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.
TELIC CARES TEMPORARY RELIEF FUND!
APPLY FOR TEMPORARY RELIEF TODAY! Telic Empowerment cares about YOU! We are excited to be able to launch our Telic Cares Temporary Relief Fund! Thanks to a generous financial gift from a private donor, Telic Cares will be able to provide temporary relief to special needs families, in the areas of finances, food, or medical, in times of crisis. Each potential applicant will be carefully selected, and a specific, individual need will be met, based on the application received. Each family will be briefly interviewed and proof of the existing need will be required.
DONATE TO OUR FUND! You can help us provide for special need families thru your donation to Telic Cares Temporary Relief Fund. A one time donation of any amount is appreciated. A recurring donation will help us provide support to a family each month. 100% of your donation is tax-deductible and will go to help a family in need.
