Developmental Disabilities (DD)

CCS’s original mission was to serve adults with developmental and physical disabilities such as
Autism, Cerebral Palsy and Down’s syndrome.

Today, our program continues to serve these adults who yearn for successful independence and have so much to offer their community.

CCS provides case management, life skills training, social outings, assistance with medical and recreational needs and ongoing support. We find “host” home providers who become extended family, and in cases where the family of origin is the caretaker, we provide support to enable loved ones to thrive outside of an institutional setting.

With one out of every 100 children in our nation diagnosed with autism, CCS recognizes that this population will need support as they grow into adulthood, especially once their families are no longer able to meet their special needs.

Nathan was discharged from a Regional hospital in Winter 2013 and moved into a CCS host home in Southeast Atlanta. Nathan lived in an institutional setting for over 25 years with limited to no family contact. With the help of Intake, SOAR, Family Consultant, Supervisor and host home providers, Nathan was able to to integrate into successfully into a home in the community.
Nathan has grown tremendously since transitioning out of the hospital and gained a new family. He has had the opportunity to go fishing, bowling, play instruments and meet new people in and around his community. Nathan continues to blossom and become more independent daily with the assistance and support of his CCS team.”

Our adults with developmental disabilities are placed in host homes. Much like foster homes, these host families provide care and a home for our adults who might otherwise be forced to live in an institutional facility. We are always recruiting for additional host home providers. The more providers we can recruit, the more adults we can accept and provide support for!
