Serving the Westside
Partner for good to bring positive, lasting change
The neighborhoods nestled on Atlanta’s Westside possess deep historical significance. Once incubators for the civil rights movement, these culturally rich communities—Vine City, English Avenue, the Atlanta University Center, and Ashview Heights—are now home to some of the nation’s most prestigious historically black colleges and universities.
Due to years of disinvestment and poor management, families and local businesses today struggle to survive. Truett Cathy once said there is a solution to every problem. Atlanta is Chick-fil-A’s hometown. These are our communities, and these are our children. Our hope to shape the future begins here.
That’s why the Chick-fil-A Foundation is proud to work hand-in-hand with local community members, civic and non-profit organizations, and corporations to restore and revitalize these historic communities. Together, we believe we can bring about positive, lasting change for the children and families who call the Westside home.
Atlanta’s Westside was once a thriving part of the city, and we believe it can be again.
