My name is Kimberly Stone-Littner and I am the activities coordinator for the Adult Day Stay at the Twin Towers Life Enriching Communities. I develop therapeutic activities and a social environment for people with a range of medical conditions and disabilities such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer, to name a few. Since November of 2008, I have been organizing, with the help of the Goodwill CARE team members, a volunteer group of their program participants, to visit my facility on a once a month basis. The CARE volunteers come to participate in a scheduled craft activity and enjoy conversations with the elderly clientele. My participants look forward to the monthly Goodwill visits even so far as to prepare a chair for their favorite person to come sit by them during the activity. The room is always filled with excitement at the arrival of the Goodwill volunteers and conversations develop quickly. Because of some of the disabilities my clients have, it is sometimes quite difficult to encourage them to join in an activity or to be social. This is when the Goodwill group benefits my program the most; even the shyest of persons seem to open up when these two groups come together! I have often stood back on some moments to watch in enjoyment as a group of people with an array of ages and disabilities interact without judgments. Wouldn’t it wonderful if we were all that way? We thank the Goodwill CARE group for taking the time to visit us and share their warmth and unbridled joy with our group. We hope to keep this relationship continuing for years to come for the well being of the whole!

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

my professional role as an activities coordinator for Twin Towers as well as a mom to a participant in Goodwill’s CARE program.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful! The Goodwill volunteers have been a joy to the residents I serve at Twin Towers and the staff of the Goodwill CARE program have been outstanding in the services they provide to the individuals they support.

I am a case manager for Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries. My job is to assist homeless Veterans to reintegrate into society. I am able to accomplish this task with the guidance and support of my supervisors, as well as the collaborative effort of the team of case managers and other staff at Ohio Valley Goodwill. Having once been a homeless Veteran myself helps me to better understand the specific needs of my clients. It was an Ohio Valley Goodwill Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Project case manager who helped me to get back on my feet. Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries specializes in assessing people’s strengths and attributes, nurturing strong professional relationships and putting people to work.

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

every aspect of my life.

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

not change anything.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with a great bunch of people.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

top notch.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build a satellite office in down town Cincinnati.

Ways to make it better...

I had found Goodwill a decade earlier.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The stream of homeless Veterans that will be coming home after our latest conflict.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I haven't had the opportunity to work with people of this caliber since I was in the military.
