Orange Grove's services and programs are designed to meet the needs of the whole person, from health and dental care; residential and transportation; training and employment; to enrichment services and retirement services.
The types of programs and services we offer are influenced by a number of factors, including the changing needs of those we serve; availability of more opportunities in the community for employment, volunteering, and leisure and recreation activities; more information and better understanding about the particular challenges faced by many of those we serve; and the legislative and regulatory framework in which Orange Grove must operate.
We offer comprehensive health and dental care services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Community-based services describes both a department and the guiding principles we've followed since our earliest days - that every individual we serve, to the extent possible and desired, should have every opportunity to work, play, and volunteer in the community.
Our goal through employment support is to match jobs with every individual who wants to work. Our job developers and job coaches work hard to ensure the success of both the individual and the employer: the individual by providing all necessary supports, the employer by helping them meet their business goals through their employees.
The Family Support program serves children and adults with severe disabilities by providing funding for services and supports that are not covered by other resources.
Through our Georgia services, we serve adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Floyd, Gordon, Murray, Walker, and Whitfield counties.
