NPU-S Wellness Checks

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, NPU-S is starting a free Wellness Check program. Volunteers will regularly call residents to make sure they're doing well and to see what needs people may have. Initially, phone calls will be made every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but will likely expand as the program grows.

If you're a resident interested in receiving wellness checks, or if you know someone who might, please register at https://www.npu-s.org/p/senior-wellness-checks.html.

If you'd like to volunteer to help with the program, you can register at https://www.npu-s.org/p/wellness-checks-volunteer-guide.html.

If you're having computer connectivity issues, call us at (770) 744-5311 and leave a message, and a volunteer will get back in touch with you.

Take care and stay safe!

Fresh Food Access During COVID-19, from AgLanta

From AgLanta / the Department of City Planning:

"Even during the best of times, many in Atlanta struggle with food insecurity. Even for those more fortunate, being quarantined at home or dealing with an illness in the household can limit your access to fresh food and shelf-stable groceries. At the Department of City Planning, we’ve developed this list of resources for free food and paid grocery delivery. Consider making a donation!

On this page are resources for:
  • Free and reduced-price food access
  • Paid options for food and grocery delivery
  • Information on Atlanta’s Farmers’ Markets"
See aglanta.org/covid-19 for full details.
