Mrs. Paschall reported that she had the following information from Mr, Collier Gladin, of the City Planning Department about the Model City Program (of which these areas are parts): The meeting held earlier with the Mayor, etc., were to inform the people that Atlanta would apply for the program and tell what the program would be; the application submitted on March 13, 1967 was for a grant of $500,000 for planning: if this applica- tion is approved, the city will receive the $500,000 probably around May 1, 1967, and it will take about a year for the planning to be completed; during the year the re- sidents of the area will be completely involved in meking the pbans for the areas; no plans have been made yet but it is expected that the final plans will emphasize rehabilitation of existing residence and as little tearing down as possible.

  • Text: Some Facts About Admission To Highview Nursing Home . 2800 Springdale Read S. W. Atlanta, Georgia 30315 Highview Nursing Home is a privately operated, non profit philanthropy, governed by a self-perpetuating board of directors. (It is not under the direction of county officers). Service is limited to bona-fide residents of Fulton County and, to a lesser degree, DeKalb County. Application for admission is made directly to the administrator's office at the home. It is not necessary to have the endorsement of recommendation of friends or public officials. Acceptance of a patient is determined entirely on the basis of eligibility, need and availability of space. Application is made on forms provided by Highview, one of which is a medical report and diagnosis to be made by the applicant's physician. Medical examination and judgement is required in order to determine whether Highview can properly serve the patient. Because this community does not hawe adequate nursing home facilities, there is a considerable waiting list for admission to Highview, and acceptance is usually slow. Critical circumstances surrounding a patient are considered. Often it is best a patient be placed in any nursing home where space is available, pending a vacancy at Highview; and this will not lose the patient's priority for Highview admission. Other factors affecting admission: Some patients floors are restricted to women, some to men; and a vacancy on the men's ward will not provide a bed for a woman on the waiting list. Some space is appropriate only for the care of ambulatory patients. About two-thirds of the space at Highview is devotd'to patients whose financial circumstances require as- sistance from public welfare sources; and this ratio is maintained in considering all applications, Also the ratio between DeKalb and Fulton residents is maintained. The officers of Highview are concerned that the services of the Home be made available to the community in equitable fashion. Our sole object is to serve those who need this care. However, our maximum capacity is only a fraction of the total need, and it is impossible to admit many who wish to enter here. Our most unhappy task is to deny those for whom we can- not find space. 7/1/64 Abit 7 Lleek Harold T. Ward Administrator xXERO XERO copy | copy

As you probably know, effective January 1, 1967 all GEO funds for Recreation were cut off, This left us high and dry in an attempt to operate three distinctly different and vital programs; namely the neighborhood playlot program (which has grown to approximately 21 lots), city-wide Operation Champ summer and recreation job opportunities for youth and last but not least the very vital arts and craft and recreation program for the senior citizens living in high rise apartments. Not only are we hard pressed to continue to operate these programs but we arelielng called upon by BOA to pick up and carry on projects that they have had to cancel because of the cut off of Federal funds. As specifically relates to Mr. Eddie Murphy, he comes highly recommended and endorsed not only by you but Mr. William Fowlkes of the Nash Washington Center and a way probably can be found to provide funds for the employment of this fine man. He met with me Friday, February 24 at 2 P.M. to scuss the job in detail.

I attended the meeting at Orchard Knob Recreation Center, which Mr. Leftwich attended, and I am sure he has given you the details on it. Mrs. Bdge and I have agreed to stay in touch and she will arrange a meeting of a small group of Negro and white residents of the neighborhood, who already know each other, and will make some plans about future activities. I have talked with Mr. Haver and Mrs. Peters, generally, and about their March 9 meeting, which I plan to attend, and for which I hope to be able to provide helpful information. We have not had time yet to move into our office in City Hall, but hope to be there within the next week. After that, we will be better situated to get into ongoing programs. Thank you for your interest in the Commission and for referring these astters to us. I feel that we have been able to be of sesistance and lool} forward to developing this kind of service in our community.
