What's Great About My Mentor?
Dedication: we grew to count on one or all of the mentoring group to attend any and all of our emails and meeting inquiries AND every one of our public endeavors (3 product beta-testing sites, the soft opening and the grand opening). Insight and perseverance: every dilemma, dead-end, frustration, what-if question was met with an accurate, but up-to-us answer. Resourcefulness: if they didn't have an answer themselves, they dug and researched until they found a suitable solution.
How SCORE Helped
Flat out, Goosebumps Exotic Ices would not exist without the Simple Steps to Starting Your Business workshops 2 through 5 or the entire mentoring staff and process. The workshops provided a treasure of insights and resources without being over-bearing or preach-y. The structure of the workshops took us from basic to complex in logical "go-or-no-go" steps. If I only had a dollar for every time a topic caused me to say, "Gee, I never thought of that." The workshops were the best money Goosebumps ever spent.

Project Genesis was founded in 1991 as a non-profit corporation dedicated to serving Connecticut adults and students who have disabilities. While our main office is located in Willimantic, our services are available in every county in the state. We serve over 200 individuals per year, some of whom participate in short-term job supports and many of whom receive long-term educational, vocational and life-skills supports.
We believe in…
Individualized Services: Each person receiving services is unique and deserves to have our support focused on their own, specific dreams and goals. Since our inception in 1991 Project Genesis has been committed to individualized services and this has set us apart.
Trust: One of our strongest guiding principles is the belief that the relationships between our consumers and our staff are key to the development of productive services. When there is a relationship of trust people are better able to strive and to achieve their best.
Honesty: We have a commitment to open and honest communication. No organization is perfect and we at Project Genesis try to own our mistakes just as we celebrate our successes. We welcome the opinions of our consumers and we regularly request information about how we are doing. Both informal communication and satisfaction surveys provide us with information about how we can do our jobs better.
At Project Genesis we never stop trying to do our best. It is, simply, what you deserve.

Research shows that the rate of depression among elders in senior residences is 24% to 27%. It's not that every fourth resident you greet in the hallway is depressed.
It's that we should be more concerned about the people who aren't in the hallway to greet.
