Executive Director of Connectability Jacqueline Daniel checks on what is left of her desk on Wednesday, March 6, 2019, after a fire destroyed nearly everything inside the nonprofit in Dahlonega last week. Connectability is a nonprofit that serves people with disabilities.
Walking through the ashen remains and broken glass, ConnectAbility’s executive director Jacqueline Daniel reminisced on how far the nonprofit had come. She thought of all the people who had helped build up the Dahlonega nonprofit, which has served children and adults with special needs since 2010, as its office stood scorched beyond repair. Daniel said it was “devastating” to walk through after the fire Feb. 26 at the nonprofit’s office on Memorial Drive.
