For the July Brownieland Volunteer Project, we participated in the Pebble Tossers volunteer opportunity with InCommunity, a nonprofit organization that provides care and support to those with developmental and intellectual disabilities (IDD). InCommunity supports community members with activities and experiences that make life purposeful such as career training, education, fitness programs, artistic exploration and spiritual pursuits. The Brownieland Team wrote Thoughtful Notes for InCommunity clients and staff. Sending thoughtful notes helps those who are working hard to support individuals in their homes and those who are being cared for who long for a sense of normalcy.

In 2014, enAble of Georgia and Georgia Community Support and Solutions (GCSS) began working in partnership, joining two extraordinary groups with the same mission to provide quality support to people with developmental disabilities. The coming together of these two purpose-driven teams resulted in an exciting new organization: InCommunity. The name, InCommunity, describes its mission as partners dedicated to enriching and sustaining the lives of individuals with disabilities, their families, and their communities.
For more than 40 years, InCommunity has built an outstanding reputation in Georgia for innovative programs and willingness to take on challenging support situations for people in their communities. Currently, InCommunity’s employees provide all levels of support in the community to people with a variety of needs, including residential support, employment services, respite care, family support, in-home care, and day programs. To date, InCommunity has provided support and services to more than 10,000 Georgian community members. Find out more about InCommunity here.
