                           The Riverside Residents Association, Inc., is located in Atlanta, Georgia, since 1984,
                                and is a  U.S. registered  501(c)(3) tax exempt / non-profit organization that sponsors

                                The Riverside community is an ethnically diverse, mixed-income community,          
                                                     which is in the process of transformation.

                                community spirit that encourages cooperation, assistance, and respect for all.      
                                     We promote well-being, health, safety, and security in the community.


                                                   Youth Programs

* Youth Soccer Team    
Thank you to Brian Mushimba from LaFarge for coaching 
the teams this year! There are two squads: between 6 and 9 
year olds and between 10 and 18 year olds.
Practice is held every Saturday at 10am at Collins Memorial
Church on Bolton Road.

* Summer Field Trips
Every summer, we organize educational and entertaining 
field trips for community youth. The young people visit 
places in Atlanta and Georgia. They learn about the history 
and economic development of the state. We typically have 
been 30-40 children participating, but there is an annual
increase in the number involved.

* Reading and English as second language
In partnership with the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System
and other community-based organizations, we have volunteers 
who tutor and offer classes in reading and English as a second 
language for our Latino population. As our community is
experiencing an increase in Latino residents, this program 
offers a much-needed service for these new residents.

* Children’s Parties
Children's parties are held on major holidays, including 
Easter, Halloween, and Christmas

                                              Senior Programs
* Senior Fruit Baskets
Every Christmas, various fruit baskets are made for
neighborhood seniors who may not otherwise receive 
anything for Christmas.

* Homecare for Seniors
We help seniors who are in need in our community. 
We employ local residents to help them with such
tasks as light house cleaning when necessary and
bathing up to three times a week.

* Senior Exercise Program
We have an exercise program for all community seniors 
in which we organize walks around the neighborhood 
three times a week, with volunteers to help seniors in need.

                                                                       Other Programs

* Temporary Assistance
To ensure that everyone in our community has basic needs, 
we provide temporary assistance to needy families. We act 
as a community network, to provide residents access to 
government and community service organizations that 
can help them in various ways.

* AtlantasUpperWestSide.com
This site is an attempt to compile the history of
            Atlanta’s Upper West Side,
and try to keep the real history of Atlanta from 
being forgotten. It is also to help educate those
that are trying to shape the future of this historic area.
