Physical Improvements at Cobb

Several years ago - long before we could have foreseen something like COVID-19 - A.G. Rhodes began exploring ways to not only improve our model of care to one that is person-directed, but we also began exploring how we could improve the physical environment where our elders live. 
Several months ago we launched a Legacy of Care campaign, and we have been raising funds from generous foundations and donors in our community to help support our plans to build a new home on the A.G. Rhodes Cobb campus and renovate the existing building. These improvements will take some time, but we are excited to begin in the next few months. Read more.

Black History Month Spotlight: Alexis Scott
At A.G. Rhodes, we celebrate the diverse histories, cultures and widespread contributions of our team members, including our board members who advocate for our mission. In honor of Black History Month, we highlight Alexis Scott, a member of our Board of Advisors. 

The legacy of Alexis Scott and her family runs deep in Atlanta, with far-reaching impact beyond the city. In 1928, her grandfather, William Alexander Scott II, founded the Atlanta Daily World newspaper, which was the nation’s first successful black daily newspaper. It also became the first black newspaper to have a correspondent assigned to the White House. Read more.
HeART for Seniors

When COVID-19 hit in March 2020, Katherine Andrews—an eighth-grader at the time—wanted to do something to lift the spirits of those most impacted, including residents living in senior care communities. 

She combined her passion for art and community and created HeART for Charity, including HeART for Seniors, which was inspired by her grandmother’s love of receiving handmade art. HeART for Seniors creates and distributes art to residents living in senior care communities across Atlanta. Read more
