East Lake Foundation GA

Founded in 1995 on the belief that everyone deserves a chance to succeed, the East Lake Foundation collaborates with public and private organizations to offer Atlanta's East Lake residents opportunities to build a better future through education for children and adults, affordable housing, job readiness and connections with the broader community. Working with neighborhood residents and expert public and private partners, the Foundation developed a new community on the site of the former public housing project. The new East Lake includes a mixed-income apartment community; Atlanta Public Schools' first charter school, which is now serving more than 800 students; the East Lake Family YMCA; the Sheltering Arms Early Education and Family Center for children from birth to kindergarten; and the 18-hole, mid-length, public Charlie Yates Golf Course.
