Transforming Community through BOLD acts of Love!


The Art Tatum Zone exists to create a comprehensive, integrated framework of programs and services that will serve to bring hope and help to children and families.  The work will be built upon a foundation of existing strengths and assets within the zone to help transform a community guaranteeing that children, youth, and their families achieve academic excellence, family and housing stability and economic self-sufficiency. We seek to transform our community through bold acts of love. 



The vision of the Art Tatum Zone is to create a healthy and safe community where every child excels and every family succeeds, and where every community member is self-sufficient living in a neighborhood that they are proud to call their permanent home.
