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.

Georgia's recovery community organization development project: For the past six years, Georgia Council on Substance Abuse (GCSA) has been working in partnership with Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network and Georgia's Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities to walk along side communities in varying stages of development of recovery community organizations (RCOs). RCO's celebrate multiple pathways to recovery while providing support to people in or seeking recovery from substance use disorder as well as friends, family, and allies. Click here to locate an RCO or Peer Support, Wellness and Respite Center:
