The Center for Public Representation has been assisting the Georgia Advocacy Office with a supported decision-making pilot since 2018. The Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities is also a partner in this pilot.
The goals of the pilot are to:
- uphold the legal capacity of people with disabilities,
- disseminate knowledge of supported decision-making to stakeholders,
- utilize the structure of Citizen Advocacy relationships to develop supported decision-making arrangements, and
- prevent and overturn guardianships in favor of supported decision-making.
If you would like to learn more about the Georgia supported decision-making project please contact CPR or Dana Lloyd at The Georgia Advocacy Office — 404-885-1234.
