Atlanta Con­tact­Point (ACP) is a Geor­gia 501©(3) non­profit orga­ni­za­tion estab­lished in 2012 to engage chil­dren and adults through the power of play.

We believe in the pos­i­tive rela­tion­ships among phys­i­cal activ­ity, nutri­tion, self-esteem, and their col­lec­tive impact on indi­vid­ual hap­pi­ness, social and cul­tural inte­gra­tion, and the economy.  Atlanta Contact Point

Our mis­sion is to cre­ate community-based mod­els to sup­port, edu­cate, and facil­i­tate com­pre­hen­sive edu­ca­tion and well­ness pro­grams which encom­pass sports, fit­ness, arts, nutri­tion, social/environmental respon­si­bil­ity, while also com­bat­ing the grow­ing prob­lems of inac­tiv­ity, vir­tual play, and poor eat­ing habits affect­ing youth and adults today.

Our vision is to pro­vide the Atlanta in-town com­mu­nity with inter­dis­ci­pli­nary indoor and out­door ini­tia­tives and recre­ation space(s)  where chil­dren and adults of all socio-economic back­grounds can come together to play and learn.

We func­tion as cat­a­lyst for capac­ity build­ing efforts, while also pro­mot­ing  the uti­liza­tion of alter­na­tive means of trans­porta­tion.  There is an open gen­eros­ity and care in all our actions, in the way we value peo­ple and cul­tures …to acti­vate spaces and conversations.

Endorsed_ByTo sup­port our mis­sion and with the endorse­ment of these orga­ni­za­tions, Atlanta Con­tact­Point hosts PLAY DAYS  through­out the year at local city parks and pub­lic venues.  The PLAY DAY EXPERIENCE is a free, fun-filled day of sports, fit­ness, nutri­tion, art, edu­ca­tions and sus­tain­able ini­tia­tives where local coaches and orga­ni­za­tions come together to facil­i­tate ini­tia­tives, drills and games for var­i­ous sports.

All our com­mu­niry engage­ment Ini­tia­tives are per­fectly in line  with  the  Smart Cities  global move­ment which encour­ages urban areas to focus not only on improv­ing the infra­struc­ture of a city, but on uti­liz­ing the social and intel­lec­tual cap­i­tal of its cit­i­zens as well, bal­anc­ing envi­ron­men­tal respon­si­bil­ity, eco­nomic growth, and social needs.
