KICKOFF TO REBUILD
IN ATLANTA FOR
SUPER BOWL 53
In 2019, at Super Bowl LIII, Rebuilding Together Atlanta, as well as supporting community and corporate partners, have committed to revitalizing the Just Us neighborhood in the west side of Atlanta. Just Us is a historically black neighborhood developed in the 1950s for African-American residents during the height of the Civil Rights era. Now, descendants of the once thriving community find their neighborhood in decline due to passing time and lack of resources, putting them at risk of losing the homes their families built.
For the past 24 years, Rebuilding Together has partnered with the NFL to host projects in Super Bowl cities across the country, rebuilding houses and bringing neighborhoods together. To date, we have repaired 140 homes, engaged more than 5,000 volunteers, and invested more than $5 million in communities nationwide. These NFL-sanctioned events provide critical home repairs to neighbors in need and their communities. The event provides critical home repairs to people in need and addresses health and safety concerns. The Just Us neighborhood will be stronger with a more vibrant community.
