    In July 1967, a small group of local citizens recognized the need for services supporting older adults in Athens and surrounding communities. Their efforts led to the creation of the Athens Community Council on Aging. Beginning with visitation and recreation programs utilizing volunteers, the Athens Community Council on Aging has developed into a private, non-profit organization providing 14 aging service programs to 25 counties in Georgia. Each year, ACCA provides direct service to more than 7,000 individuals and engages more than 200 volunteers.

    In 1996-1997, the ACCA applied for and received grants from the Northeast Georgia Regional Development Center for the Grassroots Arts Program. This collection includes the papers associated with these projects.
