QT Partners with Georgia ‘Motel to Home’ Program
St. Vincent de Paul Georgia increases housing stability through eviction prevention, rehousing and transitional housing programs, and housing services for at-risk individuals and families. The Motel to Home program started as a pilot program with thirteen families in 2020 with the dual support of United Way of Greater Atlanta and the City of Norcross. Thanks to the success of the program and a transformative gift that expands a partnership with QuikTrip, Motel To Home has grown to serve all of metro Atlanta in 12 Georgia counties: Butts, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, and Paulding. The majority of clients live in motels in DeKalb and Gwinnett counties, where there is a high concentration of extended-stay motels. In 2023, Motel To Home is on track to secure stable housing for over 200 families with the support of QuikTrip. In 2024, the program anticipates serving 275 families and growing to 425 in 2025 with QuikTrip’s continued support. We are excited to also announce our first client outside of metro Atlanta, Glynn County, has just entered the Motel to Home program.
