About Rebuilding Together Atlanta
Rebuilding Together Atlanta has an extensive wait list with new homeowners calling in every day. We are a known entity in the community, having been featured on CBS 46 during our Kick Off to Rebuild in January 2019 and Fox 5 during our Rebuild a Block with Lowe's in November. Our October Spectrum Rebuild caught the attention of the Smyrna, GA city council and we recently received a call from a representative, asking about our plans for this year. Our 2019 sponsors are returning for 2020 builds. Most importantly, a recent follow up with a couple revealed the direct impact of our work: after an average of 2 falls each month, the husband reported zero falls a month after we tore out old carpet and installed hard plank vinyl flooring. Additionally, our Safe at Home program is up and running at a critical moment. According to the Georgia Council on Aging, over 50% of all population growth in the state will be in the 60 and over age group. Between 2010 and 2050, the 85 and over age group is expected to grow 306%. The Georgia Department of Health's Online Analytical Statistical Information System (OASIS), shows that from 2015-18, the number of Fulton County adults over the age of 75 who have suffered falls that resulted in Emergency Room (ER) visits has increased each year, from 2,013 (2015) to 2,906 (2018). Over that same time period, falls have increasingly contributed to the overall number of Fulton County ER visits, rising from 11.5% of visits in 2015 to 14.5% of visits in 2018. A great opportunity presents itself here for an AmeriCorps member to take ownership of the Safe at Home program.
