Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy
Walton partners with the Ferst Foundation to provide a monthly age-appropriate book to children birth-age 5. Books are mailed to the child each month. This program is designed to promote a habit of reading in children and to get parents involved in reading to their children. Residents who relocate within Georgia will continue to receive the book until the age 5 (parent must provide a change of address to the Ferst Foundation). Contact your Leasing Center team to register.
Creating special memories for our children and instilling in them the importance of good character is a focus at Walton Communities. Toward that end, we partner with Parents with a Purpose, a non-profit, faith-based organization, to provide a quality after-school enrichment and summer camp programs to the children that live at Walton Village, Walton Reserve, Walton Ridenour, Walton Crossing and Walton Oaks.

Raising Highly Capable Kids
This program is offered twice a year and is open to residents of all communities. The program is facilitated at Walton at Columns Drive, Walton Crossing and Walton Reserve. This 13-week curriculum is based on Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets which seeks to give kids the leg up they need to thrive in today’s world. Negative influences inundate our kids every day. Raising Highly Capable Kids was created to help parents minimize the effects of those negative influences while increasing the probability that their children will invest in behaviors that lead to success.

Camp scholarships are for the purpose of providing children with an opportunity to have a summer camp experience who normally might not be able to experience one because of financial constraints. Click here for more information.

Five of our communities host a food co-op for residents, which is intended to help low to moderate income families who qualify under certain income limits to provide nutritious food for their family members. This program is run by the residents and provides approximately $100 worth of food per family every two weeks for a nominal $3 fee. The Food Security for America Program was started by the Georgia Avenue Presbyterian Church and is a non-profit, faith-based organization. The food that is distributed comes from the Atlanta Community Food Bank. www.gacm.org. Click here for more information.
