Judith Eugene is the founder of the Loving Hands Group, as well as an instructor and practitioner within her organization. Once a successful architect,Judith left her chosen field following a turbulent chapter in her personal life where she realized that nothing is guaranteed and that her career was not as fulfilling as she had hoped. So Judith started the Loving Hands Group, which offers seniors and those living with disabilities throughout the Cleveland area the opportunity to take life-enriching classes and experience healing therapies.
In this episode, Judith discusses the difficulty of leaving architecture behind, elaborates on why Loving Hands Group is for- rather than non-profit, and gives advice to those seeking more fulfillment and meaningful action in their lives.
Do Well & Do Good Challenge Nomination:
“The agency was founded in 1962 by a group of parents, frustrated by the lack of support services and quality education available for their children. While many services now are available for families, the system is far from perfect. The Arc of Greater Cleveland can provide desperately needed assistance by working with and on behalf of families to ensure that their family member with intellectual disabilities receives the services he/she needs to experience quality of life.
The Arc of Greater Cleveland has been an independent advocate fighting for the basic needs, safety and rights of children and adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities by helping families secure support services, financial assistance, housing, education and training, employment, health care and much more. The Arc of GC is the only independent voice in the area fighting for equal rights and equal access to services for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.”
