Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
ISDD was founded in 2004 to promote health equity among children living in social and economic disadvantage with or at risk for disability. This mission is accomplished through research, education, and community service and support programs.
Research & Education:
Advancing the knowledge of the relationship between disadvantage and disability is accomplished through BREAK THE CYCLE, a collaborative interdisciplinary research and training program to cultivate leadership in children’s environmental health disparities. The target populations are communities where the environmental hazards are related to circumstances of social and economic disadvantage.
Community Service & Support:
HEALTHCARE WITHOUT WALLS: a medical home for homeless children is a comprehensive community-based, medical home model which addresses the health care needs of children who have been homeless. This model is being expanded to veterans with children (Healthcare Without Walls- Veterans) and is a template for improving the health and well-being of children all over the world who suffer from a state of homelessness.
Project GRANDD is a community-based support program for grandparents in the Metro Atlanta area who are raising grandchildren who have disabilities, chronic illness, and behavior or learning difficulties. Project GRANDD provides group educational meetings, monthly support groups, home visits, individual case management and practical help where needed.
