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.
