Midtown Atlanta is known as one of the city’s most thriving areas, but if you’ve spent any time in the district, you’ve likely come across someone experiencing homelessness. Homelessness ranked among the top five most pressing issues facing Midtown in our most recent Midtown Community Survey (fall 2022). It's natural to ask, “why doesn't somebody do something to change this?"  

In Atlanta, the work to combat homelessness is spread across many different groups, including the faith community, business leaders, nonprofits, public safety and the City of Atlanta. We spoke with several experts on the ground working to solve this citywide issue to find out what they're doing, how it's going and what's next.
