Meet Gloria Smith


Gloria Smith is a participant of our Day Services program at Buckeye Industries, Cleveland East.
She can be best described as Day Services’ “Social Butterfly”, always the first to greet anyone to come through the door with her pleasant and friendly personality.
Gloria has many wonderful attributes, including being highly independent and a hard worker. She is also very eager and willing to help others from holding doors to lending a hand wherever needed.
As New Avenues has expanded opportunities for community integration and engagement,  Gloria’s qualities have further flourished, and she is actively involved in just about every community outing.
Our Good Deed Outings, where individuals volunteer at nursing homes and local businesses, are particularly some of Gloria’s favorite outings. These volunteer opportunities allow Gloria to meet new people, give back to her community and show the world that she can make a positive difference in the lives of others.
