I am a 40 year old African American Woman. Im the mother of five children ages 24-13. I have seven wonderful grandchildren. I am a patient and compassionate person that enjoy helping others. I was raised in my grandmothers home with a Mentally Challenged Uncle, who is now 66yrs old and still lives at home. As a young girl I attended all the Christmas parties and dances held by The Lucas County Board of Developmental Disabilities. This experience gave me the goal and desire to want to work in this field. I helped my grandmother take care of my uncle along with my Aunties. My grandmother is now deceased and we promised her that we would always take care of him. In her honor and care for my Uncle, I decided to open up my own home and call it Mary Ella Homes and Provider Services,due to the fact she always took care of him at home. In 1997 I became a certified habilitation technician of The Lucas County Board of Developemental Disabilities (Lott Industries) (1997-August 2005). Para Professional of Toledo Public Schools,(2000-2003). State Nursing Assistant,(2006-Current). Direct Care Staff for the Sunshine Childrens Home (2009-January 22,2013).

k) Describe how services will be provided in the event of your illness or emergency.

Mary Ella Homes is a small agency, therefore I have certified staff to replace me in case of illness or emergency. If a situation like this occur I would contact the individual and inform them of the situation, and give them the option to be cared for by a certified replacement or make the hours up at a later time upon request of chosen date.

l) Describe how you would address individual or family concerns.

I would address any concern in a timely matter with respect and integrity. I would help solve any concerns with empathy in mind and heart, providing a solution that will help the individual, family and myself.

m) Describe specific strategies for increasing community inclusion and involvement for individuals served.

It is my belief if we can create more enclave jobs in the community, individuals would have extra money to do recreational programs that involve daily activities in the community. I once supervised a enclave at a cookie factory and I witnesses individuals feel important and needed for a service to others, therefore they enjoyed their job and always attempted to do it right. As they worked and listened to the radio,when the song by R.Kelly "I believe I can fly" came on they all song in harmony and happiness and thats the type of community inclusion we need, more created recreational activities and job placement programs that give them the choice to pick and decide what they would like to do. It has always been and thought and goal of mine to one day own a building just like the Boys and Girls club of Ohio and offer activities, games, transportation, trips, parties, social networking skills, social media and team sports to the consumers who wanted to be a member of what I would call "Community of Chance Men and Women Club". It is my belief that with a club like this offered to Consumers who have worked during the day or attended a day program and would like to continue their day with more community involvement, activities and socializing with peers instead of going home with not much to do would be greatly appreciated to be involved in as a member.

n) Include here any information about you that you want shared with an individual, family or guardian that will assist him/her to decide whether you are the best choice of provider.

I am a trained Provider that work cooperatively with anyone I encounter. I will carry out any goals and objectives outlined in the Individual Plan. My Personal Interest is assisting individuals with Supportive Living and Communication skills. I enjoy taking individuals out in the community and doing activities of there choice. It makes me happy to help and provide a service to someone that need assistance to obtain enjoyment in there life. My motto that I live by when Im assisting a individual is "free to be me". I will fullfill this gesture by maintaing personal and safe care with fun and excitement.
