Georgia Emergency Shelters Take on the Shelter Challenge
by Anna Blasco
We spent the last few months providing technical assistance to emergency shelters all over Georgia. Our goal was to help them lower barriers in order to make it easier for people to enter shelter — especially for those with nowhere else to go — and develop housing-focused services to make it easier for people to leave shelter and return to permanent housing. We have now kicked off the #GAShelterChallenge – a 90-day push to house as many people as quickly as possible.

Throughout our RRH Works campaign, we have heard about the five key strategies for advancing the intervention discussed at the Alliance’s Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) Leadership Summit held in Sept. 2016. Today we are making commitments to scale up RRH in our new document, Rapid Re-Housing Leadership Summit: What We Learned. Did you miss some of the resources during our RRH Works campaign? Here is a wrap-up of the blogs and resources we released during the campaign.
