About the Georgia Campaign to End Child Homelessness
The Georgia Campaign to End Child Homelessness seeks to galvanize the public and political will necessary to end this crisis. Based on the belief that it is unacceptable for any child to be homeless for even one night, the Georgia Campaign to End Child Homelessness is a call to action with the following goals:
Increase public awareness of the scope and impact of homelessness on children and families
Inform state and local policies and plans to better address the needs of homeless children and families
Improve program design and service delivery to effectively meet the unique needs of homeless children and families
The Georgia Campaign connects families, communities, service providers, advocates, policymakers, elected officials, and the media to address child and family homelessness through an array of coordinated local and state-based efforts. The Georgia Campaign to End Child Homelessness is an initiative of the Campaign to End Child Homelessness at The National Center on Family Homelessness in partnership with Georgia Alliance To End Homelessness, Inc.
