PLAN of Georgia is a non profit organization based in metro Atlanta that was created by families to help other families challenged by a common concern:
How can we best plan for the present and future care of a family member living with mental illness or developmental disabilities?
PLAN of Georgia works with families to provide the best quality
of life possible for their loved ones in the present and
throughout their lifetime.
We assist individuals 18 years of age and older with severe and persistent mental illness; those with intellectual disabilities; and the at-risk elderly (i.e., people over 65 who are experiencing compromised functioning, impairments in thinking and memory and organization difficulties.) We provide continuity of care through care management, which includes coordination and connection to vital resources, ongoing monitoring and advocacy. We help provide medical, financial and social stability. PLAN works with the existing service providers to provide excellent care for your loved one. We help you take back the role of family member versus caregiver.

PLAN of Georgia can also serve as your Trust Advocate. If your family member is a beneficiary of a trust, the role of Trustee can be complex. PLAN’s care managers have a one-on-one relationship with their clients, and a deep understanding of their needs. This allows PLAN to help Trustees by providing guidance and expertise including how best to use trust funds to care for the person, and what other resources may be available in the community. If you don't have a trust set up, but would like to, PLAN can also connect you with attorneys and Professional Trustees who can work together to put a Special Needs Trust plan in place.
