Issues: Children & Youth, Disabilities, Human Services, Sports

Location: 35 Romerley Rd W Savannah GA 31411 USA

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.

My 20 year old grandchild has attended Lindsey's Place weekend retreat twice now and has moved to a new level of being without Mom and Dad being there through the night. The staff is well trained and the venues have been great, especially the one just held in Savannah. I was able to enjoy my weekend and sleep without any concerns for her well being.

My Grandchild attended the camp.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

My only thought would be that there should be older typically developing teens attending camp also as a way to find and teach future caregivers and healthcare professionals.

I know the person who inspired this camp and how much she benefitted from attending one "up north" before. I hope everyone will support it with their gifts and time as something that is unique and much needed in our area run by top notch people solely dedicated to improving the quality of life of adults with disabilities.

Lindsey's Place is amazing. I truly admire the dedication of the founders and the staff at Lindsey's Place to making life better for youth with special needs. Many programs for young children target school readiness or academic achievement for children, while sometimes placing less emphasis on childrens' social-emotional needs. Children with special needs for a host of reasons (e.g., dealing with societal stigmas) are even more at risk than other children for developing negative social-emotional outcomes ; therefore, it is so important that places like Lindsey's Place exist to create an environment for special need children, where they can be themselves and interact with peers who have encountered similar issues during their development.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I am inspired by those at Lindsey's Place who work so persistently at making life better for children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it available in more locations because it is wonderful!

The southeast needs a camp for individuals with disabilities where they can socialize and enjoy activities. The organizers of Lindsey's Place can make that happen. This camp could make a difference in the lives of so many.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The organization is actively raising funds for the camp. The most recent fund raising event was not only well organized, but fun.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

This organization has a solid structure with no changes needed.

Without places like this, we confine our youth and young adults to a life that is not as fulfilling as it could be. Lindsey's Place allows young people and adults to help realize how much life really has to offer, no matter the circumstances that they must face on a day to day basis

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

countless different ways. I see Lindsey and see how truly happy she is around her friends. As her "cousin-in-law", I am so happy to say that se is truly a light in so many people's eyes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

That there would be more funding available.

Having worked with kara in a previous camp for children with Additional Needs I have absolute faith that this organisiation is run from the heart. I, like Kara, had the wonderful opportunity to care for Lindsey when she was a camper herself. That a similar camp is now set up, closer to home, in her own name is perfectly befitting of such a wonderful person with a wnoderful family around her.
The strongest recomendation I can give is that I would happil send my own children into the care of Kara and the talented team around her.
I am now a Depute Head Teacher of a large secondary school. The experience working in a similar camp was invaluable throughout my entire career.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Having worked with Kara in the past I am certain the camp will be run from the heart.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do nothing.
