In Atlanta there are a number of programs that can help people with disabilities live independently.
The Zimmerman-Horowitz Independent Living Program (Z-H ILP) at Jewish Family & Career Services (JF&CS) is a highly individualized, person-centered supported living program that enables people with disabilities to live as independently as possible.
One Good Deed matches community volunteers of all ages to older adults & people with disabilities to aid them with simple daily tasks. The volunteers not only provide companionship and encouragement, they also help with a variety of day-to-day activities. They can prepare meals, spend a morning or an afternoon in companionship, grocery shop, assist with paying bills, run errands, etc.
The Meyer Balser NORC serves the needs of the older adults, in a community program of The William Breman Jewish Home and with funding from The Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta. NORC offers innovative programs and services to help seniors live independently in their own homes to “age in place.”
