Providing You Essential Disability Resources
Living with a disability comes with challenges—some physical; some social. Multiple Choices Center for Independent Living works hard to help disabled individuals bridge the gap between their reality and the life they want to live. Our disability resource center serving Athens, Clarke County, Watkinsville, Atlanta, and Danielsville, GA provides a broad scope of services and programs designed to provide measurable benefit to those seeking help.
Our primary role is as a support system of assisted living for people who need help. We provide everything from information and referrals, to advocacy, to peer support and beyond. We’re also available to help with things like home modification, transportation and even micro-enterprising. Any way that we can help, we will. We exist to provide complete disability resources in Athens, GA to individuals who may have nowhere left to turn or trouble getting the help they need. We help anyone, regardless of disability, from children to older adults.
In addition to resources, we also host programs and provide training to empower individuals. Our assisted living center teaches braille, introduces people to assistive technologies and even provides computer training as a form of job preparation. For our aging customers, we’re available for nursing home transitions to ease the stress of the situation. For younger customers, we’ll help you bridge the gap into adulthood by teaching you important life skills.
