Mission: The mission of Lindsey's Place is to enrich the lives of children and young adults with special needs by creating a residential experience that promotes self-esteem, self- confidence, and independence. Our focus is to provide experiential programs that promote personal growth in a nurturing environment that is challenging, creative, social, and positive.

Results: We have begun our capital campaign to move forward with a facility of our own. Fundraising supports have grown in the few years we have existed and community involvement is growing. With 3 successful weekend camper sessions, we have served approximately 21 campers, with a high rate of returning campers. Our 4th weekend is coming in April with hopes to host up to 12 campers.

Programs: As funding permits, we offer weekend residential camp programs. We hope to grow and become a year round facility.

I have been involved with two events with Lindsey's Place in the past year. You can tell from all of the hard work and devotion of the board members and volunteers that this is an amazing group of people. I will not hesitate to volunteer my time to this organization again. I know that the time and energy we spend that every bit of it goes to help a child's life.

I was able to visit the spring camp at Lindsey's Place this past September and it was very heart warming! The children are all so happy, the volunteers and counselors are happy and the nurses are happy! The camp director and counselors have so many fun activities planned for the children! It put a permanent smile on my face to see the smile on the faces of all of the children, volunteers and counselors. My husband and I were very blessed to have a daughter that does not have any physical or mental disabilities and I took her with me to the camp. I knew that she would not say mean things or look down on the kids as her great aunt has disabilities, but I was not sure what to expect. Within an hour, she made best friends with a camper that is in a wheel chair. They sang songs together, painted together, laughed and played together! My daughter held onto her new friends wheel chair as they were "walking!" I immediately had chills all over my body as I watched my child look past the disabilities and loved this child for her heart and personality. Lindsey's Place is a BEAUTIFUL place! It is very involved, loving and fun!
I support Lindsey's Place 100% and hope their dreams come true of having a permanent, year-round residential camp in Savannah, Georgia! It's desperately needed!

Lindsey's Place is like nothing else in this area. It provides a camping experience for children and young adults. The things I like the most are that the people involved really care about this organization and the campers. Also, the organization isn't limited to just one type of disability. It is open to people with all different types of disabilities.

It’s so great to finally have a place in the southeast area that affords children and young adults with disabilities a place where they can have fun and enjoy a camping experience like so many other non-disabled individuals. Lindsey’s Place allows young people with all types of disabilities, to engage in camp-like activities that they would normally miss out on. They do so many fun things during camp– they sing, dance, play games, draw, paint, and make new friends. Life can be so challenging and hard for these children a daily basis. If you’re ever fortunate enough to see the faces of these special young people light up while at camp, it’s something that you will never forget. Lindsey’s Place is a wonderful organization. It’s definitely a special place for very special people.

I think it is awesome for this organization to get started in the Southeast. Lindsey is my cousin and I know that she would love to get Lindsey's Place started so she can enjoy being around new friends and everyone at the camp. She used to go to a place like this over the summer and LOVED it. SHe never quite smiling.
