“Is there a quote about living in these homes that we can put here?”

Beginning in 1997, Special Needs Cobb worked in partnership with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to construct 23 Group Homes for special needs adults in Cobb and Bartow counties. SNC, with the help of its generous donors, pays for the maintenance and upkeep of these facilities. These are “homes for life” for our 92 residents, who range in age from 18 to 85. Approximately 40 percent of our residents are orphans or have no family connections and need SNC to keep a roof over their heads.
Our SNC Respite Home is Cobb County’s only facilities-based respite program for special needs people. SNC built the Respite Home and maintains it with the help of the community. This one-of-a-kind program meets a critical need by providing a caregiving break for special needs people and their families.
