Join us in Atlanta…

FCS has been working in under-resourced neighborhoods in Atlanta for more than 40 years.

Over a decade ago we began welcoming leaders, innovators, and practitioners from all over the country who come to learn about our model for empowering neighborhoods to thrive. We are excited – finally! – to reopen our doors after the pandemic hiatus for FCS Open House on March 27-28. We would love to share our story and strategies with you.

Come to learn from and be inspired by our exceptional staff and neighbors. Experience historic South Atlanta, the neighborhood where FCS is currently working. Return re-energized for impact in your own community. 

Monday, March 27 and Tuesday, March 28, 2023

Pre-Open House Workshop, $99

Monday, 9:00a-12:00p. Authentic Community Engagement. The heartbeat of everything we do at FCS is proximity. Iimpact isn’t achieved simply through good programs and development strategies. We believe that community transformation happens at the speed of trust. We find that many of our partners and clients want to build healthy relationships, listen to the voice of the community, and build local leadership[, but they struggle to know how to do it well. Come to this workshop before Open House kicks off where we will walk through principles and practices for authentic community engagement. You will leave with practical steps for building local power for lasting impact.   

Open House, $179

Monday 2:00p-7:30p. Explore the foundational principles and values that uphold everything that we do at FCS. Dinner provided.  

Tuesday, 8:00a-2:00p. Immerse yourself in our context and work with a walking tour of our neighborhood and major projects. Hear presentations from key staff on the pillars of our work: neighborhood engagement, mixed-income housing, and economic vitality. Lunch provided.

Private Session, $205

Tuesday 2:30p-4:00p Want to go deeper?
