COMMUNITY ACCESS GROUPS

Creating opportunities for integration

Making Community Connections

Community Access Groups help individuals with developmental disabilities connect with the community, engage with their peers, and participate in a variety of enrichment activities, with topics including art, music, and wellness. These programs help improve socialization skills, and provide avenues for meaningful community participation.

Meeting Community Needs

Community Access group participants have the opportunity to volunteer in the community. By donating their time, they are helping to solve shared problems, strengthen their community, and improve the lives of others. Some of our volunteer opportunities have included:

*Habitat for Humanity Re-Store
*Meals on Wheels
*Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia
*Union Mission
*YMCA
