We want to see the Westside thrive
Westside Future Fund (WFF) created the Home on the Westside program as part of our commitment to community retention. The program is in alignment with the Westside Land Use Framework Plan, developed to ensure that long-time residents can benefit from revitalization efforts in the historic community.
In collaboration with the City of Atlanta under the leadership of Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, and the support of philanthropic, corporate and community partners, we want to provide safe, quality housing that is attainable for all residents.
Our vision is to cultivate a community Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be proud to call home. We want to see a thriving Westside where all residents can live long, healthy lives.
Quality, affordable housing is one of the four impact strategies — including cradle-to-career education, safety and security, and community health and wellness — that we are supporting to fulfill this vision for current and future generations. Learn more

We are deeply committed to community retention
About the Home on the Westside Community Guidelines: The WFF Board of Directors adopted community retention guidelines that prioritize households with ties to the neighborhoods in WFF’s footprint for Home on the Westside programs. The guidelines address the following criteria:
- Residency: Families and individuals who live or have previously lived within WFF’s geographic footprint
- Work: Individuals currently working within the WFF footprint, especially teachers, first responders, and nonprofit employees
- Education Affiliations: Families with children attending school in the Atlanta Public Schools Washington Cluster; Graduates of Atlanta University Center (AUC) institutions and Booker T. Washington High School
- Families with children: Families with one or more children under 18 years old
- Housing cost burden: People who currently spend 50% or more of their household income on housing
We’re helping ensure deeper affordability for Westside residents via public-private partnerships
We are grateful for our partnership with the City of Atlanta, under the leadership of Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and her One Atlanta vision. To date, WFF has received $6 million in free land, vacant buildings and HomeFlex rental assistance from Invest Atlanta and Atlanta Housing. This critical support will enable us to deliver deeper affordability for Westside residents through the Home on the Westside program.
Other partners advancing the initiative include the Atlanta Police Foundation, On the Rise Financial Center, CHRIS 180, Atlanta Habitat for Humanity, Pulte and Quest Community Development Organization.
Thank you to all our partners.
