Group Effort of Tennessee, Inc. Jobs: Overview

ABOUT US

Group Effort of Tennessee believes that every person should have an opportunity to live up to his or her full potential. To that end, we offer a program of diverse services exclusively for adults, age 18 and over, who are intellectually disabled. These services focus on providing care that respects the dignity of every individual and each one’s right to enjoy a healthy and fulfilling life.

Caring for the intellectually disabled presents special challenges because often, these adults also have health issues. The situation varies from one individual to the next. Some may be able to work, some may not. Some may require intensive care while others may only need guidance or assistance.

We want each adult in our program to receive the maximum benefits based on his or her specific needs and goals. That comes from creating a support plan that is customized to fit the person rather than making the person fit the category. Group Effort encourages the greatest possible independence for adults with intellectual disabilities. Our goal is to help them become members of the community through employment when possible and social interaction. We want these adults to gain a sense of fulfillment and self-worth through their contributions to society.

The definition of a good life may also vary from one adult to another. That’s why Group Effort places great importance on listening and learning what that individual values. We also listen closely to those who know that adult best: the family. What are his or her likes and dislikes? What is the usual routine? What problems have been encountered? What things are on the wish list?
