Lifelong Communities

Living Beyond Expectations Campaign

Living Beyond Expectations Visioning Workshop - Auburn Avenue in Old Fourth WardLiving Beyond Expectations is a project of the ARC's Lifelong Communities Initiative. The 21st century offers the promise of longevity, allowing us to live longer than ever before. Communities must become places where people remain healthy and engaged throughout their lifetime. That means we will need more choices for housing and transportation, better strategies for maintaining health and expanded access to services. Working together, citizens, government, businesses and philanthropic organizations can realize the promise of longevity and create, throughout the Atlanta region, Lifelong Communities that allow us to live life "Beyond Expectations"
