Miller Project Director I. DESCRIPTION The Atlanta Foster Grandparent is directed locally by 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 at Grady Memorial Hospital with funds from a private Foundation, and in June funds were recieved from another Foundation to finance four additional grandparents at the Georgia Regional Hospital, making a total of 41. IT. PROGRESS AND PROBLEMS Statistics: 1 resignation, due to ill health 1 replacement employed in September 15 applications have been received, but have not been processed. Screening and training orientation classes are planned for October. 40 days absence due to illness 32 clinic visits were 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 Carrie Steele-Pitts Home. 2i6 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 place- ment 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 four-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 made fancy aprons which they sold at the Fair; the money will go to the Club treasury. The Atlanta Project was highly honored to have the Commissioner on Aging, Mr. John Martin visit us on July 10th. He talked with the grandparents working with their children and commended them for their contribution. He stated that this was the first project he had seen in action and that he was very im- pressed with what he saw. He promised to 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 pro- foundly retarded children assigned to grandparents, and told of the dramatic progress made by many of them since the grandparents started there in April. He said that the hopsital is very anxious to get more grandparents, and that funds have been requested from the Georgia State Director of Mental Health. Letters requesting foster grandparents have been re- ceived 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 parti- cularly needed since we are affiliated with the Retardation pro- gram at Georgia Regional Hospital. These requests will be con- sidered for 1970 and referred to the Advisory Committee. .

Mitchell Chairman Fulton County Commissioners of Roads and Revenues 165 Central Avenue S.W. Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Mitchell: We are now proceeding with reorganization of the E.O.A. Board of Directors in accordance with the attached memorandum which was cleared with the Fulton County Commissioners and Mayor of Atlanta about a year ago. Originally, the Fulton County Commissioners appointed seven board members, the Mayor of Atlanta appointed seven, and the County Commissioners and Mayor together appointed jointly a fifteenth member to serve as Chairman. Later, under requirements of OEO, twelve elected representatives 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 Fulton County, Mrs. Lucy Aiken, Mr. Harold Benson, Mr. Jessie Hill, and Mr. John Greer will continue to serve unless Fulton County wishes 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 re- placed 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 I was an appointee jointly of the City and County and since there is no longer provision for a joint appointment, the Mayor has asked that I continue on the Board as one of the four appointees of the City along with Rev. Joseph L. Griggs, Mr. A.H. Sterne, and Rev. M,L. King. As to the other four City appointees, Mr. William L. Calloway will prob- ably be continued on as a nominee of the Community Council of the Atlanta Area, Inc., Dr. John Letgon will reti#é from the Board in recognition of a nominee selected by the Board of Education, Mr. W.H. Montague is deceased, and Mrs. Ann Woodward will probably be nominated by the Board of Education as its 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 their time and talents to our local anti-poverty efforts. The support of the Fulton County Commis- sioners and the the Mayor and Aldermen of Atlanta and the wisdom of your choices for members of the Board have had considerable impact on develop- ment of the local program into what has been recognized nationally as one of the best. We hope to merit your continued interest and help. Sincerely yours, Boisfeuillet Jones Chairman EOA Board of Directors cc: Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. City of Atlanta Senin ntti aaa tae at ttt

Atlanta, Georgia 30318 Dear Mr. Millican: The Atlanta Beautification Corps Project was a component program of the Atlanta Concentrated Employrment Program sponsored by Econornic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc. It provided for hiring of about 40 poverty area people who could © not otherwise qualify for City employment (because of age, health, etc.) and using them for street cleaning and other similar duties in the Sanitary Departrnent, The program has been funded for over a year on a reimbursable basis by HOA. The City has paid the workers $1.60 per hour and the supervisors $7,275 ner hour and each month we have billed HOA for the amount expended, You will recall that budget cutbacks at the Federal level caused HOA to advise the City in March that it would no longer fund this program after April 30, 1969. We prevailed upon the agency to continue funding the program at one-half the previous level through August 31, 1969, and the Finance Committee approved City funds to continue the whole program until that date. ‘ The City, therefore, will be required to make a decisicn on this program by early August because it is only funded until August 31, 1969. We have reviewed this question with the City Personnel Department and the Sanitary Division of the Public Works Department. Both of these organizations recommend strongly that the program be continued at least until the end of the year if funds can be made available. A copy of Mr. Ralph Hulsey's letter is enclosed. In order to continue the program until December 31, 1969, in the manner Mr. Hulsey suggests will reauire a rnaximum of $47,000 for salaries. The abnormally high rate of absenteeism in the Sanitary Division this year has caused a surplus to exist in the salary account which could be used for this purpose. The amount could be confirmed by the Finance Director, Alderman Millican Page Two July 29, 1969 , What it boils down to is this. These people want to work and the Sanitary Division sgys they are producing. This is a decision which addresses itself to the Public Works Committee of the Board of Aldermen. I would hope some decision could he made at the Committee meeting Thuisday so that action might be taken at the Monday, August 4, meeting of the Board of Aldermen. If I can be of service te you in helping to resolve this matter, please let me know. Sincerely yours, Dan Sweat cc: Mr. Ray Nixon Mr. Ralph Hulsey

  • Text: June 17, 1969 : Mr. Randall N. Conway Staff Division Memphis Manpower Commission P. 0. Box 224 Memphis, Tennessee 38103 Dear Mr. Conway: I have received a copy of your letter of May 21 to the Atlanta city government relative to the establishment of a manpower policy as well as Mr. Sweat's reply to you. As Mr. Sweat has pointed out, the City of Atlanta, at this point, has no overall official manpower policy. However, I would like to offer the following thoughts from where I see this heading. I believe that most people involved in manpower planning that relates to city government have come to the conclusion that, in a large urban area, manpower planning and policy can not be isolated from the plans to fight urban problems in general. Manpower policies, especially as they relate to inner-city poverty areas, are irrevocably tied to problems in housing, education, transportation, etc. It is my personal belief that an overall stragedy can be and will be developed through the Urban Observatory which is being established through Georgia State College in Atlanta. The Observatory as envisioned here will provide the necessary linkage of the vari academic disciplines as well as with the administrators who face practical problems of implementation on both a short and long range basis. I believe that this effort linked with a strong vigorous imput into the CAMPS system can begin to make some kind of sense out of the present multiplicity of efforts in manpower and other related problem areas. I hope that these thoughts will be useful to you in looking at the establishment of such a policy in Memphis. If I can be of any further assistance on this matter, please feel free to get in touch with me. Sincerely, Clint Rodgers, Associate Administrator for Manpower GCRicaa

  • Text: September 5, 1969 Mr. John Feild, Director Center for Policy Analysis 1612 K Street, N.W. Washington, D. C. 20006 Dear John: In response to your memo of August 20th concerning City action resulting from the manpower seminar which you sponsored on April 8th of this year, I would like to offer the following comments. The City of Atlanta still does not have an official manpower staff financed and controlled by city government. However, Atlanta has a rather unique situation in that the local Community Action Agency has a well developed manpower staff which is serving the needs of Atlanta in a satisfactory manner considering the limitations of resources a- vailable. The City at this point in time will probably continue this relationship on manpower with the CAP Agency unless a major shift in the funding by block grants through the state and/or city by the federal government make a change necessary. The CAP Agency in Atlanta has four identifiable manpower components which are the Atlanta Concentrated Employment Program funded by U. S. Department of Labor with a staff of approximately 120, Neighborhood Youth Corps Out-of-School Program funded by U. 5. Department of Labor with a staff of 10, a Job Corps GATE House Program with a staff of four, and a working relationship with the Atlanta Office of the State Employment Service funded jointly by the State Employment Service and O£O versatile money with a staff of 16. Last year's expenditures on all these com- ponents of the Atlanta area was approximately $4,340,000.00. I hope this information will satisfy the questions that you posed in your memo. Sincerely, Clint Rodgers Deputy Administrator CRicaa CC: Mr. William Allison Mr. Dan Sweat

Allison Executive Administrator Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc. 101 Marietta Street Building Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Allison: _ This is in response to your letter of August 22, 1969 concerning the Atlanta Beautification Corps Program, We have worked out an arrangement whereby these workers can be placed in permanently authorized waste collector positions on a temporary basis until the end of the year. This is possible because of the relatively high rate of vacancies that the City is now experiencing in the permanent positions. Iam advised that the Sanitary Division will set aside 40 of these permanent positions so that the workers can be assured of employment until December 31, 1969. This will, for the time being, accommodate this program until a decision can be made on the permanent continuation of the program. Because of the City's serious financial problems, it is my thought that it will not be possible for the City to finance this program on a continuing basis past December 31, 1969, It would be my hope that EOA, Inc. could locate some funding source for the program past that date. Sincerely, Iwan Allen, Jr. Mayor IAJr:ja

Parham Executive Administrator Ivan Allen, Jr., President Allen Foundation, Inc ° ~\Q 29 Pryor Street, NE ; Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Allen: ' . This is a direct appeal to Atlanta area civic clubs ‘and -July 16, 1959 philanthropic foundation thought to have some concern fox the welfare of the young people living in our community. Through my work as EOA consultant in mantal retardation and special education I have become aware of the large number of mantally retarded children residing in EOA target areas who are not receiving adequate services from area agencies responsible for the care of these children. Many area children have never received service from any agency. To me, this is an incredible Situation. Perhaps as a professional person I have bean too far renoved from reality to feel the urgency of the need these children have for training in self-care skills. After evalu- ating the programs and community facilities for the retardad, I am well aware of the dasperate situation facing these nag- lected children. The public schools can care for only a fractiou of our mentally retarded children; private commanity agencies provide programs for even smaller groups, and’ this leaves most of our children with no programs of any kind. I feel that eacn of the fourtean EOA Neighborhood Service Centers should have at least one program serving from twelve to Fireeen netgnvothoed children. At this time, only four of the Centers have programs and two of those are for the current summer only. Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc., has no funds for this specific area of naed. Their centribution thus far has been in the form of senior Aides, Neighborhood Youth Corps trainees, surplus food comnodities and transportation services provided by individyal Centers. Each Center probably has sufficient | flexible Eonttewes sponsor a neighborhood program for the men- tally retardsad, However, due to tne organization structure Of Sanighinerhsed Sarvice Centers too little time is left before the committment of 1969-70 funds to fully infoxm each group of the urgency of need for this particular kind of service program. This makes it necessary to seek other sources of funds for staffing to insure the extension of some of our established programs beyond this summer. By budget planning time for 1970-71 all Central Neighborhood Action Committees will be throughly familiar with the necessity of establishing neighborhood programs for their mentally retarded children. An additional source of funds for ths soning fiseal year is the Georgia State Department of Public Health - the agency which is legally charged with tha responsibility of providing services for these children. In the meantime, if even a few of the many target area children needing services are to be served, civic organizations, church groups, and private foun- dations need to provide financial support with which to staff neighborhood programs fox the current fiscal year. I firmly believe in the concept of local responsibility for local pro- grams and the situation regarding the care of mentally retarded children in this community is a severe local problem. If I have been smotional I do not apologize. My sense of professional and personal integrity is outraged by such naglect and we simply wast not allow this to continue. Please do every- thing possible to enable the economically daprived areas of Atlanta to staff neighborhood programs for their mentally cetar~ ded children. Enclosed is a copy of a proposal for a small neighborhood program which can be followed by any sponsoring agency with enougn concern for mentally retarded children to initiate action to provide them with the services we take for granted for our own children. I will be glad to maet with your group anytime during tha week to answer any questions you or they might have about the proposal, and discuss ways in which your group might Ne make a concrete contribution to the welfare of our grossly eT neglected mentally retarded children. Sincerely, e aa wpe a? ee Nee Ge tho WS, Ve. pet ** (Mrs.) Jean D. Zorn, /Consultant ‘Mental Retardation / and Special Education Enclosure JIDZ/bh

  • Text: July 1, 1969 Mr. William U. Norwood, Jr. Regional Manpower Administrator U. S&S. Department of Labor 1371 Peachtree Street, N. E. Atlanta, Georgia 30309 Dear Mr. Norwood: Grave concern was expressed at the June EOA Board meeting about the up-coming requirement for ten percent non-federal matching funds in our next ACEP program year beginning September 1, 1969. Atlanta, like all large cities today, has very limited financial resources compared to its de- mands, and it is extremely difficult for community agencies like BOA to secure additional local cash. As you will recall, the original ACEP proposal allowed EQOA to claim as local “in-kind” the supporting resources of its community action program and other federally assisted agencies providing opportunities for New Careers and NYC trainees. With this now disallowed, and assuming current funding levels, EOA faces a need to generate approximately $200,000 in non-federal share, At present only about $88,000 of “in-kind” seems clearly available, leaving a potential non~federal deficit of more than $100,000. Atlanta, being the regional city that it is, finds that the best New Careers training slots, with promising salaries and upward mobility potential, are with federal or federally supported agencies. Likewise, the youth component (Operation Ready), by virtue of being tied in with Project Value, spon- sored by the Department of Defense, is in the same situation. While this is a happy circumstance for the individual en- rollee, it poses a dilemma for those who must find 10% local resources to match these costs. Page 2 Mr. William Norwood duly 1, 1969 ¥ Because of the above factors, the EOA Board would like to request that the U. S. Department of Labor grant a waiver on our New Careers and Operation Ready components allow- ing us to claim as local in-kind the participation of federally supported agencies. We understand that such action is possible and that there are similar precedents. Your favorable consideration of this request will be greatly appreciated. Sincerely yours, Oe a Jones, Chairman Board of Directors /oxr ec: /mapon Ivan Allen Mx. Dan Sweat Dr. Charles Hicks

I believe a residential program will be essential if a Skills Center is to serve young women from ex- tremely 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 Center could be negotiated. We feel strongly that the Skills Center must provide a meaningful opportunity for 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 presents a program that is relevant to the needs of the people we serve. Sincerely, VA Clint Rodgers, Associate i. 4 Administrator for Manpower
