Please find below the link to the complete and correct versions of the Full Report and Executive Summary for the Needs Assessment conducted by the Georgia Healthy Policy Center of Georgia State University. We also would like to share the true intent of why the Needs Assessment was conducted and the information that we took from the report.
The purpose of the Needs Assessment was to determine the need for shelter beds in the state of Georgia, and the only information used from the final report was the bed need for the 159 counties. It is not the intent of this office to close existing shelters in order to establish regional shelters or judicial circuit shelters. The county bed need numbers were the only numbers used from this report for the FY14 RFP process.
