About HomeStretch

HomeStretch began in 1991 when volunteers at North Fulton Community Charities recognized the need for affordable housing in the North Fulton area. A growing number of families were at-risk of homelessness. However, the Charities could offer nothing beyond short-term, emergency aid. To meet this need HomeStretch was founded. Today, our agency owns and operates 30 single family residences. We have trained social workers who work directly with families plus over 800 caring citizens that commit their time and energy each year to ensure the success of our clients. The work of HomeStretch and its supporters has been recognized by various foundations and the community at large. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development rewarded HomeStretch with its Award of Excellence as one of the top 100 community housing organizations in the United States. HomeStretch, after meeting 100% of the requirements, was accredited by the Georgia Coalition to End Homelessness, Inc.

The heart of HomeStretch's mission is helping homeless families get back on their feet and into permanent, sustainable housing. This is no small endeavor considering that HomeStretch families typically earn salaries at or below the poverty threshold. Run the River 5K/10K is one of the primary fundraisers that keep HomeStretch growing and meeting this critical need.
