Hickory Log is a personal care home for men with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Hickory Log celebrates its 48th birthday this year. Hickory Log was formed by a determined group of parents who had children with disabilities and passionate members of the community who believed in the vision that persons with disabilities could do more. They believed these young people could learn, work, and be productive members of the community. What started as a day opportunity to engage these young people grew into educational and vocational opportunities in several different areas around Bartow County. The success stories spread and soon parents and families of young adults with disabilities wanted to send their loved one to Bartow for the training opportunities.
This same group of founders realized that the old Pauper's Ranch home which was built in the 1920's was no longer being used and it seemed a perfect fit for day opportunity, agricultural training, and supported housing. Soon, the old home was welcoming its first residents. In 2002, the old home was bid farewell as the residents moved into the new home. Our current home has capacity for 23 men and offers dormitory style living.
Hickory Log offers supervision, meal preparation, goal setting and training opportunities, community access, medication and medical needs management, & financial instruction & management. Hickory Log is located less than 10 miles off I-75 in beautiful NW GA almost halfway between Atlanta, GA and Chattanooga, TN.
Hickory Log is private pay for residential services and accepts Participant Direction Medicaid Funding Payments as well as Family Support Funding for Community Access Individual and Group Services.
