Welcome to the Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities
Welcome to GCDD. Our website offers you many opportunities to stay informed, connect with our network of friends and join our journey toward developing Real Communities.
Launched in 2010, the Real Communities Initiative is our award-winning signature concept that is receiving national attention for its innovation and diversity. Real Communities provides cutting edge, intentionally inclusive activities throughout the State with a focus on projects that create opportunities for all people - with and without disabilities - to work together as full partners in the social life and civic development of their communities.
We support grassroots efforts and community activities to promote inclusive neighborhoods throughout Georgia, where each person has the opportunity to contribute and experience Real Homes, Real Careers, Real Learning, Real Influence and Real Supports.
