Our Mission: Telic Empowerment is a 501(c)(3) Non-profit organization, that provides disability resources, ,monthly Parent Empowerment Groups, disability friendly community outreach events, education, and advocacy, to special needs families, affected by disabilities, that have children and young adults, from ages 3-30. Our organization primarily targets underserved residents in South Dekalb, Rockdale, and Newton Counties, within the state of Georgia. We aim to empower our families to become advocates for themselves and increase access to necessary services, programs and family supports in their community. With the help of our staff, volunteers, established community partners, and sponsors we equip our families with disability resources needed to access financial, vocational, educational, and medical services. We host monthly workshops and parent support group meetings, and quarterly, disability friendly, community events.
Our Vision: We seek to provide a safe, supportive, and informative community, that will help families, living with disabled children and adults, develop their own pathway to future success.

Strokes For A Cause
Coming again in July 2019, join our annual FREE special needs art class and community building event!! We are looking for special needs children and young adults, ages 7+ who have an art interest, to come out, with a caregiver, have fun, and create original, personal masterpieces. Parents will have an opportunity to mingle with other parents of special needs children and young adults, in a disability friendly, inclusive, community atmosphere. Children and young adults will be able to create unique artwork with an appropriate level of instruction, for their needs, in a judgement free zone. All artwork created will be auctioned off at our 2019 Art of Ability Fundraising Art Auction.
