January 26, 2023 – Tommy Nobis Center (TNC), a Marietta-based nonprofit that helps individuals with disabilities enter or return to employment, will be moving its headquarters to a new Cobb County location. Currently located at 1480 Bells Ferry Road in Marietta since 1992, Tommy Nobis Center has provided education, training, and employment to people with disabilities for the last 45 years. The current facility has been sold and is being leased back while the purchased property at 240 Interstate N. Parkway undergoes renovations.
The new building, formerly occupied by the Cobb Chamber of Commerce, will be better suited to the services provided by TNC and position them to serve more people in the hub of surrounding businesses. TNC is in the early stages of launching a capital campaign to help support the transition. They expect to relocate by early 2024.
“Our current facility has so much history and sentimental value, but it is time for a change,” says President and CEO, Dave Ward. “Our work environment and service focus have evolved over the last several years, and it made more sense to acquire a space that accommodates our changing needs.”
The 25,000 sq. ft. two-story building is situated on 1.7 acres at the intersection of Interstate North Parkway and Windy Ridge Parkway across I-75 from Truist Park. The renovated facility will provide more classroom space for expanding services to students and young adults as they transition from school to the workplace. The relocation will allow TNC to make a greater impact as they look to the next 45 years of service to people with disabilities and our community.
