Over the years, I had the opportunity to visit many other organizations throughout Georgia and have worked with other agencies in Florida, Tennessee, and Kentucky. It has been my observation that The Jessamine Place stands out as a Center of Excellence. It’s begins with a dedicated leadership team and staff who go above and beyond to provide for the people they serve. Not that other agencies do not provide good services, it’s just that The Jessamine Place Shines. The Jessamine Place is an integral part of our community with active engagement by the people who receives supports from the agency. I am very proud that The Jessamine Place is a part of our community. A Place of excellence.
