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.

Everyone is entitled to fun, friendship and independence and this is exactly what somewhere like Lindsey's Place provides. It allows young people with disabilities and those volunteering a space to grow and express themselves without fear of failing. Consequently, every success should be wished for them, and any help given to them.

My son has been able to go to camp the past several summers. We should all help out so that ALL KIDS have the opportunity to go to camp.

Lindsey's Place is a great place for physically challenged youth to connect with each other and feel like they are not alone in this world. LP provides an rare opportunity for physically challenged youth - it provides a place for them to be themselves, without being stared at, asked rude questions, or generally excluded. LP is one of the only places of it's kind out there, and it's desperately needed.

I beleive Lindsey's Place is providing a much needed service in our society and the dedicated people that make this organization run should be commented. I just wish that I lived in the Savannah, GA area so that I could volunteer my services at the camp sessions. My hope is for Lindsey's Place to grow stonger each year.

Lindsey's Place is a exceptional organisation for people with varies disabilities, this establishment offers a range of support that gives disabled people the same equality and freedom the you and I can access anywhere, a price should never be put on fun or happiness but for some people that just has to be the case as there just isn't the space or facilities to do so, not only would I work there I would be more than happy for my nearest and dearest to go there.

I am honored to write a review to help this campaign! It is everyday people who make nonprofit agencies like Lindseys Place thrive. I wish everyone at Lindseys Place all the best for the future! You have my continuous support and will be kept in my prayers. You dont have to have or know a child with special needs to understand the importance of what places like Lindseys Place can do not only for the child but for the family as a whole.

Having worked for the people behind Lindsey's Place at Southampton Fresh Air Home, I have experienced first hand the team's dedication and passion for enriching the experiences of young people with disabilities. My time there was the most magical and eye-opening I have ever known. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Lindsey's Place will build on this experience and passion and be a truly fantastic place for young people with disabilities to go, to be accepted, and to have the most amazing and unforgettable time.

Lindsey's Place provides a wonderful benefit in a field that is been lacking for far too long. This group serves a wonderful cause and will be the leading program in what I can only hope will be a growing service. We need more places like this!
