A few weeks ago, our agency hosted the Gordon County Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Booster Breakfast. We were honored to be there and speak on behalf of the people we support on a daily basis. And the most amazing part of the event was that, by sharing our mission and, most importantly, our passion for helping individuals with disabilities lead independent lives, our community received an intimate glimpse into what this work is all about. And why it’s so incredibly important.
Mary introduced our speaker and GCRC’s Program Services Coordinator, Brandy. Having their leadership has made so much difference for our agency. It’s not an easy thing to stand up in front of a crowd and speak period, much less tell those people why – in so many words – our culture still has a lot of work to do when it comes to embracing individuals with developmental disabilities. But Mary and Brandy did it with grace and class. And it made people take notice.
Or, it could have been this rocking performance:
Either way, we are truly grateful for the opportunity to connect with our community and we look forward to all the ways – big and small – in which we can help improve the lives of those we support.
Thank you to the Gordon County Chamber of Commerce for allowing us to host this year’s Booster Breakfast. And thank you for all you do in this community!
