About Us

On any given day, over 4,000 Georgia residents face homelessness. Of these, nearly 40% are families with school-aged children.

For over 30 years, Initiative has helped struggling families in metro Atlanta address the root causes of homelessness and pave the way for a brighter future. Our three programs—homeless services, housing, and employment—provide comprehensive solutions for families to build the foundation for permanent self-sufficiency. With a dedicated team of professionals, our clients develop the skills and confidence to manage their lives and households and to ensure that their children thrive.

Initiative is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization operating in metro Atlanta since 1990.

Initiative provides safe, permanent affordable housing, holistic social services, employment, and job training to transform the lives of homeless and low-income families.
