A $15,000 grant has been awarded to the Tucker Civic Association for implementation of its Lifelong Community Project.
The grant from the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta includes $5,000 to support programming and planning focused on senior services and engagement and $10,000 for community coaching to set up and implement the program.
The Tucker Lifelong Community (TLC) Project is committed to creating a "home for a lifetime" by building, promoting, and expanding accessability of service programs, diverse housing and transportation options, and encouraging healthy lifestyles for residents of all ages. The program is based on input from the community through surveys and ongoing focus groups and upcoming events.
“I am excited about this opportunity to create a cohesive and sustainable community in Tucker,” said Johnna Gardner, LCSW, co-chairperson of the TLC Committee of the Tucker Civic Association, “and the support we have been given through this grant.”
The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta connects donors, nonprofits and local leaders to strengthen the Atlanta region through philanthropy. The Foundation does this by providing quality services to donors and innovative leadership on common issues.
The Tucker Lifelong Community Project is currently setting up focus groups and events for community involvement.
