What We Do

Swope Dreams is creating a more inclusive Atlanta by expanding affordable housing opportunities in the city’s rapidly changing neighborhoods. We’re working alongside those being affected by rapid neighborhood change - residents, community leaders, small businesses, and so on– to invest in communities and end the conditions that create runaway gentrification.

What We Do:

  • Real estate investment – reviving properties, securing deed restrictions, and linking residents with affordable housing opportunities

  • Facilitating productive dialogue – connecting residents and developers to understand and prevent the conditions that create neighborhood inequality; raising awareness about neighborhood transformation

  • Developing better housing models – recommending new policy and regulatory frameworks to expand income-generating opportunities for neighborhood residents
