The PIER Center - Day Program

The PIER Center is designed for individuals who are living at home and need an organized daily program to attend during the week.  This program allows for each individuals experience to be uniquely designed around their hopes and needs. As a Community Access Program, participants have many opportunities to attend community events and to experience field trips, YMCA, parks and other venues in our local area.  We work on many goals including independence, community skills, self advocacy, job development, physical fitness and communication.  We accept private pay as well as “Person Directed” medicaid waiver funding.

Life Enrichment Coach - Erin Cummings

Erin is originally from Missouri but moved to Georgia solely for the purpose of working at PIER. She has a deep passion for people with disabilities and believes they each have a beautiful purpose; she loves helping them discover and fulfill that purpose, whatever it may be. Erin has a degree in Special Education and has worked with adults with disabilities for several years in a residential setting. Her younger brother, Nate, has Autism and ADD and helped her discover her passion and love for this community. He is her inspiration. She feels blessed to work with our adults every single day.

Life Enrichment Coach - Danae Weller

Danae is originally from the beautiful and rainy state of Washington and has loved living in the friendly state of Georgia. Before working at PIER, she did the World Race mission trip with Adventures in Missions and spent the last few years working for the organization. Her heart for loving and serving people is what inspired her to pursue working at the PIER. She graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a degree in Psychology, and had spent many years volunteering with the Special Olympics and absolutely loved every minute of it. She loves every day with our group of adults and continues to be inspired by how they walk out their lives. It is such an honor to be able to support, encourage, and learn from them each day.
