Empowering Underserved Special Needs Families in Our Community

Who is TELIC Empowerment

Our Story & Mission

TELIC Empowerment is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded by four African American moms, each with a child with a disability.  TELIC’s mission is to Teach, Empower, Listen, Include and Care for families with children and young adults with disabilities by teaching self-advocacy, increasing access to local resources, providing monthly supportive and inclusive community programs, building strong partnerships, and educating communities by consulting on disability awareness. TELIC primarily targets families with children and young adults with disabilities, in communities of color, that currently reside in the following Greater Atlanta Metropolitan counties within the state of Georgia: Cobb, Clayton, Dekalb, Douglas, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, Newton, Richmond, Rockdale. Help us expand our reach by volunteering, donating, sponsoring an event or partnering with us today!

Deserving of Gratitude

We’re thankful to all sponsors, donors, and partners that have supported our organization over the years.

I really enjoyed the honest and informative info. Loved the energy of you ladies – keeping it positive. I really enjoyed getting to know other members and seeing everyone.


I just want to say thank you to everyone who made it possible for my family to receive the voucher for the driving lessons. These small steps that I’m taking towards freedom are going to make a huge difference in our family. Thank you for being a part of the process. My children and I are grateful. Thank you so much for everyone who made it possible for us to receive the wonderful gift!


To the ladies of Telic Empowerment, God bless you all! I cannot tell you enough how much you have helped me on this journey. From IEP’s to free pull ups to our Thanksgiving blessing! Your group has given me so much! I truly would be lost without you!
