Executive Director MESSAGE “Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe and enthusiastically act upon … must inevitably come to pass!” Paul J. Meyer
At the Charles Lea Center we imagine every day what could be and what we will be. It is who we are and what we do. We are driven by the desire to embrace the very best in all of us to create opportunities for the people we support to flourish in their communities where they live work and play. Over the past year we have been part of some wonderful stories. I am reminded of a woman who spent the majority of her life in an institution who is now living in a home in the community and baked her first cake at age 45. We helped a young man who has significant physical disabilities achieve his dream of living in his own apartment. We have been successful in helping more than 50 individuals get jobs in fully integrated companies such as Belk and Adidas. More than 15 people who have lived in one of our group homes moved into their own apartments and now have greater control over their lives. We helped two young men navigate the process of purchasing a condominium. Finally, we have been successful in partnering with other providers in New York, Wisconsin, Colorado, and North Carolina. Together we collaborate as well as challenge each other to seek new and better ways to provide services using technology and other innovative service models. These stories and others would not have been possible without the tremendous support and dedication of all the employees who help create the magic that happens at the Charles Lea Center. Our staff believes in finding solutions and creating opportunities to better serve and support those who entrust us with their care. Our Board of Directors provides us with the moral compass to assure a stability that allows us to dream. It is their support that provides the fuel that energizes us to turn those dreams into reality. The Charles Lea Center Foundation and its Board of Trustees take our requests (as crazy as they may seem) seriously and have provided tremendous support, and encouragement, for which we are grateful. We ae humbled by what we have accomplished so far but at the same we are enthusiastically looking toward the future and what it might bring. It is our desire to help define the future by taking an active role in identifying and creating new services that will have a positive impact on people’s lives. It is this approach that I believe makes us unique and allows us to constantly seek new ways to provide services that will have a positive impact on the quality of life of each person we serve. Thank you.

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 CLCâ€™s budget now surpasses $25 million. The CLC is the countyâ€™s second largest nonprofit (after Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System) and is a driving force in Spartanburg Countyâ€™s economy.
WHAT WE DO
There are few places in South Carolina offering the breadth of services the Charles Lea Center provides.
Residential Supports 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. 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.
Day Programs 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. 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.
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.
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.
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.
Business Ventures 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 â€“ 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.
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.

2015 Lee S. Poole award recipient Jack Lawrence, his wife, Kay and Lynne and John Poole, parents of Lee Poole.
THE LEE S. POOLE ADVOCACY AND SERVICE AWARD Established 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 Brumfield 2012 – Cleveland S. Harley 2013 – Elizabeth Patterson 2014 – William Walsh 2015 – Jack Lawrence
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. 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.
Year in Review
EnablingCHOICE Our mission at the Charles Lea Center Foundation is to raise money from the private sector to enhance the quality of life of the individuals served by the Charles Lea Center. The Foundation does not raise operating money; that comes from the SC Department for Disabilities and Special Needs. With donations, fundraisers and grants, the Foundation has supported the Charles Lea Center to be the leader in our state in implementing changes that create a culture of choice. And this change started at CLC long before the government said it had to be done. For instance, the Medicaid Final Rule now mandates “person-centered service planning.” The Charles Lea Center started doing that in 2011 with a grant from the Milliken Foundation. A technology grant from the J M Smith Foundation brought in SmartBoards that can be used in person-centered planning meetings to illustrate lifestyle choices for individuals who are non-readers or non-verbal. The Charles Lea Center’s Transition to Independent Living process has been so successful in moving over 100 folks out of group homes and into apartments that the Center is now approved by the state to charge consulting fees to teach other communities how to do this. For CLC, technology is a big part of transitioning individuals to live on their own. Electronic monitoring and controls that enable independence, first paid for with grants from Women Giving for Spartanburg, are now a budgeted cost of the Center’s first class transition program. The CLC Foundation funded many recreational choices this year. We sent 22 children and adults to summer camps for individuals with special needs. A gift from the Stringer Foundation paid for movie parties for Focus of Day participants. The Foundation funded pottery classes for Seniors Without Walls, provided refreshments for the client fashion show, and renewed fees for the Boy Scout troop. The ladies living in the Autumn Ridge group home even had a beach vacation this year paid for with restricted donations to the Autumn Ridge House Special Fund. And as always, the Foundation spearheaded Adopt-a-Home for the Holidays and supplemented shopping for the Angel Tree. In addition to these client centered grants, the Foundation funded employee training in 2016, including the nationally acclaimed TEACCH curriculum for adolescents and adults with autism. Our Tinsley Memorial Fund pays monetary service awards to longtime employees. We paid our share of a new awning at the Focus drop-off area and a new intercom communication system for the main Burdette Street campus. On behalf of the Foundation Board of Trustees, we are proud to be a part of the innovative, compassionate, responsive programming choices offered by the Charles Lea Center, not just because it’s mandated by Medicaid but because it’s the right way to treat people. And we are grateful to the hundreds of donors who make choices possible at CLC. Sincerely,
