Established in 2002 as a 501c3 nonprofit corporation, Making A Way Housing, Inc. A.K.A. "The Compound" set forth on a special mission to address the growing epidemic of homelessness in metropolitan Atlanta. Located in southwest Atlanta, the organization operates a facility that is comprised of 72-two bedroom, one-bath apartment units and a 25 bed emergency shelter. Single homeless adults, male and female, facing complex challenges associated with chronic homelessness, substance abuse, mental illness, and HIV and AIDS are welcome. Since its inception, the program has housed over 400 homeless persons helping them obtain gainful employment , learn to cope with and manage mental illness, achieve long-lasting substance abuse recovery, and reintegrate back into the community as productive, independent citizens.

As mentioned previously, homeless persons accepted into our program can access several housing options, emergency, transitional, and permanent supportive housing. Community partnerships provide residents with a comprehensive continuum of care which is vital to the sucess of, health and dental care, crisis care, employment and job search, mental health services, HIV/AIDS education and testing, and many other services as needed for the rehabilitation and healing process. Through these partnerships residents receive assistance with and are linked to entitlements, resettlement, life-skills, drug and alcohol addiction. The facility’s community spaces and amenities include a conference room, recreation room, laundry room, regular maintenance, and certified pest control services.
