With funding provided by Partners from Home, Gateway Center launched the Evolution Center on December 6, 2017 to address the needs of Atlanta’s chronically homeless in need of a low barrier shelter option.

Gateway Center’s Evolution Center provides emotional and physical support for men that are experiencing homelessness.  Evolution Center is designed to provide rapid access to safe shelter that is voluntary 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. The goal of this program is provide shelter beds to those individuals that need it most (not limited to) with priority on those individuals that are most acute and have the highest needs.

Though there are limited prerequisites for clients to gain access to the shelter, Evolution Center utilizes evidence based interventions models (case management, motivational interviewing, etc.) and wraparound support services for those clients expressing a desire to participate in services to aide them in transitioning out of homelessness.

For more information about and referrals to the Evolution Center, please call 404.215.6600.
