To provide immediate relief and long-term solutions for the most vulnerable members of our community by preventing, combating, and reducing homelessness within the Capital Region.

We provide relief by meeting the immediate need for shelter, food, and clothing in addition to addressing the long-term need for affordable housing and sustainable employment.
We employ a holistic wrap-around approach in caring for our neighbors in need and we serve all persons with dignity and respect. HATAS works in concert with our partners in service to eliminate redundancies and to increase the quality and variety of services available within the Capital Region.
