BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:
Silver Lining Special Day Service and Training CenterLilburn, Ga
ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:Silver Lining SDS’s main goal is to enhance the lives of adults with disabilities by working on their strengths without focusing on their disability.
We also find jobs for those that want to work.
We volunteer in the community to help build their job skills, social skills, and life skills. Our vision is for each adult participant to gain training to be able to live a life of fulfillment that they could be proud of.
THE STORY:Silver Lining SDS was started 2 1/2 years ago. I worked in a pediatric doctors office for 20 years and always thought my life was going to be around the children. As I watched the children grow to become adults my focus grew more towards the special needs community. One beautiful young lady, in particular, stands out. Her mom was an older lady and would sometimes ask what would happen to her once she was unable to care for her daughter.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS / ACCOLADES / AWARDS:
ROADBLOCKS AND CHALLENGES:Not struggles but lessons. I always believe “there is more than one way to skin a cat”. If it doesn’t work one way, try 1A.
SUCCESS:Success is when you feel fulfilled. When you can go home at night knowing you poured into someone else. When you know in your heart you gave it everything you had.
The worst part of success is when you overwork and never take time for yourself, mentally, physically or emotionally.
