You were so generous with your remarks~ And really, the credit for the successful visit should go to you and others who cooperated in a magnificent manner to make it simply a beautiful trip. You just don't find the "spirit" that Atlanta possesses in any of the other large cities. I had heard from sources here and in Atlanta that you were the person to contact for assistance. Certainly those sources were most accurate. And it was my pleasure to meet you -- and to see firsthand the "proper" way a federal official should be treated. Things could not have been better, and I, as well as Mr. Shriver, truly appreciate your help. Please call me when you are in Washington and we'll get together for lunch. Best regards, fe: ~ - ~l4A ~ ~ l~ ~~ �

Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mayor Allen: The Atlanta Planned Parenthood Association was organized in November 1965 with the main objective to make family planning education and services available to the 50,000 medically indigent women in the Atlanta area. Prior to that time convenient evening and neighborhood family planning services were almost nonexistent in Atlanta. Only through the financial support and encouragement of EOA was it possible to initiate our program of neighborhood services as early as January 1966 and to expand our services so that at the present time we have seven family planning clinics and nine family planning sessions per weekQ Between January 1966 to May 1968 we helped 3,349 new patients obtain family planning services. This means that more than 3,000 families have been helped to achieve satisfactory family living. The executives and personnel of EOA have been most cooperative in financial matters as well as with helpful advice and suggestions. In our dail y contact with residents of EOA neighborhoods we have found all of the staff at the various EOA centers deeply concerned about the residents in their area and unfailingly willing to cooperate in an attempt to be of service and help, P er ry H o mes 1660 Drew Dri ve.

P IOI MARIETTA STREET 13LD6,, ATLANTA> &£0R0IA 30303 TELEf>HONE 525-4-2 62 May 17, 1968 The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mr. Mayor: The attached memorandum suggests a procedure for compliance with new requirements for selection of directors for Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc., the community action agency authorized by the City of Atlanta and Fulton County in 1964, later joined by Gwinnett and Rockdale Counties, and which you have indicated should be continued. The EOA Board now has nineteen appointed members, seven each by Atlanta and Fulton County, one by the two governments jointly, and two each by Gwinnett and Rockdale Counties. It also has fourteen members elected by the poor, one each from the twelve Neighborhood Service Areas in Atlanta and Fulton County, one in Gwinnett County, and one in Rockdale County. The elected representatives of the poor comprise at least one -third of the Board, as required. The Neighborhood organization has worked well, so it seems wise to retain thes e fourteen area units, with one representative each, as the basic numerical control. The law requires that one-third of the Board be representatives of public officials and agenci es as selecte d by them. This number would be fourteen as related to representatives o f the poor. The memorandum suggests representation that would provide broad coverage of the public interest, including city intere sts such as housing, recreation and youth; county interests such as h e alth and welfare; and other general interests such as education, e mployment, planning and relations. The l aw a l so re qui res that other B oa r d members, up to one- third, be repre s entatives of major private community gr oups or interests concerned with problems of poverty as selected by the gr oups . Public officials in the respective jurisdictions may designate which groups will be invited to select representatives. The memorandum suggests eleven private groups most representative of such community interests. The law requires also that the Board be so constituted as to permit the addition of private community gr oups who feel inadequately represented and �-2- successfully p e tition EOA for membership. Although no such petition is anticipated, it would be possible to add three places to the eleven in the category of community groups without disturbing the r e quired distribution ratio . . The memorandum, prepared after extensive consultation, is our best judgment as to how the EOA Board can meet current membership requirements and best retain the general character and individual representation established by the respective city and county go vernme nts. I shall appreciate your agreement or suggested changes in the memorandum in order that we may present the necessary information for Office of Economic Opportunity approval. Following such approval, I shall wish to consult with you further. Sincerely yours, /f2 . ·; _ . cJG_X ~ ne s Chairn1/an EOA �

P a rham Exec uti v e Ad mini s t rato r December 18 , 1968 TO ATLANTA CIVIC LEADERS: People must constantly ask you, as they ask me, "What can I do?" and "How can I find out what's going on?"

In January many civic, religious and social groups will join EOA in a START NOW ATLANTA campaign to alert citizens to Atlanta's needs. The week of January 12 will be proclaimed START NOW ATLANTA week . I hope that y our organization will be able to participate by planning special programs, visiting Atlanta's slums as guests of poor people, or by volunteering as a group or as ind i viduals . I am enclos i ng brief background ma terial plus information abo u t two p r ograms which will be introduced during START NOW ATLANTA week. Please l et me know i f I c an suppl ~ othe r information.
