Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Camps, Centers to Support the Independence of Specific Populations, Children & Youth, Developmentally Disabled Centers, Disabilities, Human Services, Sports, Youth Development Programs

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.

Lindsey's Place was founded by wonderful people who put smiles on the faces of children and adults with special needs. It is an inspiration to watch the volunteers interact with the campers and provide them with an unforgettable experience.

Lindsey's Place is amazing! Every child deserves to feel like they belong and are loved for who they are. Lindsey's Place does that and so much more. Thank you Lindsey's Place!

I have worked with young people with Special Needs for 15 years. I cannot stress enough the importance that Lindsey's Place holds for the lives of these individuals. Organisations for able bodied young people are readilly avaliable and those with Special Needs can be overlooked. I understand that this is especially the case in the South East where Lindsey's Place is.
At Lindsey's PLace individuals can experience a wide range of activities adapted to their needs, they can socialze, make friends and most importantly feel valued and equal to any other. Such experiences can stay with them for a lifetime, enhancing general quality of life by raising confidence and self esteem.
It is also important to comment on the benefit this organisation has for the families of these young people, providing much needed respite and comfort in the knowledge that their child or sibling is being cared for so well.
Lyndsey's place began as a vision and that vision is now a reality. I hope that they are able to continue and grow.

Wonderful charity to help benefit those who need it the most...outstanding work of love for these poor children who aren't as fortunate as most children and could use the support and build-up of their self-esteem!
