Grove Park Foundation
Our mission is revitalizing the Grove Park neighborhood and improving the quality of life by working with local partners, leaders and residents to create a healthy, equitable and vibrant community.
We work with the Grove Park Community and local partners to provide equitable access to health, education, housing and opportunities. Our goal is to develop a cohort of partners, programs, and services that will build a self-sustaining and economically inclusive neighborhood.
We are committed to racial equity, improved health outcomes, and greater economic mobility for every person in Grove Park.
Access. Community. Empowerment.
The NOW program aims to increase the household incomes for Grove Park residents and families in zip codes 30318 and parts of the 30314, create 10 new community-based businesses, empower 1,500 residents to access banking services, and prepare more than 500 qualified renters or homebuyers for new affordable housing by 2022.
The Grove Park Foundation’s annual Connecting with Purpose event is going virtual on October 22, 2020. The event will honor the wonderful work and life of foundation board member David Moody with a live VIP reception.
The main event will continue with a video, personal messages and a time of shared celebration. It also will be a time of recognizing the incredible progress that Grove Park Foundation has made to build a healthy, safe, and thriving community alongside the residents of Grove Park.
COVID-19 is disproportionately impacting Grove Park families already vulnerable to health and economic disparities and now experiencing immediate and drastic loss of income.
