Dear Mr. Landers:

ALBERT E . HORVATH
Thank you for taking the time yesterday to discuss
the matter of utilizing a city facility or structure
in our proposed Day Care Project.
EXEC UT IVE D I RECT O R
As I mentioned, the major function of Senior Citizen
Services in the community is to survey the needs of
older persons, work with other groups to improve
services and to inaugurate new services when and where
needed. All of our study and inquiry focuses attention on the following need -- a plan of services to
assist older persons who want to remain in their own
home or apartment rather than move into an institutional facility, but who cannot safely do so without
certain supportive and protective help.
Senior Citizen Services is proposing to establish
such a plan of services .
One of the key elements
in the plan is a Day Care Center where the partici pants can receive personal care during the daytime ,
enjoy varied activities , eat a nourishing , well balanced meal and in other ways be reinforced and
suppo r ted in their desi r e to be independent pe r sons
r athe r than someone ' s burden .
The p r oposal outlining this plan, which we a re s ubmi tting fo r fundi n g und e r Ti t l e IV of th e Older
Ame r i c a ns Act, wi l l b e s trengthe n e d o r weakened
dep e nding u p on our abil i ty t o prov i de a physical
facility as part o f the local sha re of the cost of
the proj e ct.
�2.
We are turning to the city of Atlanta and to the
Mayor's office for help with this problem and are
hopeful that the city might be able to join with
us to demonstrate a new and useful service.
Best personal regards.
Sincerely,
Albert E. Horvath
