For more than half a century, United Way of Greater Atlanta had been located at 100 Edgewood Avenue in the Woodruff Volunteer Center – a building generously donated by one of Atlanta’s most notable philanthropists and former president of the Coca-Cola Company, Robert Woodruff.
Now, just across the alley at 40 Courtland, their new home sits above a building named after another notable and respected philanthropist, R. Charles Loudermilk. These philanthropic visionaries embody the spirit and dedication United Way of Greater Atlanta has to ensure that children, families and communities thrive.
In 2018, with the help of tvs Design, United Way of Greater Atlanta completed a new office design commonly known as “resimercial” – a combination of residential design within in a commercial setting. The new space is a sophisticated but approachable design with a purpose. Warm and inviting, this space was designed to foster enhanced collaboration, productivity and an unyielding focus on the community.
