Meet Ricky and Darlene F


“It’s the cleanest place you could ever have.”

Life came to an abrupt halt for Darlene and Ricky’s family when Ricky had his heart attack. They were living in rural Banks County at the time, and were told it would be a while before the ambulance could get to them. Ricky actually drove himself to the emergency room, thinking he might die if he waited too long.

Today, through medication, exercise and diet, Ricky's health is much better and hopefully he won't need an ambulance any time soon. But if he does, at GHA he is bare minutes away from medical facilities – including a nationally ranked heart center.

The family is also better equipped to cope with bills since coming to GHA. “When you're on a fixed income, you can at least pay all of your bills living here,” he said. Plus, Ricky appreciates the GHA’s swift repair service. “When you call (the GHA), they come.”

Before his heart attack, Ricky worked as a security officer.

Prior to moving here, the family lived in a mobile home that had been damaged by a fallen tree. The leaky roof made the place damp and hard to keep clean. Ricky says his family appreciates the clean, dry GHA apartment where “everything works.” “It’s the cleanest place you could ever have,” he said.

The family has two children, both of whom take part in GHA summer camps and other activities.
