The Foundation is working to support families with children or youth adversely affected by a disability by supporting access to adaptive youth experiences, animal-assisted therapy, traditional and nontraditional therapeutic services, and independent living programs.
The Foundation supports organizations that serve youth with a broad range of conditions that impair their daily living and quality of life. Services that are funded include traditional and nontraditional therapy, youth and family supports, and enrichment opportunities that serve youth with disabilities or chronic health conditions that may or may not be curable.
The Foundation is also interested in supporting programs that assist youth with the transition to adulthood, and animal-assisted therapy, including service dog programs and equine therapy.
The Foundation’s focus in chronic health and disability services is primarily:
Funding to support testing and eye care for infants and children with vision disabilities.
Funding to respond to the needs of children and their families by providing medically managed child care, respite care and community-based, family centered support systems.
Funding to support the graduation of three teams of service dogs that will be provided free of charge to children with physical and developmental disabilities.
