President's Message

Since I became President of Carobell Incorporated, it has been my privilege to guide the administration through major overhauls and prevalent changes within the mental health service delivery system.  Today, we remain a solid, financially secure non-profit that continues to find new avenues of supports for the members we serve.

For the past 20 years, I have walked proudly in the reflection of two 20th century women.  Women whose ideas are as fresh for us today as they were forty years ago.  Virgina Franks and Tina Midgett devoted their energies and resources to change the lives of members born with severe/profound developmental disabilities; many with limited life expectancy.  Because of their initiative, we have served members from twenty-six counties across the state of North Carolina.

It is a rare privilege to inherit a vision.  We at Carobell, Inc. resolve to make our founders' vision our own and to work with passion and creativity in fulfilling their mission.
