Neighborhoods Served

Our focus is on four Atlanta neighborhoods facing some of the greatest needs: English Avenue, Vine City, Ashview Heights and the Atlanta University Center. Over the last few decades, this once prosperous area has experienced broad decline. These historic neighborhoods were once the center of the birthplace of leaders in the civil rights movement—if Sweet Auburn was once one of the most influential centers of Black wealth in the United States, the Westside was one of the most vital centers of Black thought.

By starting with a clearly defined area, we can dig more deeply to understand the neighborhoods' unique needs and more efficiently direct efforts toward clear goals.

Impact Areas

Communities are proven to thrive when they excel at making people feel safe and secure, when people from all walks of life can afford to live together, when residents are educated and trained to be productive citizens, and when they have access to resources that improve their health and well-being. We’re focused on getting those four things right.
