Power of Intention

Have you ever walked into a room and suddenly felt on edge?

Have you ever experienced the opposite – walking into a room and feeling a refreshing sense of calm?

During a recent virtual training, the speaker focused on the power of intention to transform an experience and a physical space. If the people in the room are genuinely focused on creating a positive experience for others, the feeling is that of calm empowerment. If the leader in the room is simply looking out for their best interest no matter what that means for others, the feeling is much different.

At Boys and Girls Homes, the Waccamaw Way Model of Care is focused on intentionally creating a space that is full of the positive energy that comes from a community that cares for the best interests of all involved. A group that is dedicated to providing health, healing, and hope for all who enter our continuum of care. This effort extends from the administrative offices to the residential cottages, from the foster homes to the farm, from the therapeutic spaces to the classrooms of Thomas Academy. Our goal is for every person who enters a BGHNC space to feel that refreshing sense of calm that comes from positive intentions.
