Georgia Options, Inc was founded in 1991 by a small group of family members, people with disabilities, and other citizens concerned about the well being of adults with disabilities. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to serving people with disabilities and their families in the Northeast Georgia area
In 1992 we began offering supports to five people and have gradually grown not only in numbers of persons served but also in our understanding of quality supports. Georgia Options is unique in that all people we serve live in their own homes. We help them choose where 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 a 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.
Georgia Options was created following the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, a federal act barring discrimination against persons with disabilities in public accommodations, private employment, and government services. Georgia Options represents the letter and spirit of this law by supporting persons with disabilities in all aspects of community life.
Georgia Options hopes to be a leader for the future in the delivery of community support services to people with disabilities. We receive funding primarily through Medicaid waivers and supplemental state funding, however private contributions are meaningful and greatly appreciated in our mission to provide for the people we serve.
