The development of the “Blueprint to End Homelessness in Atlanta in Ten Years” was due to the work of a 16 member Commission on Homelessness. The Commission adopted the Continuum of Care, with the addition of a “prevention” component and an overarching “systems” element, to frame the goals and strategies to alleviate the homelessness in the city of Atlanta. The Components of the Continuum of Care Homeless System consist of outreach and intake assessment, emergency shelter, transitional housing, supportive services, permanent supportive housing, and permanent housing. The Commission also developed an Action Plan which includes recommended strategies for the Continuum of Care, action steps, costs, timetables, and measurable results.
