Pickens County Board of Disabilities and Special Needs
This 501c3 non profit was formed in 1972 by a group of Pickens County parents that wanted more for their truly special children and sought a place that would provide support and work skills for them. Today their vision has grown to an agency serving over 500 individuals by providing Residential Homes, Coordinated Independent Living, Case Management, Day Programs, Head & Spinal Cord Coordination, Better Skills Employment, Early Childhood Intervention, etc.
PCBDSN will be the organization of record for The Jericho Project.
