Our Greenville office provides periodic services for children and adults with developmental disabilities living in Greenville and the surrounding areas. These services include: Community Living Support, Community Networking, Respite, Supported Employment, B3 Respite, Community Guide, and Supported Living. All periodic services frequency is tailored to meet each individual needs and Individualized Support Plan. Our staff are highly qualified individuals who continue to advocate for community inclusion among the individuals we serve. Supported Living was recently added to the Innovation waiver to provide individuals we serve the opportunity to live on their own with additional support. A Small Miracle Greenville is proud to offer this service to Greenville and the surrounding areas.
We have a 6500 sq. ft building, which is broken up among several functional rooms for our Service Recipients to enjoy Some of those rooms includes 2 libraries on site. One is a children’s library with a variety of reading materials as well as books on tape. The other is a lending library full of various resources from special topic books to specialized conference DVD’s, etc. There is an art & crafts room full of special projects and other manipulatives used for increasing fine motor skills. We have an exercise room with a variety of equipment and DVD’s for service recipients to use as well as a WELLNESS program designed to keep our Service Recipients MOVING! There is also a computer lab, a game room with a Nintendo Wii, and an observation room with a 2-way mirror for parents/ case managers to use when observing so they don’t interrupt goal-training sessions. There is a sensory room that contains a variety of supports used for tactile stimulation and soft music. This room can provide either an environment for relaxation or stimulation.
In addition to the various instructional rooms we also offer on-site activities that vary throughout the year. Some of these programs/ activities include recreational therapy, music education, art education, Karaoke, and various socialization opportunities. We are involved in the Exceptional Community Baseball League, volunteer for Special Olympics events year-round, and co-host Special Populations Dances with the Greenville Parks and Recreation Department.

Lauren Tate, Office Manager Hello, my name is Lauren Tait and I am a recent graduate from East Carolina University with a degree in Recreational Therapy. I hope to become fully licensed in a few short months! Throughout my college career I have become well versed in stress management and relaxation techniques as well as several coping skills in order to promote well-being. Prior to graduating, I completed an internship at Vidant Medical Center working with adult and IDD populations in which I learned extensively from. I have always had the passion to help others in need and from a young age I have done just that. I have a strong connection to volunteering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as well as Special Olympics. I am very excited to be part of A Small Miracle and can’t wait to see where this journey will take me!
