you are invited
Three times a year FCS welcomes leaders, innovators and practitioners from all over the country who come to learn about our model for transforming distressed neighborhoods. You are invited to join us at our next FCS Open House on October 22-23.
FCS has been working in under-resourced neighborhoods in Atlanta for almost 40 years. We would love share our story and strategies with you. Come and learn from Dr. Bob Lupton, Jim Wehner and Katie Delp, along with various FCS neighbors and staff. Experience historic South Atlanta, the neighborhood where FCS is currently working
open house schedule
For both days, doors open at 8:45am, we start at 9am and conclude at 3pm.
DAY ONE: Smart Charity
The focus for Day One of the FCS Open House is on principles and practices for healthy charity. Whether you work in urban, suburban or rural areas, chances are your church or nonprofit engages in some form of direct service to those experiencing poverty. Day One will address the difference between toxic and healthy charity, and offer practical support for making necessary changes.
DAY TWO: Community Development
Day Two focuses on FCS’s model of transforming distressed urban neighborhoods through our three areas of impact: economic development, community development & mixed-income housing.
