The Grove Park Initiative is sponsored by Grove Park Foundation, founded in 2015. Grove Park Foundation brings together several community stakeholders, including, Purpose Built Communities, Atlanta Public Schools (APS), KIPP, YMCA Metro Atlanta, Atlanta Habitat, True Colors Theater, Fox Theater, Emerald City Foundation and others. Grove Park Foundation is responsible for leading the development of all programs and partnerships, fundraising needed capital and operating dollars, coordinating project implementation partners and timeline, and engaging the community. The project consist of building of a Family YMCA and a federally-qualified health center (FQHC) in Atlanta’s Westside Grove Park neighborhood as a part of the Grove Park Initiative. The initiative also includes the building of Woodson Park Academy (a K – 8 school) and housing.

Voices from the Community

Without the NMTC program it would not have been possible for us to initiate a new K-8 Academy and YMCA early learning center in a disenfranchised neighborhood in 2019.
