Miller Project Director I. DESCRIPTION The Atlanta Foster Grandparent is directed locally b y Senior Citizen Services of Metropolitan Atlanta, Inc., through a contract with Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc. , the Grantee, and was started in January, 1966. Thirty six foster grandparents are employed at three institutions: Carrie Steele-Pitts Home for neglected children (2) , Georgia Regional Hospital at Atlanta, Retardation Unit (4), and Grady Memorial Hospital (30). In February, 1969 one foster grandparent was employed a t Grady Memorial Ho s p i tal with funds from a private Foundation , and i n Jun e fun ds wer e recieved f r om another Foundation to fin ance fou r additional gr a ndparents at the Georgia Regional Hospital , mak ing a total of 41 . I I. PROG RESS AND PROBLEMS Statist i cs: 1 r esignation , due to ill health 1 replacement employ ed in September 15 app l icat ion s h a v e b een r eceiv ed , b u t h a v e no t b een p r oce ssed . Scre en ing and t raining o r ienta ti o n classe s are planned f o r Octob e r. 40 days absence due t o illnes s 32 clinic visits we r e made by grandparents At Grady Memorial Hospital 31 grandparents were assigned to 20 teenage patients and 315 pediatric patients. At Georgia Regional Hospital 8 grandparents were assigned to 16 retarded children . Six children were assigned to two grand parent at Carrj_e Steele-Pitts Home . �2. The large number of children is due to the rapid turn over at Grady Hospital. Most of this year the census has been low and many times "good" assignments (long term, chronically ill) were not available. If this situation persists, a change in placement of grandparents will be recommended. One of the two grandparents at Carrie Steele-Pitts has resigned due to extended illness. We are not planning to replace her since we were advised that it is impratical to place less than four in an institution. We plan to transfer the other one in January. The major problem has been transportation for the eight grandparents at Georgia Regional Hospital. There is one morning bus which goes to the hospital, and no other bus until f our-thirty. The Hospital pays taxi fares back to city bus lines, however, these buses are irregular , and there is no place for them to wait out of the weather. The Advisory Committee and the Hospital are trying to assist us, hoping to find a solution before winter. On the brighter side we have enjoyed a very good summer. Three grandparents went to California to visit their families (who paid their fares) and our oldest grandmama, age 85 flew to New York to visit her granddaughter. Many of the others went on shorter trips, and all of them expressed gratitude for the "paid vacation", but said they were glad to be back on the job. The grandparents enjoyed "Senior Citizens Day" at the Southeastern Fair in September. The Foster Grandparent Club members ma de f ancy aprons which they sold at the Fair; the money will go to the Club trea sur y. The Atl anta Project was highly honored t o h ave t h e Commi ssioner on Aging, Mr . John Martin visit us on July 10th. He t alked with the g r andparen ts working with their c h ildren and commended them f o r t heir c o ntr i bution. He stated that th is was the first project he h ad seen i n act ion and that h e wa s very i mpressed with what he saw. He promised t o work for an extended program in 1970. The Policy Advisory Committee heard a report from Chaplain Keith, Program Director for the Retardation Cottage at Georgia Regional Hospital. He described the 16 severely or profoundly retarded children assigned to grandparents, and told of the _ dramatic progress made by many of them since the grandparents starte d there in April. He said that the hopsital is very anxious to get �7 I I I more grandparents, and that funds have been requested from the Georgia State Director of Mental Health. Letters requesting foster grandparents have been received from two local institutions, the Southern Christian Home for children (a private home 50 - 60 children 4 - 5 years) and the Atlanta Association for Retarded Children, which sponsors day school programs, training schools, etc. This group has given us much support in the past, and has volunteered a full week orientation and training to all future classes by their staff to supplement our orientation program. This was particularly needed since we are affiliated with the Retardation program at Georgia Regional Hospital. These requests will be considered for 1970 and referred to the Advisory Committee. �FOSTER GRANDPARENTS - JULY, AUGUST, SEPTEMBER, 1969 STATISTICAL REPORT Foster Grandparents (Program Account Number 14) A.

O . A . Board of Directors in accordance wit h the attached memorandum which was clear ed with the Fulton County Commissioners and Mayor of Atl anta abou t a year a go . ,,- Originally , the Fulton County Commissioners appo inted seven board members, the Mayor of Atlanta appoin ted seven , and the County Commissioners and Mayor together appointed jointly a fifteenth member to sel"v~ as Chairman. Later . under requirements of OEO , twelve elected repre entatives of the poor were added to the Board from respective neighborhood service center areas in Atlanta and Fulton County . Also later, Commissioners of Gwinnett and Rock dale Counties each appointed two members and a third from each county was elected by the poor . Under the required reorganization , Fulton County and Atlanta will each appoint four members . Of the seven members who have served as appointees of Ful ton County , Mr . Lucy Aiken , Mr . Harold Ben on, Mr . Jessie Hill, and Mr . John Greer will continue to serve unless Fulton County wishe to replace them now . As to the other three, Mr ; Carl Plunkett and Dr . Paul West wish to retire from the Board now and Mr . Jessie Grantham will be replaced by a direct nomination from the Atlanta , Georgia Labor Council AFL-CIO . The Chairman is now elected by the Board, which position I hold . Since an appointee jointly of the City and County and ince there ie no longer provi ion for a joint appointment , the Mayor a.a asked that I continue on the Board a one of the four appointees of the City along with Rev . Joseph L . Griggs, Mr . A.H. Sterne , and Rev. M . L . King . 1 wa A to the other four City ppointee , Mr. Willi m L . Calloway will probably be continued on a a nominee of the Community Council of the Atlanta Are , Inc., Dr. John Letson will retie from the Board in recognition of a nominee elected by the Board of Education, Mr . W. H. Montague ie cl ecea,·ed, nd Mrs. Ann Woodward will probably be nomin ted by the Board of Educ tion as it representative. �We believe that this plan continues on the Board the Fulton County and City of Atlanta appointees who are willing to continue , which will pro- . vide necessary stability . May I say that it has been a very great pleasure to work with all of your appointees, who have contributed very generously of the ir ' time and talents to our local anti-poverty efforts . The support of the Fulton County Commissioners and the the Mayor and Aldermen of Atlanta and the wisdom of your chpices for members of the Board have had considerable impact on development of the local program into what has been recognized nationally as one of the be's t. We hope to merit your continued intere t and help . Sincerely yours , Boi feuillet Jones Chairman EOA Board of Directors cc: Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr . City of Atlanta �

  • Text: Tci "Whom It May Concern: • As Manpower Representative for Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Incorporated, the private non-profit Community Action Program serving Atlanta, I would like to state my support in principle for • a resident Urban Skills Center for young women. Experiences in the Concentrated Employment Program, Neighborhood Youth Corps and other training programs which we sponsor has consistently demonstrated the need for additional training opportunities for females. I believe a residential program will be essential if a Skills Center is to serve young women from extremely deprived backgrounds in terms of providing a change of environment and to provide in depth Supportive Services on a consistent basis. Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Incorporated, has in existence a well established system for dealing with many aspects relating to the unemployed. We have established a strong working relationship with the Georgia State Employment Service in a coordinated outreach, job referral and job development effort. We also have viable linkage with other community groups concerned with manpower problems such as the Atlanta Urban League, Model Cities, State Vocational Rehabilitation, and the Atlanta Board of Education. Economic Opportunity Atlanta will be happy to cooperate in these and other functions relating to a Skills Center if such a Center is relevant to the needs of low income residents in the Atlanta area. In addition, we would consider coordinating existing training slots in our Concentrated Employment Program and other training efforts provide funding levels are adequate and appropriate linkage to the Skills ~enter could be negotiated. We feel strongly that the Skills Center must provide a meaningful opportunity foi input as to design and functioning on the part of low income residents to be served. Without this the Skills Center will lack creditability in the community it purports to serve and will make recruitment and retention extremely difficult. I am not by this letter endorsing any particular agency or company seeking this contract but intend to convey our desire as an agency to cooperate .constructively with whoever receives the contract and providing that the prime contractor pres ents a program that is relevant to the needs of the people we serve. ~//I-- Clint Rodgers, Associate Administrator for Manpower �
