Address:

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.

I endorse Lindsey's Place as a learning and nurturing environment for individuals who have so much to give. It's a place for them to learn to ignore the limitations placed on them by others - to develop and explore their own potential. A place for fun and companionship; for dares and successes. The staff encourage independence and self-determination - two of the greatest gifts we can offer one another.

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

Give them more money.

Lindsey's Place is an excellent venue for kids with disabilities to be themselves in a normal environment. All these kids want is acceptance, and Lindsey's place provides that opportuinity. Lindsey's Place creates an environment of warmth and love, and that is the exact prescription for its kids!

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

Stop spending money on war and direct those funds to health research

Lindsey's Place gives so much more than a place- it provides a sense of belonging, gives people who have disabilities a place where they don't feel different from everyone else. Those feelings can last forever, not just while they are at the camp.
Lindsey's Place has been having fundraisers, trying to raise enough money to have a permanent site that has all the things that they have dreamt of for the wonderful people that attend these camps. The people involved have such a giving heart, and I hope they can raise enough money to have a huge place for children and young adults with disabilities. Everyone deserves a sense of belonging, and of purpose and with the right equipment they can make it possible for the campers to have fun and exercise at the same time.

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

I see the pictures posted of camps in the past on facebook.

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

What would you tell others about this organization?

That the founder has a disabled child herself, so she knows the struggles, and she also understands that even though they might not be able to communicate very well they still enjoy swimming, swinging, etc.. And we need a place for special needs people to be able to ENJOY themselves.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
