Future Home of Adam's Ranch
Subsidy and Financial Assistance
This is the future home of "Adam's Ranch", a dream for a year round community to support individuals with special needs and their families. This facility would provide integrated solutions for individuals with special needs who can utilize therapies to maximize gains in a balanced ecosystem. The life and natural resources found in a particular location are referred to as an ecosystem. They are dependent on each other to survive and, in delicate balance, these lifeforms help to sustain one another in regular patterns. "Disruptions to an ecosystem can be disastrous to all organisms within..." (Geography for Kids-by KidsGeo.com). The vision of Adam's Ranch is to promote impactful solutions that would minimize these disruptions for families affected by disabilities and increase their capacity for a harmonious life.
Consumers with special needs and their caregivers experience a revolving door of provider staff. For economic reasons and staffing shortfalls, many providers had stopped adding staff for family support. In other words, there is s lack of service providers servicing the local area via funding from the Regional Center or other sources. A need has developed for families to have a community to share and enjoy collaboration while taking advantage of community based group activities and opportunity to gain insight into best practices they can implement at home. Ms. Lloyd is determined to reduce disruptions in the care of individuals with disabilities and empower families with the information they need to secure appropriate services in programs and seminars that can be accessed by individuals with disabilities and their families and caregivers. This was the foundation for the birth of Kerrie's vision known as "Adam's Ranch".
Supportive solutions for families can be built and opportunities can be created for families to collaborate with regard to resources and solutions that are available to them that can be implemented at home. In the digital world today, it is possible to share information and solutions remotely, thereby increasing the impact and outreach. As consumers advance through their life stages, professionals provide insight into a variety of interests today via digital tools hoping, one day, to have a facility for in person interaction.
The structure of "Adam's Ranch" would be a 501(c)(3) organization such that grants and contributions can keep this ecosystem balanced and alive while providing funding for families in need of subsidies. We welcome any support or ideas the community has that would enable Kerrie's dream to come true for our entire community of special families.
