Atlanta ContactPoint (ACP) is a Georgia 501©(3) nonprofit organization established in 2012 to engage children and adults through the power of play.
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.
Utilizing sustainable development techniques with historic preservation guidance, we have proposed to the state to transform the Pullman Yard historic site into a smart and functional urban space. Our hope is that it will serve as a shining example of how innovative community recreation centers can benefit metropolitan areas and serve as much-needed touch points and gathering places for the community.
To support our mission, Atlanta ContactPoint hosts PLAY DAYS throughout the year at local city parks. PLAY DAY is a free, fun-filled day of sports, fitness, nutrition, art, and sustainable initiatives where local coaches and organizations come together to facilitate initiatives, drills and games for various sports.
Our Pullman Yard and Play Day development approaches 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.
