The Homelessness Council – formerly known as the Cobb Human Services Coalition – is an association of agencies and community organizations that work together to reduce homelessness and poverty in Cobb County. Members share resources and expertise to increase education, economic opportunity, decent housing, heath benefits, and other services for Cobb’s homeless and at-risk residents. The council has created a county-wide Discharge Plan to be utilized by hospitals, service agencies and law enforcement entities.

Jack Vaughan, Jr. was a state representative who showed unselfish dedication to public service and strongly advocated for those less fortunate in our community. In recognition and memory of Jack’s service, each year the Homeless Council honors two members of our community, a volunteer and a professional, who have exhibited outstanding service to the homeless and those at-risk for homelessness in Cobb County.
As a requirement of counties receiving funding from HUD (Housing & Urban Development) for homeless services, a single Point-In-Time Count of all homeless individuals on a certain date within a determined time frame must be conducted, at least, bi-annually.
