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.

I am making a donation in memory of a good friend that was a Director of Special Needs. He was the director of our State Support team. This gift to Lindsey's Place is to be used for the children with special needs. Brad had a true heart for children that needed educational help, representation, or just giving his advise of how to better serve the children.

This is my gift to my administrator, who had a unique friendship with Brad. He was her educational advisor, co-worker, and a special friend that made him a special member of her family.

Brad will be forever in our hearts. What a wonderful way to remember Brad!

Lindsey's Place offers a fun and loving environment for young adults with special needs where they can embrace their individuality and be themselves. I think its a wonderful organization. The staff and the directors are doing this because they love it - and you can see the heart and care that is put into everything they do.

There is no other place for children with special needs in the Southeastern U.S. That is a BIG reason I donate to this non-profit!

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.

I was drawn to donate to Lindsey's Place after witnessing the passion of the founder, Kara B., and also after learning of the absolute need for a camp like this one in the Southeastern U.S. where a place like this for children with disabilities is no where to be found.

The people at Linsey's place are extremely dedicated and put forth an amazing effort for the children that they help. I can think of no better cause than the children with special needs and I feel that Lindsey's place is a shining example of what can be accomplished when great people get behind a great cause!

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!

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.
