"We open doors to overcome and prevent homelessness."

Central OAC seeks to be a passionate and well-respected voice in the community on behalf of the homeless and is committed to collaborating with area service providers to significantly reduce the risk and prevalence of homelessness in Atlanta.
Central OAC works to overcome barriers to employment, housing and health care for the homeless and near homeless in the greater Metro Atlanta area in two ways:

(1) Outreach: serving guests one-on-one, addressing critical basic needs, and offering innovative, transformational services that empower them to become self-sufficient with a stable income and permanent, affordable housing; and
(2) Advocacy: serving as a crucial voice for and with people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, challenging public policies and practices that contribute to or bolster homelessness in Atlanta.

Monday - Friday 9:00am - 12:30pm,
also Wednesday 2:00pm - 4:00pm
