Representatives from Homestretch/Housing initiative of North Fulton, The Drake House, Habitat for Humanity - North Central Georgia, North Fulton Community Charities and Find a Way Home received Nov. 1 a proclamation from the Milton City Council named November “Homeless Awareness Month” in the city.

This year alone, more than 500 families sought transitional housing assistance in North Fulton. Homeless Awareness Month serves to heighten attention on the existence of the individuals needing help in North Fulton.
