Healthy, Thriving NeighborhoodsWe emphasize working closely with residents and local leaders to honor the history, priorities and needs of each neighborhood. Most struggling communities lack ready access to healthy foods, nearby health facilities or banking services.
A Foundation for Better LivingOur communities in Atlanta, Indianapolis and New Orleans each included the construction of a YMCA, job training services, and significant commercial investment based on resident needs. In Atlanta’s East Lake community, the positive health outcomes we are observing include:
- Reduced obesity in children
- Decreased absenteeism at school
- Lower rates of asthma
- Increased recreational activity in the neighborhood
