Lifelong Inman Park 

Lifelong Inman Park is a committee of the Inman Park Neighborhood Association dedicated to creating Inman Park as a Lifelong Community that accommodates all ages and incorporates the needs of older residents into all aspects of community planning, development and living. The goals and aspiration of the committee are outlined in the Lifelong Inman Park Plan (see below) and are supported by the following community projects addressing the needs and interests of those aging in place and residents of all ages.

Lifelong Inman Park Information and Referral Program

The Lifelong Information and Referral Services Program provides information and support to assist older adults, their families, and others to live healthier and better informed lives including:

Neighbor-to-Neighbor Support 

Neighbor-to-Neighbor is a cooperative system organized by the Lifelong Inman Park Committee to facilitate connections between neighbors with a need and those who are able to assist them. The volunteers can help neighbors with getting to medical appointments, provide meals for those recovering from illness, and even help with managing daily tasks that can be difficult.

Oral History Project

The Oral History project was started as a way to archive the stories from our neighborhood's revitalization in the 70's including the road fight, the preschool formation, Bond Credit Union, and Inman Park Festival. We have partnered with the Atlanta History Center and are currently underway in an oral history project that will last through 2021. If you would like to participate, join our committee or recommend someone to be interviewed please email [email protected]

 

Preferred Senior Housing Model

Recognizing the need for senior housing options in Inman Park and the unique characters of this community, Lifelong Inman Park proposes a model for senior housing that would be specific to Inman Park. See Inman Park Senior Housing Model 

 
 

Lifelong Inman Park Plan

The Lifelong Inman Park plan was supported by the City of Atlanta and the Inman Park Neighborhood Association and conducted by Lifelong Inman Park. The plan, which lays out several recommendations to aid residents so that they can stay in the neighborhood as they age, was voted on by the IPNA in July 2017 .  The four areas of focus are:

  • Lifelong Housing Options
  • Lifelong Mobility and Accessibility
  • Lifelong Access to Services and Information
  • Lifelong Social Interaction
