The Drake House: North Fulton Housing - Continuum of Care
The Drake House works with many agencies to provide programs and services to prevent homelessness, provide emergency/ short-term crisis, transitional and permanent housing solutions. The process begins with:
- Homelessness Prevention: Rental and utility assistance, food, hotel vouchers, etc.
- Emergency/ Short-Term Housing: Temporary Housing (90-180 days) often with case management, education, and career service
- Transitional and Permanent Housing: Temporary and permanent supportive apartments, sliding scale rent, some case management; or permanent housing with a flat rate or subsidized rent and down payment assistance
Clients are referred to The Drake House after accessing the “branch” of services of Homelessness Prevention. They may also be referred by a social worker in the Fulton County School system or other partner agency along the “branch” of the North Fulton Continuum of Care.
The average Drake House mother is 38 years old, she has 2 kids, and a post high school education. A little more than half of our mothers are employed when entering our program and 90% are employed when they exit. The average savings at exit it just over $1,200.
Our Current Needs:
Week of 7/17/17
Now that school is out, our food pantry is VERY low. Many of our families receive free and reduced breakfast and lunch during the school year. Without this support, The Drake House will provision them with MORE breakfast and lunch items than usual. Please consider picking up extra on your trip to the grocery store this summer.
Thank you for your support and care for homeless mothers and children during their stay at The Drake House.
