Partnerships and People Investment

Atlanta Housing provides more than housing.  The Partnerships and People Investments (PPI) division partners with Residents to provide educational, economic, and health opportunities that create an entryway toward self-reliance and improved quality of life.

PPI focuses on five areas to expand opportunities through community partnerships and support services:

Digital Literacy & Internet  Connectivity

AH will narrow the digital divide for families by preparing them with digital knowledge and skills and creating opportunities that equip families for the technology age with computers and Internet access. These resources will keep youth, adults, seniors and persons with disabilities connected to society giving them the ability to apply for jobs online, do homework and complete online school, pay bills, stay connected to family, friends and support systems, manage budgets, checking and savings accounts online and participate in online employment opportunities.

In partnership with the City of Atlanta, AH participates in HUD's ConnectHome initiatives through which computers and free Internet services have been made available to over 160 youth and their families receiving AH housing assistance.

 

Health and Wellness

AH’s signature Aging Well program has been successfully used to encourage and empower older adults to actively age in place and control decisions that affect their lives and the aging process.

If you are interested in receiving more information on health and wellness programs, please complete the ConnectMe form.

 

Volunteerism

In FY 2018, AH developed AH CARES, an organized volunteer program that allows AH staff, family and friends to participate in AH-sponsored volunteer projects.
