THE POWER OF ONE
Taylor Egan began working at CODI as a Residential Counselor in 2009.
In 2003, she was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, a bipolar disorder with schizophrenic tendencies. Taylor is very grateful for the support system that has helped her throughout her struggles and has allowed her to lead a productive life. Her desire to serve in the mental health field came from what she called her 'special connection' in understanding the needs of the mentally and physically disabled.
This Fall, she saw another need. Some residents come from hospitals to group homes with little but the clothes on their backs. CODI helps meet those needs, but Taylor wanted to do something extra. She called on her friends on Facebook, www.facebook.com/dare2share2015 to donate warm blankets and robes. They read her post and responded. By her December 10th deadline, she found herself with over 100 bags of donated robes and blankets. 80 bags were donated to CODI residents.
Thank you, Taylor Egan, for your compassion to give back to those who have the least and need it the most.
