The Homeless Resource Network, formerly known as Metropolitan Columbus Task Force for the Homeless, Inc. has, since 1987, served the Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) of Columbus, Georgia and Russell County, Alabama, in the coordination of services and information for the homeless population. The Network began as a coalition of interested individuals who charged themselves with the task of addressing homelessness on a community level. In 1995, with assistance from the City of Columbus and the Georgia Coalition to End Homelessness, the Network for the first time established an office and hired staff. The Network continues to address homelessness as a non profit 501(c)(3) organization in partnership with service providers, concerned citizens and people experiencing homelessness.

 

Since 1995 the Homeless Resource Network leadership with the Continuum of Care has developed a wide array of services; from an increase in emergency shelter beds, to the development of transitional and permanent housing programs. In addition, many needed supportive services were identified, developed, and successfully implemented. As a result, Homeless Resource Network has helped direct over 15 million dollars to the Columbus area.
