North Highland to Support Launch of GreenLight Atlanta
January 14, 2019
The GreenLight Fund, with support from North Highland among other philanthropic investors, has announced the launch of GreenLight Atlanta to identify and address pressing needs of the region’s low-income children and families.
GreenLight Atlanta will work to transform the lives of low-income children, youth and families in the Atlanta area by: conducting an annual process to identify critical needs; importing innovative, entrepreneurial organizations with proven, measurable results; and galvanizing local community support to help programs reach and sustain impact.
“The GreenLight Fund brings Atlanta a proven model to help low-income communities attain self-sufficiency through best-in-class service providers, a mission that’s central to North Highland’s philanthropic focus on economic empowerment,” said Dan Reardon, CEO.
Atlanta is the eighth community to join the GreenLight network. In other cities – Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Detroit, Kansas City, Philadelphia, and the San Francisco Bay Area – the GreenLight Method has been used to address a wide variety of issues including early childhood literacy, college access and persistence, teacher effectiveness, poor health outcomes, family income and asset-building, and youth aging out of foster care.
