How to Get Help

CaringWorks is one of the largest providers of supportive housing in the metropolitan Atlanta area, serving hundreds of individuals and families each year. Working in partnership with a community of service providers, we share a common goal of ending homelessness, one person at a time.

If you are homeless and need assistance, the first step is to register with the Coordinated Entry System in the area you have lived or are currently living. The systems typically have several access points. You can find them via phone or website.

Access to Coordinated Entry by Phone

Simply dial 211 on your phone to speak with a live representative from the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta. They can help you find the most convenient place to register in the system.

Outside of metro Atlanta, the State’s Toll-Free Hotline is:
