L&G Support Services, LLC was established based upon the premises that "no one should be left behind" which includes children, adolescents, and adults. The acronym stems from Louise and Georgia. Louise was a fine lady. One today would diagnose her as intellectually disabled. She was shunned from some within her family, but was a very valuable player with raising her child and grandchildren. Georgia, her sister, whom resided with her for 92 years, also assisted with raising those grandchildren. Together, they instilled a lot of valuable tools needed to survive such as honesty, treating others with respect, and never giving up regardless of the trials and tribulations that may be encountered.
Disability, whether mental or intellectual, is an every day trend that some find difficult to cope with. Together, the three "grandchildren," LasChae, Vickie, and Makel bring a wealth of knowledge working with those with intellectual disabilities, mental health disorders, at-risk youth and their families.
The cliché that "It takes a Village to Raise a Child" is very true. From this, LasChae, Vickie and Makel developed the motto "Helping Hands Make A Difference." Working together to create change for our youth requires collaboration and communication amongst those involved.Over the years, their work within the Human Services Field, has made them realize that mental health continues to grow and the need for appropriate services continues to remain a concern. Their philosophy "Quality over Quantity" is very important within the premises that "no one should be left behind."
For people with mental illness, social exclusion is often the hardest barrier to overcome and is usually associated with feelings of shame, fear, and rejection.
It is clear that mental illness imposes a heavy burden in terms of human suffering, social exclusion, stigmatization of the mentally ill and their families. Unfortunately, the burden is likely to grow over time as a result of ageing of the global population.
The team at L&G Support Services, LLC is committed to each individual involved in our services. Our highly qualified staff holds the same principles and values as their founders. It is our goal to give others the necessary tools in life to promote change.
