About Aldersgate & What We Do

Aldersgate is a related agency of the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church serving persons with developmental disabilities. Established in 1991, we partner with United Methodist Churches and other individuals, groups and organizations to provide services to the developmentally disabled, their families, congregations, care givers and communities.

Aldersgate, in donor partnerships and assisted by public and private service providers, provides developmentally disabled individuals with safe, comfortable, affordable housing. We oversee residents in independent living residences. Our facilities are located across north Georgia.

Independent living facilities are entirely supported with church, civic, and individual contributions. We help provide housing for adults in roommate situations, accessible to their families, workplaces and public transportation, and encourage community involvement.

Persons with developmental disabilities are underserved. Georgia ranks near the bottom of states in support for disabled citizens. Public funding for housing and services to the developmentally disabled is decreasing, placing these already vulnerable persons at greater risk. This is a stressful situation for those with disabilities and their families, who provide the vast majority of their care. As longevity increases and elderly parent caregivers "age out" of their role as major care providers, concerns for their adult children's future needs arise.

Aldersgate offers hope. Partnering with group and individual donors, we link needed resources to potential residents. We invite you to become a full Supporting Partner or donate as a Sustaining Partner, assisting us to provide residential and recreational opportunities to the developmentally disabled and their families.
