rent.
