Rome News-Tribune: Community Solutions and Partners for Home unite to help house homeless Atlanta veterans

March 30, 2021

Two organizations are uniting to help veterans experiencing homelessness in southwest Atlanta.

In a March 29 news release, Community Solutions, a New York-based nonprofit aiming to end homelessness nationwide, and Partners for Home, a nonprofit within the city of Atlanta whose goal is to stop homelessness in the city, announced the $12 million purchase of a 132-unit apartment building to provide affordable housing for veterans experiencing homelessness.

Called Centra Villa, it’s located a few miles from the Fort McPherson VA (Veterans Affairs) Clinic, offering its tenants not only easy access to medical services and other community resources but also long-term, permanent housing.
