The Recruitables

by Eric Pudalov, Community Events Coordinator

As of today, our new Facebook Cause, Creating Opportunities for Developmentally Disabled People, has 4 members and growing.

In a meeting we held this morning, we discussed the idea of having a contest to recruit people to the new Cause. Although this idea is still in the works (read: no prize yet!), we definitely expect to be making it official in the next few weeks.

Keep in mind: the idea behind the Cause isn’t really to raise money, although the option to donate is open. Most of our funding, of course, does not come through Facebook. The Cause’s purpose, once again, is to spread our message and network with like-minded individuals and organizations.

And with “Creating Opportunities,” we will improve on the original Cause by keeping it updated more often and linking it to our homepage and other relevant sites.

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.
