About Us

History of Rutledge

Rutledge Center, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that was established in 1968.  Its purpose is to serve and promote the general welfare of individuals with developmental disabilities that live in Newnan and Coweta County.  We provide services which enhance the development of human dignity and growth toward self-sufficiency.

A thirteen member Board of Directors, which serves in a voluntary capacity, governs Rutledge.  Sixteen staff members under the direction of an Executive Director perform the daily operations of the organization.  All staff have received extensive development training in critical areas of health education, public law, awareness issues, and direct job-related subjects.

Our Philosophy

It is the philosophy of Rutledge to provide the participant access to and involvement with a well-trained and devoted staff that pledge full commitment to meeting the needs of the individual.  The total development of each participant will guide each decision, action, and direction.  Specifically, the staff will be committed to providing:

  • Programs that maximize developmental opportunities that foster movement into society's mainstream.
  • Programs that aid in improving interpersonal relations, quality of life, and skills.
  • Opportunities to integrate into the community through employment, independent living and involvement.
  • Activities that promote family and community involvement, personal development, and self-reliance.
  • Environments that are safe, secure, and supportive.
  • Information and training consistent with individual's interest and needs.
