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.

THANK YOU to EVERY sponsor, donor, volunteer, and attendee, that came out to our free, disability friendly, inclusive, community birthday party event, our ALL ABILITIES BIRTHDAY BASH, on March 24th, 2019, and helped us celebrate our 1st year in business!!

    I saw the segment about your organization on Fox 5 this morning. This a great resource because it was so hard when I moved to Gwinnett County in 2011 from NY. At that time my son with Autism was 16 and my son with ADHD was 12. It was hard and I felt lost. Now they are 24 and 20; I live in Cobb County. I had to do a lot of researching and searching to locate ideal resources. And when my 24 year aged out of the transitional program at 22. It was hard but this year I have finally found resources and plans for this next phase. You have really created a great support and resource avenue.

    Hi, My name is Tekeyah I have a 3yr old son Josiah, I live in Mcdonough,Ga which is Henry county. Due to living in Henry county are we still eligible for the services you all provide ? Also, my son is in the process of being diagnosed, waiting on appointments to see behavioral specialists. Josiah doesn’t talk, meaning he only says about 2 words in total. In my opinion from research I’ve done on my own while waiting to see doctors he displays certain traits of a child with autism. Will that effect being eligible as well ?
