The GSHA seeks to advance the creation and preservation of quality supportive housing in Georgia and ensure sufficient resources for this effort through education and advocacy.
  

Our Vision:   A Georgia where individuals with disabilities have the housing and supports they choose in order to thrive.
  
The GSHA does not operate any housing programs and we do not directly aid or refer people in need of housing. But we're happy to offer these resources as a starting point for people looking for housing options:
