Georgia Pines Decatur Seminole Service Center (GPDSSC) is dedicated to Service, Pursuit of Excellence and Respect for Human Dignity.
The mission of GPDSSC is to empower people to achieve their personal goals. The centerís philosophy is that all persons should have access to high quality services and supports in the least restrictive, expeditious and accessible manner.
The services offered at the Center are for the enhancement of daily functioning, to assist people in achieving skills necessary for successful community living, facilitate work skills and empower people to achieve personal goals.

The Service Center is accredited by The Joint Commission (JCAHO) and supported by the Bainbridge-Decatur County United Way, Inc.
Community Based Services
Community based services are designed to enable people to achieve the highest degree of presence and participation in community living. Services include community access, prevocational and supported employment.

Participants take part in community activities such as the Bear Cats' homecoming parade, Christmas parade, Bike Fest, Martin Luther King Day parade, Relay for Life, and other activities. We currently have two teams of people receiving tennis instruction from the city recreational department, and have begun a bowling team at the YMCA.
Supported Employment
Services assist people in attaining fully integrated, competitive employment in businesses in the community. On going support facilitates the adjustment of the person to the work setting and to employment responsibilities.

Aside from supporting people to become employed in the community, the Center also employs people on 2 yard crews that provide services to the city of Bainbridge and the bainbridge Housing Authority.
Day Services
Day services are provided for people who could benefit from training and supports in the areas of daily living skills, recreational skills, socialization, theraputic exercise, and pre-vocational training.
