Thanks to the amazing support we receive each year for Georgia Gives Day, the Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership (ANDP) has been able to expand our redevelopment efforts throughout Metro Atlanta. This year marks ANDP’s 25th Anniversary, and we could not have reached this milestone without key supporters like you.
We ask that you help us celebrate this milestone and consider donating to our campaign. This year, we hope to gain 25 new donors and raise $7,500 in donations. Plus, EVERY DONATION WILL BE MATCHED (up to $5,000). The first 25 donors will receive NeighborWorks’ new book, NeighborWorks Works: Practical Solutions from America’s Community Development Network, showcasing ANDP.
Every contribution will also help us compete for a SunTrust Financial Well-being Challenge grant!
Since our inception, ANDP has supported more than 11,000
units of affordable housing and rehabilitated more than 457 single-family foreclosed homes. Our work has helped restore wealth to underwater neighborhoods and allow them to embark on the path to financial recovery. In the midst of change, ANDP is committed to the creation and preservation of mixed-income communities and will continue to convene stakeholders and advocate for equitable housing opportunities throughout the region. In the next year, we plan to redevelop 50 foreclosed homes throughout the region and house 20 veteran families.
This year, one of the veterans we assisted was Chad. Chad served five years in the U.S. Army and was deployed twice to Iraq to ensure the safety and freedom of our country. This year, he took a significant step to ensuring the safety and financial future of his two young daughters – he purchased a home through the ANDP Veterans Affordable Housing Program. As a first-time homeowner, Chad is now paying $300 less for housing through his mortgage than he was in rent. When asked about the difference the home has made in his life, Chad explained: “With my home purchase, I’m focusing on my future and that of my family. Paying less in mortgage than I was with rent, and a shorter commute means that I won’t have to take as many extra jobs and will be able to spend more time with my girls.” Learn more about Chad and others we've assisted by watching our 25th Anniversary video.
