Marilynn Martinez & PRISM of Georgia
The mission of PRISM of Georgia is to change the way the community sees people with developmental disabilities and recognizing that every life has a purpose. Marilynn Martinez, the Executive Director, is nothing less than outstanding at leading the effort to achieve that goal.
As she puts it, it’s all about PRISM: Purpose – Relationships – Independence – Service – Mentorship
Our wide-ranging conversation covered topics including:
- The importance of celebrating success
- How families can support a loved one with a disability
- The challenge of funding
- The challenge of recruiting staff – It’s everything!
- Collaborating with business to fill jobs
For me, Marilynn’s most intriguing project is the “PRISM Planet Patrol.” Everyone involved wins, and it’s a terrific way to get involved.
