Our Mission: Telic Empowerment is a 501(c)(3) parent run non-profit organization, that provides disability resources, monthly Parent Empowerment Groups, disability friendly community outreach events, education and advocacy, to special needs families, that have children and young adults, affected by disabilities, ages 3-30. Our organization primarily hosts in-person events to underserved residents in South Dekalb, Rockdale, and Newton Counties, within the state of Georgia, but serve families across Metro Atlanta area counties and surrounding. We 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 and inclusive community events.
Our Vision: 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.
