City wants your input on homelessness

Atlanta residents and area homeless care providers with 20 minutes to spare should direct their attention to this here online survey.

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 we are gathering information on the current services for the homeless in Atlanta. To get an accurate, comprehensive view, we need your help and participation in completing the following survey.

This survey asks about the populations served, the needs they present, the capacity to meet those needs, and the services delivered, as well as perceptions of homelessness services. In addition, we would like to understand both the challenges and opportunities relating to collaboration among service providers.

City officials say that survey respondents should be knowledgable about homeless issues in Atlanta. And they're particularly interested in hearing from people with experience "living in the City of Atlanta and/or interacting with Atlanta's street homeless population." Judging from some of your comments, that seems to include a lot of you.

Don't fret if you don't have an opinion on a certain topic, as the questions are optional. The deadline to respond the survey is Friday, Aug. 3.
