A Collaborative Approach to Neighborhood Development in Southwest Atlanta
In 2009, the Annie E. Casey Foundation launched and led a multipronged approach to revitalize Atlanta’s Pittsburgh neighborhood, which has seen some of the highest poverty and unemployment rates in the state of Georgia. The game plan? Prioritize safe, stable housing, which is necessary for communities to thrive.
This report tells how the Foundation and its partners, working in close collaboration with local residents, redeveloped 43 homes in the neighborhood and then rented or sold these properties at accessible rates.
