Company Overview

Tommy Nobis Center (now a subsidiary of Nobis Works) was founded in 1977 to serve individuals with disabilities in Metro Atlanta. In 1975, Bobbie Knopf was chair of the Department of Special Education at Northside High School. She began a needs assessment dialogue with Joyce Slaughter, the mother of one of Bobbie’s students. They soon realized that the options available for students with special needs after completing high school were limited, so an advisory board was formed. Having heard of Tommy Nobis' commitment to the Special Olympics, the board approached the Atlanta Falcons All-Pro linebacker for support and named the project the Tommy Nobis Center.
