a P lace for Everyone


t is our goal to assure that the services that are provided through the Charles Lea Center meet the variety of needs that our constituents in Spartanburg County expect of us. With that in mind, over the past several years we have introduced a number of new services and supports with the intention of making sure that we can reach as many people as possible regardless of what their level of need may be. This year is no different.

We have been successful in developing and implementing the CLOUD/Transitions program designed to assist individuals to live in their own home or apartment with minimal supports. We also have successfully integrated technology into our service package to maximize independence. We started a new day program, Seniors Without Walls, which is designed to be more flexible and accommodating to individuals who may not want to go to a day program everyday. We also have expanded our employment program to support individuals who are interested in working in the community and in small business enterprises. Most recently we have been working with the Department of Developmental Disabilities and Special Needs (DDSN) to develop several homes that support individuals with significant medical and health related issues who otherwise would need to be in a nursing home. All these different models really serve one and only one purpose, namely to provide a wide range of service options so that we can support individuals who may need more specialized services in the community. We are proud of the innovations that we have been able to develop. However, they would mean very little unless they had the desired effect of supporting individuals in the way that best suits their individual needs, while at the same time maximizing their dignity and independence.

This year we were asked to present and participate in a number of state, national and international conferences where we had the opportunity to share our stories. While we received a lot of positive responses from these conferences on some of our innovative models of service, we are most proud of the fact that people recognized that our services were focused on improving the quality of life of the individuals we support. Everything we do hinges on one question; How do we support these men, women and children so they can best live a happy and successful life? We could not answer this question successfully without the tremendous support of our Board of Directors, the Charles Lea Foundation and the community of Spartanburg County who all have been gracious in their support. However the people who do make it happen each day are our wonderful employees of the Charles Lea Center. It is their dedication, commitment and professionalism that they bring each day that makes us who we are.

It is all of you ‌ the Board, Foundation, community and our employees that I want to thank for helping us to meet our mission each day. I thank you all!

Gerald Bernard, Ed.D Executive Director, Charles Lea Center

Enhancing Lives. Encouraging Dreams. As the first year of the Charles Lea Center’s strategic plan comes to a close, leadership wanted to publicly express the many positive changes brought on by the plan thus they developed this new tagline which you’ll be seeing – Enhancing Lives. Encouraging Dreams. Staff, who jointly wrote the tagline, said this accurately describes what they do everyday – work to improve the quality of life of the men, women and children who receive services at the CLC while encouraging them to do whatever they want – whether that means living independently, getting a job or just being happy.

Who We Are From newborns to seniors, the Charles Lea Center provides services that enhance the quality of life for approximately 1,500 children and adults in Spartanburg County with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities and/or chronic medical conditions. As a vital community resource for more than 43 years, the CLC provides innovative services that often cannot be found elsewhere in South Carolina. The CLC employs 525 people who are committed to providing compassionate care and developing opportunities that will lead to a better life for the men, women and children who receive services at the CLC. After opening in 1971 with a budget of $500,000 and 272 people who received services, the CLC’s budget now surpasses $25 million. The CLC is the county’s second largest nonprofit (after Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System) and is a driving force in Spartanburg County’s economy.

Mission Statement The Charles Lea Center is committed to supporting people with disabilities and special needs where they live, where they work and where they play.

Through the years.

History It has often been said that families have chosen to live in Spartanburg County due to the services and care offered at the Charles Lea Center. That is a testament to the outpouring of community support the CLC has enjoyed since it opened. Originally the CLC housed the Speech and Hearing Clinic and the School for the Handicapped. Throughout the years those services evolved into the array of supports offered today. While adults now receive the majority of services offered, this quote from the dedication of the CLC is as fitting today as it was when written.

The culmination of the dreams and efforts of hundreds of volunteers, both
 living and dead, the Center is a landmark in the diagnosis, treatment and training of handicapped children. It is certainly the most complete center for such a program in the Southeast and perhaps the nation. ­– Spartanburg Herald-Journal, October 24, 1971 Dedication of the Charles Lea Center


What We Do There are few places in South Carolina offering the breadth of services the Charles Lea Center provides.

Residential Supports

Day Programs

Also referred to as Living Options, individuals reside in one of 61 homes and apartments located throughout Spartanburg County. Residents receive care dependent upon their needs.

The Focus of Day Services offers a wide variety of programs for individuals of all abilities and ages. The S.A.L.T. Shakers - Seasoned Adults Living Triumphantly, was designed for senior citizens with a developmental disability. The Visions program was the first in the state to provide care for those with intellectual disabilities who also are considered to be medically fragile and/or have severe orthopedic needs. One of the newer programs is Seniors Without Walls, which allows individuals to receive services in their own home, making it more convenient and flexible.

Through our Transitions program individuals are able to live more independently as their homes and/or apartments have been upfitted with the latest in technology such as but not limited to: iPads programmed to open and close doors, computerized medication dispensers and off-site monitoring. Each house and apartment is tailored to fit the needs of the people living there. The recently opened SECURE Medical Homes are for people who are considered medically fragile. Fittingly, SECURE means: Supporting Enhanced Care in a Uniquely Redesigned Environment.

The Focus of Day Services also has other innovative programs including: Learning Hands, Growing Connections, Ambassadors for Autism and Transitions. Look for this list to increase as programs are added dependent upon the need and the interests of participants.

WorkAbility At this 55,000-square-foot facility located in Inman, approximately 200 men and women complete work for both local and national manufacturers and businesses. Jobs include assembly work, distribution, storage, warehousing and more. In addition, WorkAbility has a contract to make military tie-down straps for the U.S. Department of Defense. All WorkAbility employees work about six hours, five days a week and are paid every two weeks.

Business Ventures

Service Coordination Our knowledgeable service coordinators help men, women and children who are eligible for services, as well their families, get the resources and care they need. Service coordinators assist individuals and families with meeting their goals so they may lead an enhanced quality of life. In addition, case workers help to organize respite services.

In many cases we have found it is more productive to form our own work crews in order to provide work for the men and women who receive services at the CLC, as well as people in the community who do not receive services but want to work. We currently have two businesses – the Clean Crew (janitorial services) and GreenLea Greenhouse & Groundskeeping. Both businesses have contracts with Spartanburg-area businesses while the Clean Crew also has a contract with the City of Spartanburg.

Can Do Kids This program provides support for children with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. Our experienced and caring early interventionists work with children, from newborns until age 5, to ensure they get their best start. These early interventionists also work with families, to help them receive the support and guidance needed for their children.

Customized Career Network Men and women receive specialized training that will enable them to find employment in businesses, such as, but not limited to retailers, manufacturers and restaurants. After employment a job coach helps these people to adjust to their job and provides ongoing training and support.

a Place for Everyone


ur philosophy is pretty straightforward at the Charles Lea Center. We support people where they live, work and play. If we do this right, like we strive to do every single day, this means we discover what people really want and work to help them achieve it, regardless of physical and/or intellectual abilities.

Our supports are based on the principles of person centered thinking, where the men, women and children receiving services, and oftentimes their family, direct the services they want and need. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to participate in society and have an active and vibrant life based on his or her interests and abilities. To that end, we are committed to being flexible to accommodate the changing needs and expectations of the individuals we support. It also means really listening to someone and finding solutions. This past year has been an exciting swirl of activity as we have been more innovative than ever. As for results - we are pleased with where we are headed and excited about the future. People who heard all their life that they would never live without 24-hour supports are now doing so. More men and women are working at jobs in the community and earning a paycheck. Many more are training and learning how to work in the community. Our day programs are expanding with more personalized supports. For us it is all about finding a place for everyone. After all isn’t that what we all want? A place where we can live, work and play … the way we want? We think so.


getting Hired

Helping people get what means most to them


ant to know one of the best cleaners in Spartanburg? Meet Laura Whitt, who works for ServiceMaster Janitorial Services and receives services from the Charles Lea Center’s Customized Career Network (CCN) department. Whitt goes to work several days a week, doing what she loves best, cleaning. “I’m just a clean person,” she said. “I always clean my apartment and if I go to someone’s house and it’s not clean I want to start cleaning.” When Whitt started talking with the employment coordinators at CCN she told them about her love of cleaning and how she would like to do it as a job. Now she’s been employed for almost two years, she’s one of the top employees at her job and she is one of the CCN’s many success stories. All of

this for a woman that never dreamed she would be working at a job in the community. In CCN the focus is on matching someone’s abilities, strengths, interests and requirements with a job that meets the employer’s needs. It’s a highly personalized process that usually forms a strong alliance between the employee, employer and the CCN employment coordinator. Virginia Williams works in packaging at Rustic Escentuals, a candle-making supply business located in Roebuck. She’s precise and very disciplined. She’s always on time for work and dressed appropriately. An ideal employee. “I like my job,” she said. “Before I was just so bored.” Both Williams and Whitt are treated as any other employee. And that’s fine; they don’t want special

treatment. They are capable of performing their jobs and they just want to work. Dozens of men and women are now taking classes on how to get a job at CCN’s newly re-designed location inside WorkAbility. The classrooms have laptops, iPads and computers where participants can practice their skills and look for work. Classes are held on topics such as how to dress appropriately and proper work behavior. There’s even a section on when to use your personal phone at work. The goal in this department is for employment counselors to work themselves out of a job … for people to do so well that they no longer need assistance. “I would tell anyone who was thinking of hiring someone to just do it, you won’t be sorry,” said Bill Monroe, co-owner of ServiceMaster Janitorial Services in Spartanburg. “Laura is one of our longest employed and best employees.”



Charles Lea Center Foundation Connection A grant from Women Giving for Spartanburg for $25,156 was received to up-fit the Customized Supported Employment Training Center located at WorkAbility. The grant paid for room divider partitions, furnishings, laptop computers, software, and training and certification for the staff working in the new career center.

living Options

It’s about where and how you want to live


ouses, apartments, supports, technology … living in a Charles Lea Center home these days can be like ordering from a menu. There are more options than ever before for individuals. CLC staff strives to match people with the supports they want thus creating opportunities many have never before experienced. Just a year ago Ansonia Byrd, Kathy Jo Frye and Tammy Robinson were living together in a transitional home, learning the skills needed to live independently. And now, they are enjoying living in apartments with limited monitoring systems. It’s like the best of both worlds. Each have their own space while friends and family have the assurance of knowing the CLC is still providing for them. “I love my apartment,” Byrd said. “I like being on my own.”

The CLC is a state leader in incorporating technology into living situations. Presently the CLC has 29 men and women who are living in homes or apartments that have some type of technology used for supports. These gadgets provide assistance or in some cases help keep watch of the person. There are two-way video cameras, motion detectors and other smart-house sensors. But for some, their desires are less and the ability to adjust the thermostat from their wheelchair is a sign of independence. Others have locked dispensers that sound alerts and dispense medicine at the appropriate times. In some locations web-based systems let off-site employees know whether the person is in bed, opening the refrigerator or leaving for work on time. It’s like smart-house technology that is mobile. And the two-way communication works similar to Skype.

It all may sound like Big Brother technology but it’s important to remember that there is nothing more Big Brother than having another person in your house. And of course, no one is forced to try it if they don’t feel comfortable. As the CLC is all about choices it recently opened new SECURE Medical Homes, yet another option for many. SECURE stands for: Supporting Enhanced Care in a Uniquely Redesigned Environment. These locations will provide medical care enabling people to live in a home and not a nursing facility. The residents of SECURE homes, due to fragile medical conditions, cannot live unsupervised but they do have a choice in daily activities. The new Seniors Without Walls day program allows them to stay home and work on activities or attend day programs a little later in the day, when they may feel more like leaving. It’s all up them. And that’s what it’s all about for us. Options to live, as you like.

Charles Lea Center Foundation Connection The Charles Lea Center Foundation secured a $35,000 Women Giving grant in 2011 to build a training apartment in the Life Skills Center at the main campus that is used to familiarize those moving into independent living situations with the electronic monitoring and accessibility equipment that enables and enhances their dream of a home of their own. Another Women Giving grant in 2012 funded installation of electronic monitoring in two transition-to-independent-living group homes.


creating Opportunities

It’s not about finding jobs; it’s about making them


ohn Daryl Watson and Chris Bensema look forward to work everyday. A week packed with hard jobs or working on a Saturday, in the hot sun? No problem. As members of the Charles Lea Center’s newest business venture, GreenLea Greenhouse & Groundskeeping, Watson and Bensema, who enjoy physical work, are thrilled with their positions. “These guys are gung-ho from 6 in the morning … they are ready to go, smiling faces all day, just loving to be outside and getting to do something a little different,” said GreenLea Senior Team Leader Dustin Gossett. 
“They tackle the job whole-heartedly. They aren’t afraid of hard work, they get out there and they know what they have to do and they get the job done and they are happy to do so.” From the Charles Lea Center’s mission to provide work opportunities for men and women with developmental

and/or intellectual disabilities, GreenLea Greenhouse & Groundskeeping was born. It follows in the highly successful footsteps of the Clean Crew, a janitorial service started two years ago. The GreenLea crew maintains the lawns at the Charles Lea Center’s main center, many of its homes and at WorkAbility. While the great outdoors and the lure of physical work attracted Watson and Bensema to the GreenLea crew, this was a new experience for them; neither had ever operated lawn equipment. As with any job, safety is paramount thus the Charles Lea Center put into place rigid training guidelines. The training mower does not have decks or blades so users can get used to the controls and just riding it. Other equipment has been modified as well. The training has paid off. Watson and Bensema can hold a straight line on the zero radius turn mower better than most. Plus they are all about details such as mak-

ing sure grass is blown off vehicles and sidewalks after mowing. “I didn’t really know what to expect; I had never worked with people with disabilities before so I was a little hesitant at first, “Gossett said. “I did not expect them to be as capable of doing the job as they were. It’s not at all what I expected.” GreenLea’s greenhouse division grows and maintains the flowers and shrubbery found at the various Charles Lea Center properties. Cynthia Nardi is the horticulturalist in charge. Her crew plans the popular greenhouse sales and makes sure the Charles Lea Center’s entrances and courtyards are inviting. Earlier this year they planted several employee benefits vegetable gardens where staff was free to pick the ripened veggies. As for what’s next, well, the possibilities are endless. “I see us venturing into other things, not just lawn, not just cleaning” said Kathleen Cobb, Social Enterprises Manager. “I think we have a wealth of ability at WorkAbility and in the community to do a multitude of things.”

Charles Lea Center Foundation Connection A $6,800 grant in 2013 from the Charles Lea Center Foundation purchased start-up equipment for the GreenLea crew.


The Lee S. Poole Advocacy and Service Award


stablished in 2010, the Lee S. Poole Advocacy and Service Award is an annual award established by the Charles Lea Center to honor and recognize the commitment of an individual(s) who has worked to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities in Spartanburg County.

Past recipients include:

2010 – Elaine T. Freeman Gil Hooper (posthumously) 2011 – Al Brumfeld 2012 – Cleveland S. Harley 2013 – Elizabeth Patterson






John and Lynne Poole wiith Elizabeth Patterson (middle)

About Lee S. Poole Lee Sterling Poole was used to beating the odds. Born prematurely, his parents, Lynne and John Poole, were told their first-born son would not survive. Lee may not have thrived as other children, but oh, did he live, growing into a wonderful young man before passing away at the age of 27 in 2009. Lee loved life and especially his friends at the Charles Lea Center’s Visions Program and at
the First Presbyterian Church of Spartanburg. Watching the movie ‘cars’ on television with mom, dad and younger brother Brad never grew old. Zooming through the house in his wheelchair pushed by his dad was a highly-anticipated nighttime ritual. When his mom pushed him onto the floor of the South Carolina State Capital to advocate for those with special needs, her cause could not be ignored. And how could it with precious Lee at her side? Lee had a cheerful spirit and conveyed an energy that was contagious. Sure his life had its challenges but it never showed in his big soulful eyes.

Lee S. Poole

Today, Lee’s legacy to the Spartanburg County community continues through the Lee S. Poole Advocacy & Service Award. Lee represented all that is good and caring about this community. His life is not only a testimony, but also a reminder, that regardless of your situation in life, everyone deserves the opportunity to reach their potential and enjoy their life to the fullest.

a Culture of Choice

My life as a wife, mother to adult children, grandmother, daughter to remarkable parents, sister, friend, and community volunteer offers a lot of variety! I bounce from task to responsibility to personal time having made choices throughout my life that have prepared me and allowed me to live the life God has given me to the fullest. Those with disabilities and special needs want and deserve nothing less than options for daily living, and because of the Culture of Choice created at the Charles Lea Center, they have that. As Chairman of the Charles Lea Center Foundation, I am proud of the role the Foundation plays in making choice possible. Choices for Housing: Grants through the Charles Lea Center Foundation from Women Giving for Spartanburg allowed the Lea Center to pioneer adaptive electronic technology that enables independent living even for individuals with extreme physical disabilities such as quadriplegia. A training apartment funded by Women Giving in the Center’s Life Skills Center serves as the training ground for enhanced independent living through technology. A Women Giving grant also paid for overnight electronic monitoring in two transition-to-independent-living homes that has now expanded into other Charles Lea group homes. All this technology makes independent living possible for individuals with special needs where it was not before. No doubt about it – The Charles Lea Center is the model for other organizations to follow as they integrate technology to create choices for independent living. Choices for Jobs: When a directive from the SC Department for Disabilities and Special Needs (SC DDSN) encouraged expanding community-based employment outside “sheltered workshops” such as our WorkAbility Center, the Foundation again received support from Women Giving to up-fit a Customized Career Center to train individuals for the jobs of their dreams. Group classes on job seeking skills and individual instruction for specific jobs are now offered in a professional-looking career training center at WorkAbility. Job coaches follow individuals into real world job sites to insure their success. The grant also paid for an on-line course and certification for the instructors/job coaches through Virginia Commonwealth University. Choices for Day Programs: Individuals in developmental day programs at the Charles Lea Center have all kinds of variety in their days! Art, pet and music therapies, Seniors Without Walls, Snoezelen sensory stimulation rooms, parties and special events, an indoor exercise gym, outdoor LifeTrail exercise equipment bought with a Mary Black Foundation independent living grant, the Life Skills Center, and a new Boy Scout troop funded by 18 special donors … Rest assured that the Lea Center’s day programs are way more than adult day care! Through the years as this Culture of Choice has been developed at the Charles Lea Center, private monies have allowed the Center to step out front. Charles Lea had a transition-to-independent-living program two years before the State implemented its CLOUD program because grants from private funders allowed the Center to try what had never been tried before. When the State encouraged Customized Supported Employment, the Foundation secured private funding to do it right. Recognizing the need for more active living on the part of the people served, the Foundation found a partner in the Mary Black Foundation to make that possible with exercise equipment that is safe for individuals with physical and intellectual disabilities and is even wheelchair accessible. And the paradigm shift that made this Cultural Revolution possible, two years of on-site consulting and organization-wide staff training in Person Centered Planning, was paid for with a Milliken Foundation grant through the CLC Foundation.

The Charles Lea Center Foundation is proud to fund along with many loyal partners and dedicated donors the innovation that allows choice for those served by the Charles Lea Center.
