Intown operates five programs to meet the needs of homeless and hungry neighbors in our community.
The heart of our work is building a strong community through relationships and mutually transformed lives—our lives and the lives of our neighbors.
As many of our neighbors continue to struggle in poverty, we have seen a continued rise in need for our services. Our five programs—Food Pantry, Food Co-ops, Clothing Closet, homeless Outreach, and Heading Home—served 1,200 unique individuals in 2015, a 24% increase from the previous year.
We are proud of the work we have done. And more work remains. Chronic homelessness continues to affect too many people. The average homeless person who dies on the streets in Atlanta is 49 years old. We have faith that our community will continue to serve each other.
