I will lift mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made the heaven and earth. Psalms 121
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Fulton County COVID 19 Emergency Rental Assistance Program
Eligible Fulton County residents living outside the City of Atlanta can apply for emergency assistance for rent and utilities (water, gas, power) resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Residents must meet eligibility requirements established by the federal government, including:
• One or more individuals within the household has qualified for unemployment benefits or experienced a reduction in household income, incurred significant costs, or experienced other financial hardship due, directly or indirectly, to the COVID-19 outbreak;
• One or more individuals within the household can demonstrate a risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability; and
• The household’s income is at or below 80% of the area median income.
Households affected by unemployment for 90 days or more, households with incomes at or below 50% AMI, and households with documented eviction will be prioritized.
By applying for the Fulton County Emergency Rental Assistance Program, you may be evaluated under the guidelines of Emergency Rental Assistance Program I (ERAP I) or Emergency Rental Assistance Program II (ERAP II) based on the time your application is processed and the funds available under either ERAP Program at that time.

Our health focus for the month of September is Alzheimer's disease and our goal is to educate and increase awareness of this devastating disease. Dementia is an umbrella term for a collection of symptoms caused by disorders that affect memory, thinking, behavior and emotion. Alzheimer's is the most common and affect 50-60 % of people with dementia and is the leading cause of disability and dependency in the elderly. Our amazing brains are made up of 86 billion nerve cells. Dementia damages these cells so that they can no longer communicate effectively. Risk factors include but are not limited to:
1. Increasing age (age increases risk, but dementia is not a normal part of aging)
2. Family history (Per the CDC, 20 genes affect a person's risk)
3. Gender (women are at higher risk- reasons are unknown)
4. Hypertension, Obesity, Diabetes
5. Physical Inactivity (150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity is recommended)
6. Head Injury
7. Hearing Loss (research has shown that people with hearing loss have a significantly higher risk
Symptoms of dementia include:
1. Loss of memory
2. Difficulty finding right words and/or understanding what people are saying
3. Problems with concentration, planning and organizing
4. Difficulty performing previously routine tasks
5. Personality and mood changes
6. Disorientation in time and place
There is currently no cure for Alzheimer's but healthy behaviors which prevent type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer may also reduce or delay the onset of symptoms. According to the CDC 2 large, long term studies indicate that a nutritious diet and increased physical activity may help.
Modify your behavior by:
1. Quitting smoking
2. Maintain a healthy weight
3. Maintain a healthy blood pressure
4. Increase your physical activity
5. Maintain healthy blood sugars
6. Get enough sleep
7. Stay socially engaged
As we age, our brain changes and we may become forgetful but Alzheimer's and related dementia is not an inevitable part of aging. If you have symptoms consult your doctor as soon as possible. There are vitamin deficiencies (B-12), medical conditions (hypothyroidism) and infections that can mimic dementia. Early diagnosis and intervention may delay symptoms and give you and your family time to prepare.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time
Casting ALL your care upon Him, For He cares for you
1 Peter 5:6-7
