Creative Enterprises Wins Pinnacle Award

Creative Enterprises had the distinct honor of being chosen as the recipient of the Gwinnett Chamber’s Pinnacle Award in the category of non-profit.  The award presentation included leaders and innovators from businesses all over Gwinnett County.  Creative was up against some tough competition for the award, including other providers of services in our county.  To win this award was a great acknowledgement for our center and our staff and all the hard work that has been put in over the years.

 

Another great surprise was the donation check that came with the award from Service First Roofing that will be put towards getting our parking lot paving project completed. Thank you Service First Roofing!

Funding Received for Dream Quest Program

Creative Enterprises is excited to announce that thanks to generous grants from both Walton EMC and the Jackson EMC Foundation, we now have funding for our individuals to experience Dream Quest–a horseback riding program that’s just for people with disabilities!  Starting in April, groups of individuals along with one of our staff will attend riding lessons at the Dream Quest facility in Bethlehem, GA and also learn about caring for these amazing animals.  We are thrilled to be able to offer this experience and will post photos and success stories once the program is underway.  In the meantime, you can visit Dream Quest’s website to learn more!

 

5/28/14 Update:

 

We are over a month in to the Dream Quest program with our clients now!  Every week the riders come back with huge smiles on their faces and talking about what a great time they have had–and from the pictures below it is obvious!
