Current Project The South Fulton People-Centered Community Economic Development (SF-PCED) Initiative...
Following several years of informal community landscape analyses,
interviews and relationship-building, the SF-PCED was
launched. This emerging multi-sector, multi-level, regional community
initiative focuses on the holistic and comprehensive health and
well-being of all South Fulton residents - particularly those
most-affected by structural, systemic and racial inequities.
SF-PCED has four priority Focus Areas,
each of which is supported by four Community Action Teams (CAT);
and will be steered by a South Fulton nonprofit organization - serving
as Lead agency (LA) for each issue area:
1. Behavior & Mental Health (BMH); BMH-CAT - Odyssey Family Counseling Center (LA)
2. Housing Affordability (HA); HA-CAT - Zion Hill Community Development Corporation (LA)
3. Economic & Workforce Development (EWD); EWD-CAT - LA TBD; and
4. Environmental Health (EH) - LA TBD
Community Action Teams
A multidisciplinary team composed of a variety
of stakeholders that come together to solve issues
or barriers identified within a defined
geographical area or population. Each CAT is
undergirded with training, technical assistance and resources to plan,
coordinate, and implement issue area strategies and activities.
Presently, Ubuntu is partnering with United Way's "Brighter
Futures South Fulton" to engage residents of South Fulton
in the identification of the drivers and potential solutions of poor
outcomes in Mental & Behavioral Health and Housing Insecurity by
residents in the region. The partnership with "Brighter Futures South
Fulton", SF-PCED is targeting the following South Fulton zip codes in
Atlanta - 30315 & 30354 (East Cleveland Avenue corridor), East Point:
30344, and College Park: 30337.
Our support from
