The Cobb/Douglas CSBs are public agencies created by state law to provide mental health, mental retardation, and substance abuse services. The service areas of the agencies are Cobb County and Douglas County, Georgia. The agency supports over 300 people in competitive employment. The majority of funds utilized to provide services are generated through a contract with the State of Georgia, Medicaid and Medicare revenue, Vocational Rehabilitation, and grants. The agency's goals are: consumer preference; work initiatives; and the expansion of the availability and access to natural community supports through the reduction of stigma. The CSB has phased out sub-minimum wage and sheltered workshop programs over the last four years and is actively involved in two Office of Disability Employment Policy Grants:
1) Customized Employment
2) WorkForce Action.
In addition, the CSB is a Project EMPLOY partner.
The focus of the supports is personal choice, self-advocacy, self-determination,
and competitive employment.
