With the belief that it is one of the greatest gifts to change someone’s life and not expect anything in return, Southwyck Homes is committed to outreach. The company’s conviction to building a better, stronger, more tight-knit team by serving together has led them to some of the poorest communities in the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica where they can lend their time and talents to make an impact with lasting effects through World Mission Partners. A little closer to home, Southwyck Homes is proud to partner with Champions Community Foundation – designed to play a meaningful role in the lives of physically challenged young adults in Metro Atlanta. Feeling it’s important to give back to the communities that surround its neighborhoods, Southwyck Homes also donated $50K to Medlock Park to build batting cages for local aspiring athletes to enjoy.
World Mission Partners (WMP) is a privately run 501(c)3 mission program launched by Southwyck’s own Edward Pease and his wife Patti. Since 2016, WMP began its mission trips to Costa Rica, where it constructs homes, supports families, offers much-needed medical/dental services and provides educational opportunities to deserving children. WMP expanded its missions to the Dominican Republic in 2018. There, the nonprofit partners with The Scheduling Institute of Atlanta and countless dentists from the U.S. and Canada to provide a mobile dental clinic that travels to many of the country’s poorest villages. WMP also operates a state-of-the-art dental clinic at The Good Samaritan Hospital of La Romana.
Champions Community Foundation (CCF) is public 501(c)3 entity that leverages the unique knowledge base and passions of its staff and board members to serve young adults with physical disabilities, including cerebral palsy, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, and physical injury. CCF exists to significantly improve the lives of these young adults by enabling them to reach their full potential as self-reliant, productive, and fulfilled citizens in their local communities. The Foundation recently debuted Champion’s Place – a safe, accessible, and affordable residence from which up to 16 residents can lead independent and productive lives, while benefiting from the latest assistive technology including access controlled automated doors, voice activated lights, TVs, shades and much more. It also serves as a social community and allows each resident to be self-reliant and experience life to its fullest. Southwyck Homes’ Principal, Edward Pease is proud to serve on the Board of Directors.
