Atlanta, Georgia – The Westside of Atlanta the English Avenue & Vine City neighborhoods, there is a place known locally as “The Bluffs” and is the heroin capital of the Southeast.
The At-Promise Youth and Community Center is a state-of-the-art learning and community facility with specialized services for youth and a gathering place for residents, group activities and other purposes. Located in historic English Avenue, the At-Promise Center is an opportunity to participate in the revitalization efforts of this community. This center is the cornerstone of the Atlanta Police Foundation’s youth crime reduction initiative. This initiative enrolled 347 youth in its first year, providing specialized programming for youth and young adults ages 12 to 24 who reside on Atlanta’s Westside.
Shooter Detection Systems and other charitable partners are ensuring that the children of this community are not considered “At Risk” children but rather are “At Promise” with an opportunity to rise above the violence and drugs that for too long has plagued this neighborhood. SDS is proud that the Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System is employed to reduce police response times and improve the safety of the occupants.
