May 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


As part of the Home Empowerment series, the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership is teaming with Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation and the city of Atlanta to host a free virtual workshop designed to provide information and identify resources available to you during the COVID-19 pandemic. Welcoming remarks will be made by the city of Atlanta’s Chief Housing Officer, Terri Lee.
