On December 13, 2011, Asst. Dir. Shelton visits Strengthening Families & Communities Atlanta Coalition Meeting to meet various Partners and hear from its Committees.  Accompanied by Director from the Office of Refugee Resettlement, Mr. Eskinder Negash, Mr. Shelton listened eagerly as Senator Jones and Carlis Williams welcomed and opened the Coalition meeting facilitated by Alan J. Inman (SFCC).  The meeting began with a report on the Professional Development Conference illustrating the information sharing component of the SFCC Atlanta organizational pillars.   Committee report highlights include:

Economic Development/Financial Literacy-

Collaboration between SFCC Atlanta Partner, Al Duncan Enterprises, Monster Worldwide and Bank of America enabled Al Duncan Enterprises to provide financial literacy training for 285 high school students in Atlanta.

 

Youth Violence Prevention-

SFCC Atlanta Partner initiates campaign to obtain 100,000 signatures on the Metropolitan Atlanta Violence Prevention Partnership (MAVPP) Peace Plan.  The MAVPP Peace Plan is an overall plan of violence prevention initiated in six counties in the Metropolitan Atlanta area to provide a road-map for collaboration and service delivery of evidence-based and innovative violence prevention practices.

 

Asst. Dir. Shelton was impressed with the work of SFCC Atlanta and concluded his message with the following sentiments:

“You don’t know what you have here (SFCC Atlanta Coalition) anytime you have organizations ready to present their resources to work on common initiatives is powerful.”
