we encourage small business

FCS operates small businesses in order to provide jobs, spur on the local economy, serve as a community hub, and increase access to resources for all residents.


CARVER NEIGHBORHOOD MARKET 

The Carver Neighborhood Market has transformed South Atlanta from a food desert to a Food Oasis. FCS has developed a small grocery store model for low-income communities to have access to fresh, healthy food while providing local jobs.

COMMUNITY GROUNDS CAFE

Community Grounds exists to provide an amazing cup of coffee in an atmosphere that stimulates conversation, inspires creativity, encourages unlikely connections, and builds lasting community.

SOUTH ATLANTA BIKE SHOP

The South Atlanta Bike South develops youth through job training and bike repair. Youth learn to repair donated bikes with the option to earn a bike for their work. The South Atlanta Bike Shop is also open to the public for bike sales and repair work.
