“We are very excited to have completed the build-out of our amazing new headquarters in the Southwest Atlanta community,” said Kwame Johnson, BBBSMA President, and CEO. “This location will allow us to more easily serve the families in our program and provides a working space that is more beneficial to our staff and the work we’re doing every day.”
The capacity building campaign raised over $2.35 million for the buildout of the new space, implementing a new service delivery model pilot, creating a dedicated department for training with a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and enhancing our fundraising and marketing capacity. Lead donors include the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, James M. Cox Foundation, Tull Charitable Trust, The American Opportunity Foundation and the Fraser-Parker Foundation.
