The Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities Storytelling Project works to create a platform for people living with developmental disabilities to amplify their experiences of living, working, and being a part of the community in Georgia. Please visit our Storytelling Project website.
GCDD's Telling Our Stories website is now live! Check out the website and read the stories of Georgians with disabilities.

Our Partner: L'Arche is an International Federation dedicated to the creation and growth of homes, programs, and support networks with people who have intellectual disabilities. The aim of L’Arche is to create communities which welcome people who have intellectual disabilities. By this means, L’Arche seeks to respond to the distress of those who are too often rejected, and to give them a valid place in society.
L’Arche’s mission is to:
- Make known the gifts of people who have intellectual disabilities, revealed through mutually transforming relationships;
- Foster an environment in community that responds to the changing needs of our members while being faithful to the core values of our founding story; and
- Engage in our diverse cultures, working together toward a more human society.
