New At-Promise Center breaks ground in South Atlanta

Long Engineering’s president, Joe Severin, PE, LEED AP, joined more than 140 civic and business leaders as they broke ground on the second At-Promise Center, located in Atlanta’s Pittsburgh neighborhood. Attendees included Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, City Council member Joyce Sheperd, Georgia Power’s Bentina Terry, Carter’s Bob Peterson, and Coca-Cola’s Helen Smith Price. They were joined by neighborhood leaders Johnny Floyd and Columbus Ward, nearly a dozen youth enrollees of the Westside At-Promise Center, as well as leaders of the social service agencies who provide services to the At-Promise Centers.

The At-Promise Centers are funded by donations to the Atlanta Police Foundation, which has raised more than $7 million in its current capital campaign focused on the At-Promise initiative. The At-Promise initiative is focused on reducing youth crime by providing customized social services including therapy, counseling, mentoring, tutoring, and enlightenment programs to youth who have been involved in the criminal justice system. At-Promise seeks to divert them to a pathway of productive lives, and away from recidivism.

Long Engineering is proud to have donated our civil engineering design services on this amazing project.

At-Promise Southside is due to open in Q3 2020.  More Information.
