Cobb County’s Original Special Needs Nonprofit Gets a New Name

In 1956, a small group of Cobb County parents fought the prevailing system of the time of institutionalizing children with developmental disabilities, determined that they would not put their kids away. They became known as Right in the Community, a trailblazing organization in the Special Needs community that accomplished many “firsts” to meet the needs they saw. This year, the organization became Special Needs Cobb to reflect its commitment to providing Resources, Respite and Residential services for families right in the community.
