Alicia Day, a participant in the Frazer Center’s Adult Program, had a busy 2016. She joined Frazer’s Board of Directors as an ex-officio member in July after completing a training program led by Georgia State University’s Center for Leadership in Disability. The program, “My Voice. My Participation. My Board”, prepares people with disabilities for leadership on boards and advisory councils. Alicia also received a scholarship to attend the Georgia Winter Institute in Columbus, GA, where she led a presentation sharing her experiences with Supported Employment.
Alicia celebrated her four year anniversary of working as a Greeter at the Home Depot in Midtown where her supportive personality is on full display. She also remained active with area nonprofits like L’Arche of Atlanta and FOCUS. In her free time she enjoyed many of the year’s best movies and continued to hone her bowling skills.
It’s obvious that Alicia is a true community leader. She’s a board member, employee, neighbor, and friend who just happens to have a disability. Because of donors like you, Alicia is afforded the opportunity to dream big and make a lasting impact in her community. Please make a donation today to our annual fund so Alicia can continue to thrive in 2017!
Board Member. Employee. Friend
