The Start of the Network
The Bayou District Foundation was the first organization after the East Lake Foundation in Atlanta to implement what is now called the “Purpose Built Communities Model” of neighborhood transformation. It was this extension of the concept that helped inspire the creation of the Purpose Built Communities network of communities leveraging the holistic model across the country.
The Bayou District Vision
The mission of the Bayou District Foundation is to implement and maintain an innovative community re-development model that enables children and families to live productive, healthy and fulfilling lives in a thriving community.
