  1. A Navigator Team works to strengthen families, especially those with disabilities, through a countrywide parent-led volunteer network. Navigator Teams help to find or develop resources to meet the unique needs of their county. They serve as a point of contact in the community, work in partnership with local leaders, share their knowledge of local resources, and provide guidance to other families. Navigator Teams are a project of the Parent Leadership Coalition under the supervision of Parent to Parent of Georgia. The Navigator Team is a diverse blend of parents, educators, medical professionals, and community leaders. Each team has: * Leader- who oversees the activities of the local team. This person serves as the main point of contact for each Navigator Team. * Core Members- the working members of each Navigator Team * Members- attend meetings and help plan events or receive information * Resource Network- refers to agencies or other interested parties that collaborate with Navigator Teams on activities or events and may also provide technical support as needed. A Navigator team can help just about anyone. Families who have children with disabilities or special health care needs, professionals, therapists, or anyone who has or needs information can contact a Navigator Team in their county. The support given can be a one time contact, on-going support, or an avenue to empower the individual to get involved in the local community. All teams have access to resources from Parent to Parent, The Governors Council on Developmental Disabilities, and the other agencies that are the Parent Leadership Coalition who support this statewide project. Your input can affect change in your community. Getting involved with a Navigator Team will allow you to be better informed concerning issues of disability. and needs of local parents and families. Donation of your time, money, or goods for a project is a great way to get involved. For Paulding County Local Contact Information, contact Navigator Team leader, Cindy Duncan at 770-861-5704.

  7. Still adding contacts to the database if anyone knows of anyone else.....
  8. I had them in 2000.. and when there was such a hype about what would happen, the mail was doing crazy things and they did not get my check on time.. they cancelled me. I tried to explain the situation to them and the customer service was TERRIBLE. I cancelled just because of their attitude. I prefer to use someone local that I can look at and get a decent response when I need it.
  9. I wonder if this is the same woman that came into our shop a few weeks back and said she really needed to wash some clothes... there were several of us women in there that started giving her money...
  10. Sage... he is PRECIOUS! I am so happy for you all....
  11. I think that's called rising about ugliness.... but don't you relish the thought that you KNOW they say mean things about you... and how stupid they look when they smile and pretend they are saints???? I think they forget that God himself knows the intent of the heart and nothing slides by him, whether it's in private or is public... He's the ultimate judge and jury! What goes around, comes around....
  12. It made me smile, too! Sometimes it's good to be reminded of our blessings and how sweet the small things really are and how big they can seem to other people....
