  • Text: CITY OF .ATLANTA August 7, 1969 OFFICE OF MODEL CITIES PROGRAM 673 Capitol Avenue , S.W. Atlanta , Ga. 30315 404-524-8876 Ivan Allen Jr., Mayor J. C. Johnson , Director Mr. John Martin Commissioner of Aging Department of Health, Education and Welfare Washington, D. c. Dear Commissioner Martin: The Atlanta Model Cities Program was very honored by your recent visit, and greatly appreciates your keen interest in our efforts . We have gathered together some descriptive material about the programs for senior citizens which we visited or discussed during your visit, and we are enclosing the same along with this l etter. The Atlanta Model Cities Program has benefitted tremendous l y f r om its close working relationship with the Senior Citizens Services of Metropolitan Atlanta . In the spring of 1968, du r ing o ur ear l y planning period, Senior Citizens staff provided direct as s istance to the Model Cit{es social services planner . Their professional staff drew up and conducted , with the help of Model Cities a i des , a survey of about 300 senior citizens, and obtained valuable information about the needs and services of our olde r popul a t i on. They also met with groups of senior citizens a n d with the reside nt s o cial s ervice c ommi t t ees to furthe r e x plo r e the prob l e ms and unmet need s o f o u r s enior citizens . Comb i ning t h e mate r ia l ga ined f r om the survey and t h e community meet ings with th e ir gene r a l expe r tise in the fi eld of aging, they then d evelope d with o u r s taff a n 6 u ti i ne o f the problems, causes, �-2- goals and program approaches for older persons liv i n g in t he Model Cities neighborhood . This was a valuable contribution to Atlanta's Model Cities overall plan. Senior Citizen Services will receive Model Cities supplemental funds in two major projects~ one for day care services and a second for a personal services center (see attached description). Since the beginning of this year, our respective staffs have worked closely to finalize plans for these projects. In addition, Senior Citizens has continued to lend assistance in our ongoing planning process . A timely e x ample of this . is our joint efforts, along with Fulton County Department of Family and Children's Services, to develop a protective services project for older persons in the Model Cities Area. This close working relationship between our two agencies has provided the Model Cities program with valuable e x pertise in the field of aging and has insured the inclusion of meaningful projects for senior citizens in our first year plan. Senior Citizens Services has, in effect, acted as an advocate - and a most s u ccessful one - for the senior citizens in Model Cities. Atl a n ta's Model Cities program has planned a wide vari e ty o f p r ojects which will benefit senior citizens . These p r ojects a r e described i n gr eater detail in the attached mater ial . Als o inc luded a re d es c r iptions of several projects which Senior Ci t izens Serv ices has planned fo r both the Model Cit i e s a rea and t he city as a whole . We hope that y ou will find the e n closed mater ial u seful. We will be h appy to supplement i t with mo r e d etai led information about any p a r ticular projec t. Onc e again, thank you for you r in ter e s t i n o u r program . -~ ·~ James R. Shimkus Social P l a nning Director cc: Al Horvath �

  • Text: ~ ~------- Older Volunteer Participation in Community Life Task Force Report, June, 1969 The Task Force was comprised of five retired or semi-retired persons with known skills and varied background e xperience. They were employed on a part-time basis, during June, to assist Senior Citizen Services with the following tasks: 1. Explore e x isting volunteer service opportunities which may be suitable for the involvement of older volunteers as well as of the .more traditional age groups. 2. Suggest new and untried service opportunities that might be developed by Senior Citizens and/or other agencies and organizations. 3. Contact sources of older volunteer recruits, or potential recruits, through organized groups and individual contacts. This was not intended as a specific recruitment effort, but rather a testing of attitudes toward, and interest in, participation as opportunities come to light. 4. Interpret the Educational Motivation school program now in the planning ~tages with the Atlanta School System. 5. Report fi n dings to Senior Citizen Services fo r comment and future prog ram planning efforts , includi ng the Model Cities Pr ogram. Assignments were assumed by the Ta s k Force of a contact area with whi ch they were familia r ically. However, d if f erent a n d varie d e c onomi c were reached . A mo r e deta iled r eport t o f o llow of service oppor tuni t ies and volunteer i n te re st serve in appr opriate r o l e s. worker s on th e ba si s rathe r than g e ograph levels o f the commu n i ty wil l r e flect the range and wil l i~gness to A ve ry b ri ef summary of f i nd ings suggests the following: 1. Nursing Homes, with o ne o r t wo e xceptions, can and will we lc ome the skills an d intere st of older volunteers and will assure proper a ssig nme nts and supervision. The s ame is true of the two l arg e hospitals visit e d and other institutions conc e rne d with mental and physical health. 2. Elementary Schools in low-income areas reiteriated their d e sire to involve older persons in one - to - one relationships �with slow learners and with children lacking motivation . A limited number of older individuals e xpressed interest in this type of service. 3. Public Housing , High-rise Apartments and contiguous communities - produced a vast need for personalized services and comparable interest in giving service to others by many residents. Simple service needs e.g., friendly visiting, home delivered meals, transportation to church and to markets, telephone re-assurance and others were obvious. 4. Churches and related organizations were most enthusiastic about a movement which would engage many of their older members in other than so-called social clubs. By and large, each congregation cares for its own but has not moved beyond this concept in favor of serving the community at large. 5. The Task Force workers report a receptive attitude toward the utilization of older volunteers and a surprising number of retire.es were pleased, others somewhat surprised, to learn that there are roles and opportunities f or them in this big Atlanta metropolitan area. 6. The ever-present problem of transportation ava i labi lity and cost is, and will be, a deterent u nl ess s p e cial attention is given to ways and means o f o vercoming it . In conclusion - Senior Citizen Services wil l work closely with the newly established Volunteer Bureau of the Community Council to assure the involvement of Older Volunteers a n d wi ll strengthen the volunteer se r vice corps concept as a built - i n d i mensio n of its own agency prog r a ms .

Secondly , the plan calls for the improvement of Health and Welfare and the phys ic a l renewa l of the area.

  • Text: A Repmrt of Citizen Participation in the Pittsburg Connnunity The Pittsburg Neighborhood Service Center, as is true of all other centers, has a citizen's advisory connnittee, whose primary function is to keep the staff of the center advised on changing needs and suggested remedies. Since the Pittsburg Neighborhood Service Center is still operating with a temporary connnittee, and is only now holding elections for its first permanent committee, the ad hoc committee in this community is much larger and has a broader base than normal. The prior function of this group had been to generate sufficient connnunity concern and interest, and to demonstrate to EOA Headquarters a need for a center in the Pittsburg Community . To this end, meetings were held over a period of a year during which all of the committees and sub-committees functioned . Whe n the Pittsburg Neighborhood Service Center opened, this temporar y connnittee continued to advise. Representing approx imately fou r hundr ed (400) people , this group has been able to give direct i on to the cent er from a var iety of experiences , and from a gene r al k nowledge of c ommuni ty problems . Things f or which th is corrnnuni ty is or has been d i re c t l y re spon sibl e are: 1 - rec ommendat ion s f or indige neou s and indigent p er sons t o be empl oyed 2 determination of prioritie s o f service 3 - selec tion of s ite 4 - advocate s for the c enter. �A further evidence of citizen involvement may be demonstrated by the neighborhood elections which are now in progress. The entire connnunity, which has been subdivided into groups called area blocks, is at work electing persons to represent them on a permanent connnittee, and this is being accomplished via the same procedure used in all local and national elections. The same machines used in general elections are being used in these neighborhood elections, and the same registration procedures are being employed. After a survey conducted by the center staff, and after finding that voter registration did not account for a reasonable percentage of the total community population, the ad hoc committee of the Pittsburg Neighborhood Service Center felt that in conjunction With the election process, some emphasis should be placed on voter registration. In all of these instances, the entire staff of the center has operated both at the direction of the committee, and in response to the obvious need for organization. One major pr oject, which is still continuing, is a cooperative effort of the center and the Pittsburg Civic League toward the acquisition of a community center. The extension and housing departments, along with the director, have had plans drawn up, inspected sites and written proposals, all at the direction of the Pittsburg Civic League. Contact has been m~de with Dr. Phillip Weltner of The Whitehead Foundation wi th the hope that funds for this project may be made avail- ' able. Due to some difficulty with a wi ll, the first choice was re- luctantlY, rejected. Title searche s are in process to determine the availability of other sites, and, hopefully, the Pittsburg Civic League will be able to realize this ambition in the very near future. There are other instances of general connnunity involvement which are usually on a smaller scale , and would require a more specific and numerical presentation. �All of the above are submitted as examples of the involvement of the Pittsburg Cormnunity through the Pittsburg Neighborhood Service Center in the solution of their own problems. �

Citizens Advisory Committee for Urban Renewal An aggressive and effective force for citizen participation in urban renewal and associate activities is the Citizens Advfsory Committee for Urban Renewal. Authorized by resolution of the Board of Aldermen, this committee has a membership of some 80 citizens, appointed by the mayor. The membership represents all sections of the city and the ·various economic strata of business and professional life. Special care is taken to have at least 40 per cent of the membership from the minority race. Ever since Atlanta became actively engaged in urban renewal, this citizens committee has been very forceful in broadening public understanding of the aims and actions in the various projects. It has subcommittees specifically assigned to each point in the city• s workable program. A special subcommittee has worked closely with the Community Improvement Program since its inception. The Citizens Advisory Committee as a whole headed up a campaign which played a leading role in strengthening the city• s housing code enforcement program to meet workable program requirements. The full committee meets four times a year. At the first meeting of each year, the mayor outlines his plans for the year in urban renewal and housing, as was done in January of the present year. The executive committee meets during each of the other months of the year. At its February meeting the executive committee centered its program on the plans for the city• s application to be included in the model neighborhood demonstration program. To obtain fuller citizen participation in each new urban renewal project added to the Atlanta program, the main Chairman of the Citizens Advisory Committee appoints an associate committee in the project area. Chairman of this associate committee meets regularly with the full committee and the executive committee. The committee's e x ecutive director meets with the associate committees and attends citizens meetings in the project areas. The committee conducts citizen tours of present urban renewal projects and areas being considered for future projects. Groups from 40 to 75 citizens are thus given a first hand view of slum conditions. These tours are conducted all through the year , averaging at least one a month. �During the first two months of 1967, such different groups as two Georgia Tech classes, a Georgia State college class, the provisional members of the Atlanta Junior League and a women's club in an area adjacent to the model neighborhood target area were taken on tours by the Citizens Advisory Committee in conjunction with the Atlanta Housing Authority which is the city's agent for urban renewal. The Citizens Advisory Committee is supported by public contributions and a matching fund from the city. It is staffed by an executive director, who is a former TIME and LIFE staff writer of 25 years experience and a secretary. The chairman is Robert L.
