As the University of Georgia converts the Navy Supply Corps School into a medical campus, a campus of a different sort will be springing up on North Avenue. As part of the deal to turn the former military base over to UGA, the university is paying a coalition of nonprofits $7.9 million to build housing and centralize services for the homeless.
Homeless advocates refer to it as a "one-stop shop," including medical and dental care, mental health and substance abuse counseling, job training and a place to sleep, shower and do laundry.
