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 24-25, 2016.   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.

We will be in the Gateway Building, which is attached to and directly behind the Carver Market. This is at 1297 Jonesboro Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30315. Parking is limited. Please park in the gravel lot across the street from the grocery store.
