Inform your medical, mental health, and other service providers that you are homeless /unsheltered or have other housing challenges. They often have access to or are aware of resources and may be able to submit a referral on your behalf.  

Individuals and families needing emergency and transitional housing can contact the Garden of Gethsemane Homeless Shelter during normal office hours: Monday - Friday from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm to inquire if any beds are available.

 

Homeless Individuals are encouraged to contact the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, Continuum of Care Program Manager, Michael Thomas, at 844-249-8367 coc@dca.ga.gov for additional assistance.
