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.Atlanta Contact Point

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.
