Our Story

Founded in January, 2015 as Grove Park Community Association Atlanta by Harry D. Clements, Jr., Grove Park Atlanta Community Empowerment has advanced from being just a social media page providing information about local programs, services and events to the community of Grove Park to incorporating the Grove Park Atlanta name and operating as a non-profit organization that provides tools and resources to Atlanta's northwest communities that foster self-sufficiency, improve their well-being and promote self and community pride.

 

On our first anniversary, our organization name was changed from Grove Park Community Association Atlanta to Grove Park Atlanta Community Empowerment to better support our mission.
