The Little 5 Points Community Center (L5PCC) is a non-profit entity composed of partner organizations, community leaders, and neighborhood representatives. Our resident partners are non-profit groups with a wide range of goals with the common thread of community awareness and improvement.

In the fall of 1982 the L5PCC, Inc. leased the building from the Atlanta School Board and set up operations with a mission to support arts, cultural, and community service organizations in the Little 5 Points area of Atlanta. We have continued to contribute to the stability of the in-town arts community and to the growth of community cultural organizations. As a successful experiment in adaptive reuse of older school buildings, L5PCC, Inc., purchased the site from the Atlanta School Board in 1995.

Little Five Points Community Center is located at:
1083 Austin Ave NE
Atlanta, GA 30307
(404) 522-2926

For many years now, the Little 5 Points Community Center (L5PCC) has been providing quality, affordable meeting space for arts organizations, student artists, and grassroots non-profits. Host your next event at L5PCC. Click here for more info.

My Three Things visited Little Five Points in Atlanta, Georgia on January 17th, 2010 and conducted our first social experiment in asking locals to go on film to release three things that they were judging themselves negatively for and let go or forgive themselves for.

To release judgement from yourself can be really uplifting if you try. If you would like to give it a try visit us online at and submit a release!

We’re writing a book and filming a documentary about personal forgiveness. Would you like to participate?

Think of three things you’re willing to forgive yourself for. Once you have three things in mind, simply fill out a release form on our website and submit. You have the option to remain anonymous.

Video and audio submissions are also welcomed.

We created this project because we are passionately driven to facilitate a unique and healing connection among people around the world. We invite you to join our efforts by submitting a release form today!

Experience the freedom of releasing judgment.

Forgive yourself. Share it with the world!
