Family Engagement Center
The Another Chance Family Engagement Center is located at Pavilion Place Apartments, 532 Cleveland Avenue, Atlanta, Ga 30315. The Center is a partnership with the Atlanta Housing Authority and Pavillion Place Apartments. Another Chance provides case management and supportive services to over 200 (women and children and individuals) in 48 units on the property as part of a Project-Based Rental Units (PBRA). The demographics include women and children and individuals classified as the working poor and those who receive social security and other forms of support. Another Chance proposes to provide family enrichment services to this population as well as others in the community in need of services. We are seeking support in four catagories: skill development, educational activities, leadership development and resource access. A combination of paid employees, contractors and volunteers will be utilized to provide six week, one hour sessions given several times a year, with food as incentive to attend and gift cards given when possible for successful completion. We will train a group of parents to assist as coaches to follow up on goal planning and continue to provide coaching support after the sessions are complete.
Create a community where families including parents, caregivers and children, are overcoming barriers and living lives full of promise and possibility for the future.
1) help parents, caregivers and children with skill development
