WHAT’S HAPPENING

The City of Atlanta recently broke ground on its third state-of-the-art @Promise Youth and Community Center.

The 15-thousand square foot facility will be located immediately behind the historic Andrew and Walter Young Family YMCA on Campbellton Road in Southwest Atlanta. The project is the culmination of a long and successful partnership between the City and the Atlanta Police Foundation.

Millions of dollars in funding from Truist Bank, along with a million-dollar grant from Invest Atlanta will help with the center’s construction. By partnering with the YMCA, the center will enhance and continue the Y’s legacy of building strong foundations for young people, by providing the valuable services and resources they need.
