The more than 200 people currently living at the Peachtree-Pine homeless shelter in downtown Atlanta will not be have to find a new place to go once the building’s new owners take over, according to a plan recently presented during an online forum. The plan calls for the embattled shelter to transfer to the non-profit group, Central Atlanta Progress.
City leaders laid out a plan on Aug. 22 for the future to accommodate those living at the shelter, according to a report by WSBTV.
During an online forum, hosted by Atlanta City Councilman Kwanzaa Hall, it was announced the Regional Commission on Homelessness will begin a 45 to 60 day “transition process” where residents will be assessed and will work with community partners to find them suitable places to live.
Hall said a new commission will interview residents during the transition process.
