The Kershaw County Board of Disabilities and Special Needs (KCBDSN) recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the Lewis Street Community Training Home II, the second of two such homes in Kershaw County the agency uses to assist its clients.
“It is a residential, four-bedroom home for men with intellectual disabilities being served by the board,” KCBDSN Executive Director Zenobia Corley said. “The board is a contracted provider for the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs (SCDDSN). We opened the home with only two residents, with the potential to provide two more persons on the critical needs waiting list from SCDDSN.”
Joining Corley at the ceremony were her immediate predecessor, former KCBDSN Executive Director Thoyd Warren; Kershaw County Council Chairman Julian Burns; KCBDSN Director of Residential Services Vernoica Lewis; KCBDSN Consumer Advocate Charles Skipper; and KCBDSN member Theodore Jackson.
