Our top priority is to keep our community as informed about affordable housing issues as we possibly can.
And we are hearing more and more people ask us where they can go to learn more about affordable housing, so we figured we’d provide a few resources where you can go to learn more about affordable housing in our region.

North Fulton Poverty Task Force
This group has been meeting for about 3 years. They hold meetings, open to the public, periodically throughout North Fulton, and have a website and blog, see below… their focus includes several aspects that can lead our most vulnerable neighbors to poverty, including food in-security and lack of affordable housing.
These are just a few of the events and resources available for members of our community to learn more about affordable housing.
