Turnstone Receives Grant from the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation
FORT WAYNE, IN (December 20, 2018) – Turnstone is overjoyed to announce that it recently received a generous grant from the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation totaling $10,000. The funds will be used to support various therapy programs for people with disabilities offered at Turnstone.
The programs made possible through this funding help individuals make strides in reaching their individual goals and their highest potential. Recently, a Turnstone client, who is a participant in Turnstone’s occupational therapy and fitness therapy programs, said “Turnstone has helped me improve function on my left side and I have improved functionality in my left hand by throwing balls and feeding Milo [Turnstone’s therapy dog] treats.”
Without this generous funding from the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation, clients like this would not be able to gain the proper services and help that they need to succeed. St. Joseph Community Health Foundation’s continued support allows Turnstone to ensure vital programs and services continue to be available to and accessible for people with disabilities.
ABOUT TURNSTONE: Now in its 75th year of service, Turnstone’s mission is to empower people with disabilities to achieve their highest potential by providing one of the most comprehensive offerings of services and programs to people with disabilities and their families under one roof in the United States. Thanks to generous support and compassionate staff, Turnstone’s legacy of advocacy and innovation continues to contribute to a world that accepts and values people based on their abilities. This legacy now includes the privilege of functioning as the home training facility for the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Goalball Teams and the goalball resident program through a partnership with the United States Association of Blind Athletes (USABA). www.turnstone.org | Twitter: @TurnstoneCenter | Facebook: Turnstone Center of Children and Adults with Disabilities | Instagram: @TurnstoneCenter
