I choose to work at SCI so that I can better serve my community. Working for an ethical nonprofit allows me to focus on client care, rather than the volume of people attending the center. I am proud to lead an excellent team that helps mentally and physically impaired adults maintain their independence. Our adult daytime care center helps people to remain in their own home, which is a service I hope to utilize in the future. I love my clients!

When people over the age of 55 in Savannah expressed a desire for academically rigorous educational programming to enrich their retirement years, I was pleased to join SCI to establish The Learning Center. TLC is a place where the humanities come to life through courses, lectures, special learning programs, and educational travel. TLC has become an extended family of learners where each member benefits from the rich life experiences and knowledge of the others, and all enjoy the friendships that result from common encounters in the classroom.

email: jtaylor@seniorcitizens-inc.org

I was born to parents who are from the WWII era so I have always been around older people. The baby-boomer generation has always held a special place in my heart. We owe them the dignity and respect that they earned by paving the way to the life that we live today. I can see that SCI is a place that holds the same values that I do about seniors. As soon as I visited, I knew that this was the place for me.
