Fulton County Seeks Partner for Homeless Work

Fulton County Seeks Non-Profit Partner to Lead Phase II of its Homeless Entry Work

The Fulton County Department of Community Development, Homeless Division

The Fulton County Department of Community Development (DCD) and Fulton County Continuum of Care is seeking to partner with a nonprofit that will serve as the lead agency of Phase II of its county-wide homeless Coordinated Entry program.

The lead agency will work with Fulton County and the CoC to enhance the operations of the County’s CE work to include the sustainment and expansion of community collaborations with affordable housing providers, municipalities, and nonprofits.

“We are excited about Phase II and are looking forward to increasing the County’s ability to provide collective services that are needed to prevent individuals from entering homelessness, move them out of homelessness, and most importantly, prevent them from returning to homelessness,” said Fulton County Deputy Chief Operating Officer, Health & Human Services Dr. Pamela Roshell.

The CE effort is in response to the coordination of a crisis response system’s resources that allows users to make informed decisions regarding housing and service interventions that will aid in swiftly ending their homelessness. With this in mind, the Department of Community Development will select one agency to lead Phase II of its countywide CE work.
