For Us By Us Atlanta Fund

A COVID-19 response fund brought to you by Latino Association for Parents of Public Schools (LAPPS) and Atlanta Thrive. 

Immediate Financial Assistance To APS Parents Of Color

The rapid spread of COVID-19 globally has resulted in volatile and unpredictable environmental shifts. We understand that while all communities have been impacted, it’s our Black and Latino(a) communities that have been most vulnerable to these impacts. #FUBUAtlFund is here to unite and provide resources needed to aid in the health and well being of parents, their children and our communities.

for us by us


The Latino Association for Parents of Public Schools’ (LAPPS) mission is to empower parents to be fundamental & active participants in their children’s education. 


LAPPS provides a support network for parents to have a voice within school systems, effecting positive change through collaboration between parents, schools & communities to promote equality through equity & access in education. LAPPS local chapters work on planning integral school activities, functions, and more contributing to student academic success. 

for us by us


Atlanta Thrive trains and mobilizes parents to become ambassadors for change in APS, but also acts as a bridge for those who can’t.


As a parent-led organization, Atlanta Thrive empowers families of Atlanta Public Schools to disrupt the inequities in the education system and advocate for closing its 60 percent achievement gap. Atlanta Thrive strives to combat the correlation between race and household income in APS neighborhoods and the performance of their schools by sharing knowledge and resources with parents and other members of the school community.

Thank you so much for your interest in the #FUBUAtlFund.  Since our launch on June 1, 2020, we have received an overwhelming response.  While we’d love to give funds to everyone in need, we’re only able to provide funds to a select amount of those who have applied. 


If you received a relief fund BB&T check, we recommend that you go to a full service branch and utilize the drive thru.  If you experience any difficulty with cashing the check at a BB&T branch, please have the branch contact the South Cobb Branch 4575 S Cobb Dr SE, Smyrna, GA 30080 at (770) 438-6243 and ask for AJ or Angela.



Muchas gracias por su interés en el #FUBUAtlFund. Desde nuestro lanzamiento el 1 de junio del 2020, hemos recibido una respuesta gigantesca. Aunque nos encantaría poder entregar los fondos a todas las personas necesitadas, solo podemos hacerlo a un número selecto de los que han presentado su solicitud.

Si recibió un cheque del BB&T con fondos de apoyo, le recomendamos que vaya a una oficina que ofrezca todos los servicios, y que utilice el cajero de autoservicio en carro, también conocido como autobanco (drive thru). Si tiene alguna dificultad para cobrar el cheque en una oficina del BB&T, por favor pida en la oficina que se comuniquen con la Oficina de South Cobb, 4575 S Cobb Dr SE, Smyrna, GA 30080, al (770) 438-6243, y que pregunten por AJ o Angela.
