IndependenceWORKS

Our ultimate goal at IndependenceWORKS is to integrate our clients into the surrounding Atlanta community, to enrich their lives through meaningful activities and programming, and to care for our clients at a level of excellence.

IndependenceWORKS is a comprehensive day program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We serve adults with mild to moderate intellectual and developmental disabilities ages 18 and older. We are a community-access day program. This means we focus on building connections within the surrounding Atlanta community through community outings and events. We also believe everyone, no matter your ability, can be involved in “Tikkun Olam,” the Jewish phrase for “repairing the world” by involving our clients in volunteer opportunities around the greater Atlanta area.

Our 8,300 square foot IndependenceWORKS building opened in March 2017. We have many activities available on days when our clients do not go out into the community. Our state-of-the-art building contains an art room, vestibular movement room, music room, library, lifelong learning classroom, computer lab, a community giving garden, teaching kitchen, and an all-encompassing sensory room. We also provide Clinical Oversight for our clients.

Additionally, we have in-house programming and adapted curriculum within our daily routine. We use the New-2-You curriculum as a guide for daily living and functional learning. We also have community volunteers visit our center monthly to lead cooking lessons and gardening activities to enrich our clients’ lives. Available to people of all faiths.
