Family Assistance


GA REACH

To learn as much as possible about the experiences of families with Alzheimer’s or related dementia in this region, to reduce caregiver burden and improve or sustain caregiver physical and emotional health. This is accomplished by identifying the areas that the caregiver feels are their most challenging or where they need help and to link families to the resources/programs that are most appropriate to meet their needs. Once the family is invited to participate in the REACH program, they receive coaching in problem solving skills and how to access information and resources to empower them to continue to cope with their challenges even after the program is ended. Participation in the full GA REACH Project consists of twelve home or telephone based sessions, participation in five telephone discussions with other caregivers.

Koinonia Farms

Heart-to-Heart Home Repair: We partner with neighbors of limited financial means to help maintain their homes. Homeowners contribute “sweat equity” by helping with repairs or on a project at Koinonia Farm. Programs for area youth: Activities including creative arts, computers, snacks, sleepovers, field trips, homework help, and outdoor games. Every June, Koinonia Community Outreach Center hosts a summer youth camp. Circle of Friends: Our Thursday morning elders’ gathering is a time to share readings, music, physical exercise, delicious food, classes on health, finances, gardening and more, and to take field trips, as well as to share personal joys and concerns. Peace Action Team: Koinonia, Americus Mennonite Fellowship, and area students, parents, teachers, and neighbors work together to present youth with alternatives to the military despite our county’s severe economic challenges and aggressive military recruitment. Seasonal Employment: Koinonia is usually able to hire a number of neighbors during our annual pecan harvest and bakery seasons. This seasonal employment builds relationships and benefits both Koinonia and the individuals hired.
