Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless

As part of a study on the politics of homelessness in Atlanta, Professor Charles Steffen has been participating in policy meetings of the Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless. Since its establishment in 1981 the Task Force has served as both an advocacy group for the homeless and a service provider at its Peachtree and Pine facility. No other group in the city has done more to publicize the structural forces that produce homelessness or to challenge the vision of downtown revitalization advanced by Central Atlanta Progress, the organization of downtown business interests, and its political allies.
