About Future Foundation

Future Foundation is a nonprofit youth development agency with an 18-year history of empowering Atlanta's high-risk youth and their parents to overcome the negative impacts of pervasive intergenerational poverty. Focused on the target communities of South Fulton we believe we can level the playing field for high-risk youth by working together across these communities to provide a safe, supportive environment where they can grow intellectually, gain confidence, and pursue a path that leads them out of poverty and into self-sustaining adulthood. Our innovative Second Family model connects community organizations to give high-risk youth access to education, experiences, relationships, and life skills they need to become capable, courageous adults. 100% of youth participating in our program graduate high school on time. They also have continuing access to the social capital and relationships they formed while in our programs, leading to greater life-long success.
