Homelessness in Athens
It is difficult to turn a blind eye to the pervasive problem of homelessness in Athens. People who lose their homes also lose their ability to meet many of their needs without help from their community. There are not enough resources within the Athens community designated to help people experiencing homelessness, and their attempts to solicit help or find shelter within the community often cause conflict with local businesses and government.
This problem cannot be solved by ignoring it or simply shuffling the homeless from one unsheltered location to the other. We must address the deep structural problems causing homelessness and come together as a community to build a brighter future for people experiencing homelessness in Athens.
