Exciting Things Happening!

Quest Connect is growing rapidly. It is amazing to think where we were as an organization 10 years ago and where we are now. The amount of people we are able to serve through our multiple community based services is ever growing. Our Community Living Support (CLS) specialists are gearing up for all the fun fall events happening in our community where they can take our participants to help them achieve their goals and have fun! For our participants on the SCL Waiver, our Community Access program is growing and we are ready for the growth with daily research on groups and opportunities to help our participants move towards social independence. Our Supported Employment program is out in the community helping participants in many local businesses build not only a better professional life for them but also showing the community that hard workers are inside us all. Adult Day Training located at Quest Connect has a fabulous and jam packed weekly schedule, giving our participants many choices of activities that work towards goals, daily living, and healthy fun! We are so excited about all the exciting things happening at Quest Connect and our staff thoroughly enjoys coming up with ingenious ways to better serve this dynamic population!

A Softball Smile that Changes it All…

When the Special Olympics softball season came to an end a few weeks ago, there was a noticeable lull on Wednesday evenings. Attending the Quest Connect softball games was a place to see the most sincere forms of happiness and pure camaraderie. The sportsmanship, friendship, and genuine excitement that exuded from both teams was awe-striking. The happiness of just being able to play a team sport trumps any care about wins or losses, runs or outs, hits or strikes; we have so much to learn from our Quest team. It is amazing that attending a ¬†softball game, on a regular Wednesday night in Georgetown Kentucky could have such an impact on my days in the time since. I have been able to step back when I get down and out about a Kentucky loss or want to throw my chips at the TV when my NFL teams forget to show up on Sunday, I step back a remember our Quest softball team that while they want to win, they ultimately just want to play. Softball is about friendship and having fun. We should all start viewing life through their lens; take everything in stride, smile and laugh because nothing else matters in that moment and any chance you get to have fun: run with it. ¬†* Despite the Special Olympics Softball season being over, Quest Connect has a team in the Miracle League. Before we know it, it will be time for Special Olympics Bowling to begin too!!! Contact Quest Connect for more information! ¬†—- Hillary H McGoodwin
