FCS has been partnering with the Historic South Atlanta Neighborhood since 2001. In the last fifteen years, FCS has been able to restore over 140 homes and brought dozens of families in the neighborhood which creates a wholesome, viable, and self-sustaining mixed-income neighborhood. We have also opened several small business including Carver Neighborhood Market, Community Grounds Cafe, and the South Atlanta Bike Shop. These small businesses provide local jobs, a safe third space for the community to gather, and stimulates the local economy. FCS believes there is a different approach in combating material poverty. By offering holistic solutions to chronic problems, we can transform entire communities, one by one.
