May is Mental Health Awareness Month! At Griffin Area Resource Center, we believe in the power of support, inclusion, and understanding when it comes to mental health, especially for individuals with special needs. This month, we're shining a light on the importance of mental well-being for everyone, including those in our special needs community.

Meet Carrie, an amazing part of our Griffin Area Resource family! Originally from the shores of Lake Michigan, Carrie brings creativity and compassion to our team. When she's not busy working, you'll find her immersed in her favorite pastimes: spending time with her son, gaming, and developing new adventures in the digital world! After a hectic day, Carrie finds comfort in a steaming cup of coffee on her porch, accompanied by her furry friend, Frazier the pit bull. And did you know? Carrie's dream is to explore the vibrant culture of Hawaii, snorkeling with sea turtles and paying homage to her grandfather's legacy at Pearl Harbor. But what truly sets Carrie apart is her unwavering dedication to animal welfare. As the founder of a local lost and found pets group, she's a true champion for our furry friends! And here's a fun fact: while Carrie may exude professionalism, she has a delightfully goofy side that keeps us all smiling!

Our team member spotlight for March is Maqueca Wilkins, who has been a part of our team at Griffin Area Resource Center for 15 incredible years! Beyond her dedication to us, Maqueca finds joy in precious moments with her family and in activities with the youth group at her church. She grew up in Griffin, GA, and is the eldest of three sisters. When the workday winds down, you'll find her unwinding with a well-deserved glass of wine, which pairs perfectly with her favorite food, Italian cuisine. Fun fact: She is both a night owl and a morning person, and Hawaii is her must-have bucket list vacation! Her favorite movie is 'Memory Keeper's Daughter', and her all-time favorite show is 'Good Times'. Beyond her personal pursuits, Maqueca is actively involved in Meals on Wheels, embodying the true spirit of giving back. Here's to Maqueca and all the amazing individuals she uplifts and inspires every single day!

Meet Kim Byrom! She has been with Griffin Area Resource Center for 15 remarkable years! Outside of work, she's dedicated to her family, cherishing moments with her 4 children and 9 grandchildren, two of whom are currently attending college. From her Georgia roots to exciting travels, Kim's life is a journey that we are thankful brought her to us. When she's not busy spreading joy at work, Kim unwinds with her favorite book, 'Ninety Minutes in Heaven,' and classic movies like 'Home Alone' and 'Driving Miss Daisy.' She's also a morning person who relishes a quiet evening with a great cup of coffee, her favorite creamer, and her beloved dogs, Sassy and Buffy. Kim's passions extend beyond family and work; she's a proud supporter of charities like Kiwanis and St. Jude. At Griffin Area Resource Center, she finds fulfillment in witnessing the happiness on participants' faces as they secure jobs in the community. Fun fact: Kim's love for collecting Santas adds a festive touch to her home all year round! Please join us in celebrating Kim's dedication and love for Griffin Area Resource Center and its participants!

The Medicaid NOW and COMP waivers application is located under resources, important documents at the top of our site. Individuals must be approved for one of these services through the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) before we can begin services. If you are interested, fill out and mail the application to the Region 6 Field Office where you will be put on a waiting list. There is no cost for our program, but everyone we serve has to have this waiver.
