Georgia Options, Inc. is an Athens-based non-profit that supports
people with disabilities to live in their own homes and have typical life experiences.
Georgia Options is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving people with disabilities and their families in the Northeast Georgia area. Founded in 1991 by a small group of family members, people with disabilities, and other citizens, Georgia Options began offering services in 1992. Our organization supports people with a broad range of type and degree of disability, such as intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities, and autism. Since its founding, Georgia Options has touched the lives of more than 100 adults with disabilities and their families.

What makes us different?

Georgia Options is unique in that people we serve live in their own homes. We help them choose where they want to live, with whom they want to live, and how they want to live. Personal Companions assist people, providing support at varying levels, ranging from a few hours a day to 24/7 support. Our dedicated companions provide one-on-one support in all areas of the person’s life, enabling each individual to pursue his or her hopes and dreams, to be active in the community, and to live the best life possible.

How are we certified?

We maintain the highest level of accreditation with The Council on Quality and Leadership and are licensed as a private home care provider through the Georgia Department of Community Health.
