Fcs Receives $40,000 Grant from Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation
When Carver Neighborhood Market opened its doors in 2015, it created a food oasis in Historic South Atlanta, offering fresh food to a neighborhood without grocery stores. FCS aims to get healthy foods in the hands and homes of the families who live in Historic South Atlanta and surrounding neighborhoods. A new two-year, $40,000 grant from the Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation puts FCS one step closer to this this goal.
Final Sale Opens New Doors
It’s with great joy and hope for the future that we announce the official sale of the GlenCastle property.
Having officially closed on the property, we are excited to look towards next steps! The funds from this sale will be reinvested right back into South Atlanta, and we are eager to move forward on the dreams we’ve been plotting. We are passionate about affordable housing and are exploring innovative ideas to increase affordable living options in our community.
Focused Community Strategies partners with under-served neighborhoods to provide innovative and holistic development that produces flourishing communities where God's Shalom is present.

vibrant community at community grounds
My family has lived in the Historic South Atlanta area for three generations. My grandmother stayed in the Villages of Carver apartment complex, and my mom attended Price High School, which has now become Price Middle School. I moved into South Atlanta three and a half years ago, and I started visiting Community Grounds as a customer. It is only a block away from my house, and I loved it!
any hope for mosul?
Mosul is being destroyed block by block. Heavily armed ISIS fighters are in bitter, bloody, hand to hand combat with Iraqi militia. Airstrikes rain down tons of heavy explosives that obliterate entire blocks of commercial and residential buildings. Artillery and mortar fire pound with precision every suspected enemy stronghold. Land mines and car bombs make streets virtually impassable. This once thriving Iraqi city is being systematically reduced to a pile of rubble.
