Updates to Our Homepage

by Eric Pudalov, Community Events Coordinator

We at GCSS continuously strive to make improvements to our services. In turn, we are doing the same with our website.

Though we feel that its appearance represents us accurately, we have been making greater efforts to keep the site’s information more up-to-date.

If you visit the homepage, at GCSS – Home, you may notice that at the bottom of the page, in the lower right-hand corner, there are now links to our Facebook pages, Twitter page, and an RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed for this blog.

And although we have received positive responses to the video on our front page, we may soon update it to reflect some of the recent changes in our programs, as well as many of the success stories we have to tell.

We have been brainstorming about other “media ideas” as well, including a possible YouTube page (with videos illustrating what skills people are learning in our programs); a site to display artwork created by individuals we serve; and perhaps interviews with some of the staff who keep our program working every day.

Speaking of which, it has been a pleasure to expand our Twitter network recently; we currently have 48 followers, which may seem small, but as we continue to network and hold events, this number will only grow.

If and when we have more video footage related to our events, I may even include some of it here in the blog. Stop by again, and keep an eye out!

About gcsscommunity

My name is Eric Pudalov, and I work as Community Events Coordinator with Georgia Community Support and Solutions, whose mission is to provide creative, life-enriching solutions to people with developmental disabilities and their families. I became interested in this field, however, due to having a disability myself; namely, I had brain surgery in 1996 at age 14, to remove a benign tumor. Following this, I had many difficulties with short-term memory, loss of strength, confusion, and emotional control. Fortunately, at present, I've recovered much of what I'd lost. Despite some setbacks, I graduated high school with honors, and received an academic scholarship to Adelphi Univ., where I earned a BA in Communications. Since then, I've held a number of different jobs and internships, among them a TA position at Sylvan Learning Center, and work as a "Service Leader" with Hands on Atlanta. Since living in GA, I've also been involved with two programs (including GCSS) that serve people with disabilities. My experience has included sharing apartments with adults with autism and other disorders. Though my so-called "limitations" may differ from those of others in the program, these experiences have helped me to realize that people, overall, are capable of much more than we may at first perceive.
