Here is the latest information on how families facing eviction can contact Nicholas House for help.
We offer eviction prevention assistance for homeless families with children through a program called Home Again (typically up to two months of rent and utilities arrears though that may be subject to change due to the crisis).
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have expanded the program—current requirements are:
- Must be at least 18 years old with primary custody of at least one minor child (no single individuals or families without children, though we serve families with children of any composition)
- Must reside in the City of Atlanta, Fulton County or Stadium Neighborhoods (we may be able to serve residents in more areas depending on what funds come in—we anticipate some flexibility here)
- Must be at risk of eviction (no employment/income required through the COVID-19 crisis)
If a family is at risk for eviction and thinks they may be eligible, they should call our Boulevard location at 404-622-0793 and let staff know that they need eviction prevention. Staff will take down their information, share it with the appropriate case manager, and the case manager will reach back out via phone or email within 72 business hours.
I’ll keep you in the loop if we have any changes to this process or the eligibility requirements as the new case manager comes on board to help assist families with eviction prevention, hopefully within the next week or so. We expect to have a jump in capacity as far as how many families we can help once they are on boarded and have a streamlined “how to get help” sheet as well, which I’ll share once it’s made.
Please don’t hesitate to call or have folks call me with any questions! I’ll be sure to share updated eligibility requirements as they develop. J
Thank you and stay well!
