About the Founder

Celia Anderson became a respite care provider in September 2005. She became a foster parent in November 2005. Celia became involved in the foster care program because she herself was a foster child. She and three of her siblings became part of the foster care program when she was nine years old. Fortunately, they were never separated from each other and remained in the same home together until she graduated from high school. Celia received high quality care, guidance, and love in her foster home. She truly has realized the love and joy of having an extended family. Celia was inspired to go on to achieve quite a bit in her life in spite of her early beginnings, as a result of the love and encouragement received from her foster family. She went on to get several university degrees in the social science field. She is a wife and the proud biological mother of two sons, and serves as foster parent for one special needs child.

Celia has been involved with special needs children for approximately fifteen (15) years. She first started out in the early eighties at a special needs center in Columbia, SC where she served as a Client Activities Coordinator. She later moved to Georgia and was employed at another special needs facility. Celia later began working with one of the county school systems as a full time substitute teacher. It was during these almost 10 years of service that Celia truly recognized and embraced that work with people of all ages is her calling. She witnessed personal situations where family members struggled with the decision of what to do with disabled young adults and aging parents that required 24 hr care. She has always harbored a strong desire to give back just as she received. She was inspired to go to the ultimate level of giving by providing the living environment that is needed to provide families a peace of mind that comes with knowing that their loved ones are being properly cared for. She personally realized the benefits of a strong foster care program and wants nothing more than to be able to provide a safe caring living environment for the many people in need of one.

Jackson Falls is her vision and contribution to the citizens of the Atlanta area. Jackson Falls is dedicated to providing a place of safety, love, and refuge. Let no person stand alone as long as there is a Jackson Falls.
