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 - Krystle Garwood

Krystle is originally from northwest Montana. She attended bible college in York, England followed by a year traveling the world doing mission work. After returning home she felt God calling her to be apart of Adventure in Missions so she moved to Georgia in January 2018. She loved the work she was apart of at Adventures but wanted to be more involved with her church and community. So she left Adventures to be the Cafe Coordinator at Victory Church and is now a part of the Pier Center family!
