Dan E . Sweat, Jr .
SUBJECT: Model Cities Mass Convention, Inc . ,
and QED Consulting F irm
I appreciate your m mo on this subject dated October 30, 1969 . A I
understand your po ition, you tate that the expenditure to employ thi ·
consultant will be from the proceed of an EOA , Inc . gr nt to Model
Cities Ma e Convention, Incorpor ted (MCMC , Inc .) and, con equently,
the city is in no position to exerci e ny control over which firm that MCMC,
Inc . employ for this work.
I will defer to your judgement as to the technical operations of thi procedur
and l und ratand that the city do
not exercise ny direct control ov r the action of MCMC, Inc . , when city funds are not involv d . My only inter t
i that the city, · nd more p cific lly th Model Cities Program, do
not
uffer ny emb rra sm nt re ulting from the
rd of contr cts by ny Model
City Agency or contractor .
To preclude thi pos ibUtty, Ir it r t my reque t of October 28 , 1969,
that a compl te dos ier be pr par d on QED prior to a deci•ion bein mad
on the award of the contract to th m . Thi do sier hould includ the com•
plet 1i t of the princip l with r um.es of th ir educ tion nd xp ri nee;
r view of their pre nt position
o that ny conflict of inter st can be d termined; some exampl
or r f renc s of eimil r work perform d;
compl te review of th
xp ri ne
nd q lification of th firm to do thh
work:
b udg t nd progr m d igned to accompl h th work d sired, and
ny other Worm tion n c •• ry to make a w 11-inform d d ciaio on th
ca bility of thia firm to ucc ••fully ccompli h thi• wo rk.

This request should be made to MCMC, Inc . , recognizing that the city
does not have the authority to require it but feels that good administrative
practices demand it. When thi information is prepared, a good case can
supposedly be made for awarding this contract to this firm instead of anQther . Should the1·e be any later question, the city wHl be in a m~ch better
position to defend the action. You may be a13sured that the general public
will not di tinguish betwe n MCMC , Inc . , and the larger Model City Program in the event charges of impropriety or c onflict of interest are mad
against the corporation.
My only interest in this project is the well being of our Model City Program .
If the fact
upport the contention that QED is qualified and able to do this
wot-k at competitive prices , I will fully support the award to them . By the
aame token, if the facts indicate that they are not qualified to accomplish
this work, I feel that the award should not be made . In any ev nt, I w nt
us to be in a position to defend the action of MCMC , •no. , even if we are
not dbectly respon ible for the management of the organization.

MEMORANDUM

Dan E. Sweat, Chief Administrative Officer
FROM
Johnny C. Johnson, Executive Director
Model Cities Program
SUBJECT:
Model Cities Mass Convention, Inc., and QED
Consulting Firm
In response to your memorandum of October 28, an investigation
has been made into your inquiry and the following is submitted
for your consideration.
It has been determined that Model Cities Mass Convention, Inc.
requested bids from three consulta nts that would provide management and personnel guidelines for their operation of the corporation.
It appears that the low bidder for these services was a
firm known as QED.
It seems that the firm of Quod Erat Demonstradum was organi zed in
February of 1964 and that the general purpose of the organization
was to provide consultant services in the areas of marketing,
management studies, and public relations . The firm has performed
services for Radio Station WAOK and is involved in a project with
several Emory University professors.
Upon examination of the contract between the City of Atlanta and
Model Cities Mass Convention , Inc., it has been determined that
under the allocation of funds, no provisions were made for consultant and contract services with third parties e xc ept for public
information purposes. (See attached budget justifications) . However,
when combining the budget for HUD and OEO funds, all monies for
training and technical assistance is to be paid out of the OEO
grant and not out of the Model Cities supplemental funds. The
�Memo to: Dan E. Sweat
Page Two
October 30, 1969
hiring of a management consultant firm appears to be a legitimate
expenditure out of the OEO funds since these funds are provided
especially to assist in the development of greater management
capabilities on the part of the directors of the corporation.
Further inquiry reveals that EOA had requested of the officers of
the corporation to submit personnel and administrative policies
as a requirement of their contract. It appears that EOA, and not
Model Cities, would be the final determinant agency with regards
to the sufficiency and qualifications of the consultants.
Item 14 of the contract between the City and Model Cities Ma s s
Convention, Inc., stipulates that all services sub-contracted to
third parties must have prior approval by this office. Our Program Management Division was knowledgeable of the negotiations
and had informed the proper officer that these services were
eligible only under the OEO grant.
I assure you that the staff is fully cognizant of its responsibility to assure that all monies which flow through the Model Cities
Program are spent wisely and effectively, thus are comitted to fulfilling that obligation
Attached for your perusal is a copy of our manual on accounting
and fiscal management procedures. This manual is furnished all
operating agenci es as a guide.
I hope that the above information has been of some benefit to you.

PURPOSE
These instructions prescribe the accounting procedures and
related fiscal requirements to be followed by agencies which
are awarded contracts with the Comprehensive Demonstration
Agency to administer projects or activities as approved by
the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The classification and description of - accounts are the minimum
required by the Comprehensive Demonstration Agency. If the
agency desires to establish accounts other than these prescribed
herein, such accounts shall be established as subdivisions of
the prescribed accounts and should be maintained in such a way
that they can be readily combined into the prescribed classifications for uniform reporting purposes.
ACCOUNTING
The operating agency shall establish and maintain on a current
basis an adequate accounting system on an accural basis in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and
standards.
The accounting system, among other things, must be adequate
to enable the preparation of a statement of financial condition
and a cost control statement for submission to the
Comprehensive Demonstration Agency on a current and timely basis.
All such reports must be received by the Comprehensive Demonstration
Agency time to permit the data contained therein to be incorporated
into the CDA's records prior to the preparation and submission of
its reports to HUD.

•,
INTERNAL CONTROL
The operating agency shall .maintain an adequate system of
internal control. Internal control comprises the plan of
organization and all of the coordinate methods and measures
adopted within an organization to safeguard its assets, check
the adequacy and the reliability of its accounting data, promote
operating efficiency, and encourage adherence to prescribed
menagement policies .
The characteristics of an adequate system of internal control
include:
a.
A plan of organization which provides appropriate
segregation of functional responsibilities.
b.
A system of authorization and record procedures
adequate to provide reasonable accounting control
over assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses.
c.
Sound practices to be followed in performance of
duties and functions of each of the organizational
units.
d.
A degree of personnel competence commensurate with
responsibilities.
An adequate system of internal control contains the following
features:
a.
No person should have complete control over all
phases of any significant transaction.
b.
The flow of work should be from one employee to
another so that the work of the second, without
duplicating that of the first, provides a check
upon it.
c.
Record keeping should be seperated from OP,erations
or the handling and custody of assets, such as:
(1)
The function of receiving cash should be centrali z ed in one pe r son , who should not be conce rn ed in a ny wa y wi th approvin g or cer t i f ying
vo u cher s, a cting a s imp rest fund c ash i er, pr e pa ring dep os it s , making disbur sements , o r k eeping
ac c o un ting re cor ds . I n t h is conne ction, the

c ertif ies vouche r s , o r di s bur ses cash s hould h ave
n o acce ss to the ac c o un t ing recor ds .
- 2-
..
�(2)
At as early a point as possible in the mail
handling, preferably at the point where the
envelopes are opened immediately upon receipt,
all checks and negotiable instruments should
be stamped with a restrictive endorsement, ail
cash items should be listed in duplicate, and
a c9py of the listing delivered to the person
responsible for making bank reconciliations.
(3)
Periodic examination and count or other review
of cash balances should be made by employees
who do not handle or record cash or sign checks.
d.
Physical and mechanical facilities should be used to the
fullest extent possible to insure security and accuracy,
such as using security vaults or safe cabinets and check
writing machines.
e.
Responsibilities should be clearly established and then
accounted for as close as possible.
f.
Where feasible, employees are rotated to various assignments.
g.
Other control features pertaining to cash include:
(1)
All cash receipts shall be deposited as soon
as possible, preferably the day received.
(2)
All cash receipts shall be deposited intact
and for the full amount received.
(3)
Collections and all other funds held within
an office , whether pending regular deposit or
in imprest funds, shall be, where possible, restrictively endorsed and kept under complete
control and under proper safeguards, preferably in a fire r es istant combination safe or
safe-cabinet.
(4)
Uncollectible items and the related documents
shall not be handled by the person making up
d eposits or by the person h a ndling accounts
receivable.
(5)
Persons preparing payrolls or time reporting
records should not handle the related pay
checks.
- 3-
�(6)
The number of bank accounts and inter-bank
transfers ~hould be kept to a minimum. A
single bank account for the agency is preferred.
~-
�BOOKS OF ACCOUNT AND RECORDS
The following is a brief description of the books of accounts
and records considered to be the minimum required for recording transactions relating to the project or activity. However,

its assets and liabilities and to account for project or activity
cost.
i
A.

record a summarization of all accounting transactions relat i ng to the project or activity and to
classify such transact i ons according to the accounts
l i sted i n the project or activity budget.

maintained for the recording of funds received

t he n atu re a nd propriety o f e ach p a yment , a nd s howing
the approval o f t h e p roj ect or activit y d ire c tor or

C.
Jour n al v o u ch ers (or the a gency ' s s u itable s ub s t i tute

E.
A record shall be maintained for each item of
non-expendable property acquired for the project
or activity. Non-expendable property is property
which will not be consumed or lose its identity
by being incorporated into another item of property, which cost $100 or more per unit and is
expected to have a useful life of one year or more.
Grouping of like items, such as chairs, with an aggregate cost in excess of $100 shall also be controlled
and accounted for as non-expendable property even
though the cost of a single item is less than $100.
The record shall include:
(1) Description of the item of property,
including model and serial number, if
applicable.
(2) Date of acquisition
(3) The acquisition cost or assigned value
to the project or activity.

For projects
which receive supplemental funds, costs for each line item for
the Current Period should be listed. These should be broken down
between Supplemental funds and Other funds if the project or activity

For projects t hat do not involve the use o f .Model Cities supplemental funds, it is requested ~hat a total amount e x pended on the
p r oject for the curr e nt period be entered by line item 13 (non-con=

�Start or complete dates for a task wili be considered on
schedule if they are within three weeks of the originally planned
time frame. A variance of more than three weeks in a task should be
reported as described above. Every effort should be made to report
time revisions as soon as they become evident. For example, if it
becomes apparent that some operational phase of a project will be
delayed due to problems in acquiring equipment, this should be reported as soon as it is known rather than at the time the operational
phase is to begin.
The Project Highlights section of the report should be used
to briefly summarize project activity for the month and to list any
unusual cirsumstances concerning the project. Amplifying information
about revised start or complete dates should also be given in this
section. An example of a completed Administering Agency Project

RE:
Requested Contract
Revisions and Disposition
Dear Dr. Letson:
The contract betwe e n the Atlanta Board of Education (Agency) and
the City of Atlanta (CDA) state s that the Agency must have prior
approval by the CDA on any shift of funds that significantly
changes the approved program and/or exceeds 10% of the line item
total from which the funds are being removed or to which added.
The following state ments _indic ~te the action taken by the CDA
with regards to the revisions requested by the Atlanta Board of
Education.
The CDA does not ~pprove the proposed changes in projects ED-005N
and ED-041C. It was proposed that $30,000 be shifted from ED-005N
to ED-041C. The approved original budgets are attached herein.
We are happy to know that only t wo temporary units will be required
thereby reflecting a savings of $30,000.
The CDA approves the proposed changes on project ED-020C, but with
some modification. Th e shi ft of funds proposed b y the Agency
involved $4;ooo being shifted from personnel, with $3,000 added
to consumable supplies and $1,000 added to equipment.
Inasmuch
as this proposed change could not be adequate to meet present
equipment expenditures (as indicated by Age ncy's August Project
Report), CDA proposes that $1,374 be shifted to equipment with
$2,626 going to consumable supplies. This change does not effect
the total cost of the project. This approved budget is included
herein.
�Dr. John W. Letson
Page Two
October 7, 1969
The CDA approves the proposed c hanges in project ED-021C. This
involves removing $5,978 fro m personn el and adding $4,738 for
instructional equipment costs, $40 0 for office equipment, and
$840 for mileage. Also, the number of lead teachers is reduced
from eight to seven in order to create the position of Model
Cities Coordinator. These changes do not affect the total cost
of the project. The approved budget is included herein.
With rega.rds to the proposed changes in project ED-022C, the CDA
app:c oves the additi·on of three · teacher aides. However, the CDA
does not approve the adding of $1,620 to travel. The funds are
to :remain in personnel. The CDA appr9ves the adding of $396 for
tel ,=phone service. Telephone service is included in the space
cost line item. These changes do not affect the overall total
the total cost of the project. The approved budget is included
her1=in.
The CDA approves the changes in project ED-024N. The number of
Extended Day Programs is reduced from five to four, and consultants and contract services will be covered by In-Service Training
funds. These changes allows $49,287 to be removed and to be
allocated as follows:
$16,500 added to food; $12,543 added for
labor; $6,649 added for custodial services; $2,000 added for consumable s upplies; $4,000 added for equipment; $6,768 added for
three additional teachers aid e s; $584 for telephone services;
and $243 added to trave l. The approved budget with costs in the
appropriate line items is includ ed here in.
The CDA approves the changes in pr oj ect ED-025N.
It was proposed
to r educe the number of pre-school progr ams from nine to eight.
This allows additional fund s to be used for food, labor for food
preparation, equipment, custodi a l serv ices, field trips, and
substitute teacher aides. These changes only involve the shifting of funds and does not a l ter the total cost of the project.
The approved budget with costs i n the appropriate line items is
included herein.
The CDA approves the proposed changes in project ED-039N. These
changes include removing $14,813 from personnel, and distributed
as follows: Consultants and Contract Services, $3,000; Travel,
$2,000; Consumable Supplies, $3,500; Rental, Lease, Purchase of
Equipment, $6,000; Custodia l Services, $813. The approved budget with costs in the appropriate line items is included herein.

an election been held in this Area which affe~ted the liv~s of
its residents more directly and significantly than will this one.
In order to vote in the election, residents must be registered
with the Model Cities Program.
Registration has been conducted (1) house-to - house in
the Model Neighborhood, · (2) at the centers listed below during

seminar form under the direction of the University of Tennes·s ee
at Chattanooga.
Th e ma jor objective o f the Model Citie s Training
Program is the enablement of the fifty members of the CoDoA.
Board of Directors to function as a cohesive policy-making body
while simult an e ously encoura ging the a t t ainme nt or ret e ntion of

This series of seminars utilizing consultants, applying
dynamic and innovative educational techniques, and involving
expertise from as many pertinent sources as are available is,
like the Model Cities--Program itself, a demonstration project •..
Because there is iittle national experience in training programs
such as the one .described, the emphasis in the Chattanooga program
will -be on experimentation and innovation.
As might be e x pected
of an experimental undertaking, it will be subject to regular
observation, monitoring, and evaluation of its effectiveness in
terms of the goals it seeks to fulfill.
It should be understood
that this continuous evaluative process is a testing process of
the training program and its staff, as ~elL ~s of the participants.
The first session of the program will meet Saturday,
August 9, 1969, at th~ campus of UoToCo as will the following
nine sessions on the following nine consecutive Saturd ay s.
A
suggested structure and content of each session is found in
Appendic es I thru Xo
Each consultant, however, may modify or
restructure the seminar to achieve the objectives as outlinedo
Funding for this training program has been secured under
the provi sion s of Title 1 of the Higher Education Act from the
Department of Health, Education and Welfare; Institution al monies
of U T0C o; and funds from the Model Cities Planning Grant o

The expectation is that the experience and information
derived from the program will contribute signific~ntly to the
effectiveness of the CDA Board as a decisive administrative bodyo
It is hoped, also, _thi;lt from this Model Cities Training Program_
there will emerge a body of knowledge and exp~rience which will
be of . value not only in Chattanooga, but in other cities as wello

OBJECTIVES
The succe-ss of the Model Cities Program to a large degree
depend~ upon the~a~i~!ty and willingness of the CDA Board to
discharge effectively its responsibility as chief policy-makirig
.
body of the Chattanoog·u. Model Cities Programo
As administrators
who are responsible for the planning and implementation of the
total Model Cities Program, CDA Board members must be sufficiently
equipped (1) with the necessary skills, tools, and information
related to all aspects of the Model Cities Program; · (2) with an
understanding of the Model cities Program and its relationship to
city government and other agencies in the urban are--both private
and public; and (3) with me thodology and dyna~i cs of d e cis ionmaking.
To this end, t~e Mode l citie s Training· and Orientation
Se minar Pr o gram i s d es i g n e d:
. 1.
To. insure that . the CDA Boa rd me mbers will be aware of
the ir role s · in the Mode l Cities Program

To p r ovide CDA Bo ard me mbe rs with s u f fi cie nt and re l e vant informa tion c o nc erning the Mode l cities concept
a nd me t h od .
3o
To ins u r e th a t
CDA Board me mb ers are familiar wi th the
Mode l Cities st r u ctu re, both n a t ion a lly and l oca l ly.
�(5)
4o
To provide CDA Board members with pertinent data
concerning the HUD guidelines as related to the
Model Cities Programu
So
To provide CDA Board members with relevant information
concerning speciti6 problems and program areas to be
dealt wi.th in the Model Neighborhood area o
Further, this program is designed to foster competency and
sound judgment on the part of the Board members by providing
them with training exercises and experiences in problem-solving
and decision - makingo
No Board with a ·membership so varied as that
of the CDA Board can effectively discharge its duties and responsibilities unless its members develop a oneness of mind and purpose.
It is the intent of this program to provid·e s~ructured experiences
for the fifty participating CDA Board members--members with varied
backgrounds, wide ranges of e x periences, diffeient levels 6f
educational attainment, and diverse interests--which will enable
·the Board to .function as a cohesive unit ·w ith mutual interests
and common goals; one dedicated to solving the problems of the
Model Neighborhood and its people.
�Re sident Involvement During Planni nq Proce ~s
In December 1967 the residents of the Mod~ l Ne ighborhood Area
selected the s tructure tha t they_ felt would be the most workable and repre sentat i ve o f the s i ~ ne ighborhoods that make up
the Atlanta Model Cities Program. ( see figure on community
structure) .
l•Iass Convent:!.0.1
The Mass Convention is open t o a ll Mode l Neighborhood Area residents. Here the cit:i.zen·s .have an op portunity to hear the progress made to improve their coromunity and to voice their views
on the Model Cities Pro gram. The Mass Convention also guarantees to every Mode l Neighbcrhood Area res ident that all elections that relate_ to the organizatio n o f the Mode l Neighborhood
Area will be conducted in an orderly and democrati c manner.
The Mass Conventio n also symbolizes the idea that the Model
Neighborhood Area is a unified c ommunity with many similar
· as·s ets and liabilities in each of the six concerned neighborhoods.
Executive Board
The 14 me mbe r Executive Board i s the policy making body in the
Model cities organization. It is c omposed o f six neighborhood
residents .
(One elected representative fr om each of s ix · ·
neighborhoods _within the Model Neighborhood Area).
In addition
to the six citizens , it includes the f ollowing: Mayor of the
City o f At l anta , one citi zen repr esenting the Atlanta Negro
community, one citizen from the genera l Atlanta Community, one
repr esentative from the Atlanta Board o f Education , one repres e ntat i'.,e from the Stai.:e of G~orgia , two Aldermen from the
City of Atlanta , and ~he Fulto n County Commissi on chairma n.
Steering Committee
The 16 merri::)er citizen ' s Steering Committee serves as the Mass
Co nvention when i t is not in session . It ac c epts recommendation s a nd proposa ls from each o f the six n eighborhoods. It
wi ll bring th~s~ recommenda~ions and propo sals to the Mas s
Conventio r:. and t h e Executive Board. The Steering Committee is
also responsible for deve loping a n effective citizen organization in each of the s i x neighborhoods.
It is compo sed of the f our Mass Convention officers, six
neighborhood vice chairmen (one elect e d fr om each of the s ix
neighborhoods) ·a nd six residents who serve on the Executive
Board.
Neighborhood Advisor y Councils
The Neighborhood Advisory council structure is designed to
organize citizens at the neighborhood level •. The residents
decided to use thr ee basic structures of organization. Adair
Park elected it s repr,2sentatives on an area-wide basis.
Grant Park and Peoplestown elected their representatives on a
district basis. Mecr.anicsville, Pitt sbm·gh, and Summerhill
elected its representatives through the block structure.
�The basic function of the councils is to coordinat e all activity in the neighborho0d and to be sure that all operating and
standing committees are functioning at maximum efficiency.
Operating committees
Each of the six neighborhoods has 11 operating commj tt ees for
the following program areas: Health, Ed1_tcation, Welfare and
Social Services, Hou sing, Relocation, De s i .gn and Preservation
Physical Improve ments, Public Facilities, Ernplcyment, Crime
Prevention and Re creation. These commit.tees played a valuable
role in the planning phase of Model Cities Programs through
working with pl a nners in identifying problems ti.nd s uggesting
solutions to solve these problems.
The Operating Committee s work closely with thE: .:leighborhood
Advisory Council so that all proposals from the community will
be coordinated through the council. Membership on th-J Operating Committees is open to any resident of the-neighborhood.
Standing Commi ttees
'J~he St anding Comm.i.t.tees serve a s th e o rga nizational arm for
the Mass Con ve ntion and the s i x nei ghborhoods within Atlar.ta's
Model Ne ighbo rhood Area . There are seven committe e s (Boundary,
credenti als, Nor.ti n.at ions, Pr ogram, Org3 ni zation, Resolutions,
and Con sti tution and By-Laws ) .
Each neighborhood has three
representatives on each committee.
Techni8 a l Adviscry Bo ar d
The purpose of the Technical Advisory Boa rd is to 1:eview the
pl ans of the re s idents and planners, and to offer technical
advice. Members ar e r.epr e se ntatives of various community
organiz a tion s . Total membership is open - ended, allowing the
Model Cities Prog r am Director to appoint anyone who might aid
the program.
�Small-Group Work for Sessi on I of Model Cities Training Program
Elect group l e ader or spokesman Make list of names of participants
Yt'\ t,
~-ff,~ l>~N
Our work in groups of ten (10) has three purposes:
1) to help the participants to get better acquainted with each other;
2)
to help them examine their own thoughts and feelings about the Model
Cities program and their role as board members;
3) · to provide us as planners of the training program with information
about the participants' knowledge, n e eds and attitudes regarding the
Model Cities pr,ogram and the training program itself.
The content of each group session will consist of consideration of three
questions:
1)
" S uppo se someone stopp e d you on the str e e t or conf ronted you i n a
meeting with the question, "What m a kes you think you're qualified
to be on the Model Cities board? 1 What would be your answer?"
2) "Suppa se w e gave each of you a $1, 000 gr ant, to be u s ed in any way
you choo se , to b e tt e r p rep a r e your self for p arti cip ation in the
M od e l C ities boa rd. H ow would you u se the m on e y ? 11
1
3) "Suppose that you
people a re. the Mod e l Cities Bo ar d, and th at
y o u were o ffere d the answe r s . to t hre e (and only three ) questions
about the M ode l N e ighborhood A rea. What three q u es tion s w ould
you as a B o ard ask? "
T h e firs t t w o ques ti ons are to be answered b y e a c h .member of the
group individually. (Group disc u ssion could fo llow the individual answers
if that seems natural. ) The answer to the third question should be
arrived at by consensus of the group.
Total time available for the group discussion is 10 0 minutes, allowing
about 30 minutes for consideration of each question. This is a flexible
standard, however, and if a lively discussion develops around one
question or another, the leader need not cut it off for the sake of
covering all three questions.

�Southside pr oposal - 1
I. PrearnbJ.e
..
Thi s proposal fo r a nursery program of day car e and child development activitiP.s is submitt ed to t he Model Cities Program for consideration
of its merits for fun ding under 1969 appropriation s .
Southside Day Care As sociation has found it necessary to request emergency funding for thi s phase of its progr am because of three recent developments:
1. Southside has recently acqui red the use of the school building previously occupi ed by Pryor Str eet Elementary School.
This facility i s not
only mor e substanti al and more adequat e for an eff ecti ve day program, ; it .
als o increases the c apacity of the c ent er from ni nety- one (91) to over 135
chi l dr en.
2. Wi t hi n we eks of Souths i de's move into its new fac ilities , t he funding agency of its program ini tiated pol i cies which 1) phas ed out all s ervi ces to chi ldren under two years of age, and _2) pr oportlonate l y reduc ed enrollment quotas of all delegate agenci es operati ng day care centers; Sout hs ide ' s quot a was cut fr om ninety - one (91 ) to eighty (80) c hi ldren.
Thus ,
ins tead of being able t o expand its s ervi c es to needy f amilies , Souths i de
has had t o r educ e the number of chi ldren to mor e than fi fty bel ow i ts
capac i t y.
J. I n the two months Souths i de has occupied its new loc ation, i t has
had to refus e chi l d c ar e to more t han sixty children f rom families that
qual i f y for its servic e~ under t he E.
admis sion policies.
o.
Ao ~over ty gui delines that govern
I n mos t ins tances , t hese were chi ldren of mot hers who
were s e_eki ng c hild care in order to
be able to ac cept jobs and ra.i.se thei r
living standards above we lf a:re subs i s t ance l evels.
�Southside proposal ~ 2
<
The proposal outlined in this document will maximize the use of Southside Is facilities.
The center will be able t 'o care for fifty-two additional
children of mothers needing its services in order to work and improve the
economic and pP-rsonal wellbeing of family.
Tte salaries these: mothers earn .-
even at minimum wage levels , will return over $100,000.00 into the economy
of the inner-city.
The public schools will be open shortly. · Surveys have shown that 80%
of the absenteeism in the schools results from older children having to stay
, home and care for the little ones while mother works.
and nursery programs are presently operational.
Southside's preschool
The new openings for day
care services this proposal makes possible would be available in a matter
of weeks.
This . proposa.Lfor ·. the· nurser y pr ogram at Southside, if funded, will
make it possible for Southside to continue to ser ve the ne eds of mothers
wi t h an infant as well as an ol der preschool child needing care; t hes e
mothers-- the ones wi t h the most chi ldren-- are_ usually the ones who need day
care the most.
There is no other major .center offering quality day care
services, -oper a ting ' or proposed, withi n mile s of Southside t hat off ers day
care services to mothers of children from infants t o· school age.
Wit hout
funding, the se mothers will have no day care s ervices available that wil l
release them. for gainful employment.
In addition to re cently acquiring more suitable and spacious facilities,
Souths ide has entered upon a joint venture of cooperat i on with the School of
Education at Georgia State College for the purpos e of developing the center
into an experimental laborator y for the College's students in early childhood education.
The coupling of t he professional'resourc e s of a major school
of education with Southside 1 s four year s of cont inuous experienc e in educa-
�Southside proposal - J
tional day care has important implications: ma.,jor research findings indicate
that educational stimulation during early childhood is the most promising
antidote to educational deprivation brought on by the conditions of poverty.
Research also indicates the importance of continuing the nursery program at
Southside as a part of this project; it suggests that more than
50%of
the
intellectual potentials of the adult is determined by the kinds of learning
experiences he had before he was two years old.
In view of the foregoing facts, the spons ors of Southside Child Develop~
ment Center suggest that no public funds expended can benefit so many, so
directly, so quickly, or so meaningfully, as funds invested in its plans .
for the· .nurser y program outlined
~
this proposal.
No money spent at thi s
time has any greater promise of finding answers to the burden of poverty today, and to its alleviation tomorrow.
