City Hall Seeks Your Input: City of Atlanta Homeless Survey

June 15,2012

As recently announced by Mayor Kasim Reed, the City of Atlanta is undertaking an effort to significantly reduce street homelessness, in partnership with our broader community of agencies, providers, community leaders and citizens. As a first step - with the help of Emory University, Georgia Tech University, Clark Atlanta University and Georgia State University - City Hall is gathering information on the current state of homelessness in Atlanta.  To get an accurate, comprehensive view, the City needs your help and participation in completing the following survey.

The survey asks questions about the populations served, the needs they present, the capacity to meet those needs, and the services delivered, as well as your perceptions of homelessness services.  The person(s) completing the survey should be someone with knowledge of homeless issues in Atlanta.  Our aim is to gather a broad perspective from the community including providers, advocates, residents and stakeholders from across the City of Atlanta and DeKalb and Fulton County. We are especially interested in responses from people with experience living in the City of Atlanta and/or interacting with Atlanta's street homeless population.  

Your  input is vitally important to this data collection effort.  All responses will be confidential and anonymous - we will not collect identifying information such as your name, email address or IP address.

The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete, and all questions are optional.   Please submit your responses by Friday, June 29.  To complete the survey, click here:
