Coastal Center for Developmental Services, Inc.

 

Coastal Center for Developmental Services, Inc. has been an active part of the Coastal Georgia community for decades.  Recognized throughout the state for providing quality 



services and creating meaningful, innovative work opportunities for adults with 



developmental disabilities, CCDS continues to grow.

 

With its nationally accredited programs – Community Employment, 



Organizational Employment (Quantum), and Community Access (Day 



Habilitation) – CCDS offers a variety of choices for more than 320 adults 



on their individual roads toward independence.

 

With skilled staff 



providing needed supports, the people in our programs receive personcentered guidance as they work to achieve their own goals.

Under the leadership of Executive Director Kathy Thomson, the staff receives annual and 



program-specific trainings to stay current on the best possible methods and practices to 



enhance their service.

CCDS boasts a staff where nearly half has served at the agency for 



over 15 years, and several have committed to working more than 20 and 30 years!  This 



dedication strengthens the knowledge and relationships among staff members, individuals 



served, and their families. 



The Savannah community has embraced CCDS.

 

Area businesses have hired over 150 



individuals in community jobs; universities provide student volunteers; corporate and 



private donors funded the CCDS Community Garden; businesses offer off-site training to 



Day Habilitation Program participants; industry leaders hire mobile work crews; CCDS 



events are held at popular locations across town; and much more. CCDS is often the 



catalyst for individuals wanting to immerse themselves in the community around them. 



CCDS hopes to empower the people it serves to the fullest.  In 2011, it created its own 



empowerment campaign – MePower – and challenges everyone to do what they can to 



empower someone.  The MePower Philosophy sums up our beliefs and practices:

JUST THE FACTS AREAS OF PARTICIPATION

Community Employment (WORK)

Individuals are hired by businesses in the community, earning 



at least minimum wage.  Job coaching and long-term support 



ensure  that jobs have the potential of turning into successful 



careers.

Day Habilitation (COMMUNITY ACCESS)



Designed for individuals with lower skill levels and a need for 



more supports, this program’s aim is to involve everyone in 



their own community. Speech, physical, and occupational 



therapists are on-site weekly working with staff and 



individuals in the program.

 

Quantum Catering (WORK) 



Workers learn basic food preparation skills for agency meals 



and catered meals ordered by businesses, civic groups, and 



individuals in the community.

Quantum Packaging Assembly (WORK)



Companies like Oneida, International Paper, and Kennickell 



Printing contract with Quantum to produce work by a



deadline.  Workers fold and fill boxes, adhere labels, perform 



quality control checks, shrink wrap, palletize, and more. 



Supervised mobile crews work off-site at businesses.

 

Quantum Printing (WORK)



Individuals complete customer orders in silk-screening, foilstamping, button-making, and ribbon-making.  There may be 



use of the manual production press, tunnel dryer, and 



washing tub.  Other tasks may include typesetting, button 



making, and folding shirts.

 

Quantum Specialized Assembly (WORK)



 Gulfstream Aerospace and JCB contract with us to complete 



electrical and non-electrical assemblies.  Tools (pliers, wire 



strippers, crimpers, etc.) are used to create complex 



assemblies on jets and vehicles.
