The Stewart Center has been serving Atlanta communities since 1916. We are a community development organization that exists to see our neighbors living purposeful lives in pursuit of their full potential. The Center provides educational enrichment, wellness resources, and affordable housing solutions to the residents of the Pittsburgh community of southwest Atlanta.
After School Program at Kindezi – Gideons Elementary School
The Stewart Center is the on-site After School provider for Kindezi-Gideons Elementary School. We are a few weeks into the new school year and our students are hard at work in their Studio classes (Journalism, Computer Science, Performing Arts) learning new content, building skills and creating deliverables – school newspaper, video games, theatrical performances – that they will share with the community.
The Center’s after school program supports student’s intellectual and emotional development, provides life changing enrichment, and builds enduring relationships with families in the Pittsburgh community of southwest Atlanta.
Whether you’re a parent of a Kindezi-Gideons student looking to enroll your child or a community member wanting to make a difference in the lives of children there’s a place for you at the Stewart Center. Please contact or Children’s Programing Director, Chantal Mpezo at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Middle & High School Program
The Center’s middle and high school program engages neighborhood students in a leadership development program that builds community and prepares students for personal success in school and beyond.
With the support of the group, each student creates and follows a plan designed to help them achieve their short and long-term goals. The program provides students opportunities to learn and explore new thoughts and experiences in an inclusive environment.
This year’s program focuses on students’ overall wellness and learning through service. Please contact our youth director, Jonathan Johnson at Jonathan@stewartcenter.org to enroll your teen or learn about volunteer opportunities.
Pittsburgh Community Housing
Pittsburgh Community Housing (PCH) purchases dilapidated houses and rehabs them to lease or lease-purchase to Stewart Center families. PCH currently has twelve houses, ten of which are occupied by families with children in Stewart Center programing. Rehab on the other two will be complete by the end of 2019.
PCH houses support families’ financial stability, reduce vacancy, and help stabilize the neighborhood. PCH’s work also helps preserve affordable housing in a rapidly rising real estate market.
To learn how you can support PCH’s work contact Clayton Davis at email@example.com.
