About

Charis Community Housing, a division of FCS | Focused Community Strategies, has been building and restoring affordable, workforce and market-rate housing in our target communities for almost 30 years. We construct quality homes to create home buying and rental opportunities to families across the income spectrum in our focus neighborhood, currently Historic South Atlanta.

Mixed-Income housing is the foundation upon which a vibrant community may be built. For decades, Historic South Atlanta has been gripped by widespread vacancies and foreclosed, distressed properties. In the last 4 years alone, FCS has acquired, rehabbed and sold more than 35 units, reducing the number of vacant homes to below 140.

We have moved! 

In the last fifteen years, our attention has focused in the Historic South Atlanta community, and we are excited to relocate all of our team to the Gateway Building right in the neighborhood.

We’re excited for the ways this transition will ignite our impact in Historic South Atlanta. If you want an inside look at our new space, we’d love for you to come by and see us!

As of October 1, 2016, our new physical address is 1297 McDonough Blvd, SE, Atlanta, GA 30315. Our mailing address will remain PO Box 17628, Atlanta, GA 30316.
