Community leaders, local business owners and committed supporters form our Board of Directors. Our Board works tirelessly to further ConnectAbility’s mission and build a better community.
We are currently working on updating this section of our website! Be sure to check in soon to see our full board and the reason they connected with ConnectAbility!
I became familiar with the mission and objectives of ConnectAbility through a Leadership Lumpkin project that I was involved with that led to a great partnership between Leadership Lumpkin, ConnectAbility and the Lumpkin County government that resulted in the new accessible playground being built at Yahoola Creek Park. Through that process, I had the opportunity to understand the tremendous programs that ConnectAbility has and also a sense the organization is accomplishing so much to help families out. I wanted to get more involved and contribute to ConnectAbility and now will have the opportunity to work with some amazing people through my involvement on the Board of Directors.
Director of Community Connections, ConnectAbility Inc.
As a Director at Glisson Camp and Retreat Center, I have had an opportunity to see first hand the way campers and their families have benefited from a week of respite. I was drawn to ConnectAbility because it provides that sort of experience for folks every month of the year and does so with dignity, intentionality, and stellar volunteers. The goals of our Sparrowwood program at camp and ConnectAbility both demonstrate our desire to highlight that we are more alike than we are different. I became a ConnectAbility volunteer and found that it’s like a piece of summer camp- full of laughter, fun, community, and encouragement…and who doesn’t need more of that?!
