Children With Special Needs Fund Receives $50,000 Grant

Contact: Jim Beaver 517-241-7420


The Children with Special Needs (CSN) Fund received a $50,000 grant from the Rollin M. Gerstacker Foundation to fund its Ceiling & Stair Lifts Project for the year 2017. This grant will help CSN Fund to provide ceiling and stair lifts for children with special needs, particularly those that can't walk.

By helping to purchase ceiling and stair lifts, families will have the following benefits: (1) It will be easier for families and caregivers to safely transfer and move their children around the home (2) Make the home more accessible so that the child can be more independent in carrying out activities of daily living like, bathing, toileting, etc.

Last year, ten (10) families benefited from this program through this award and we look forward to helping more families this year.

If your child could benefit from a ceiling or stair lift, contact the Children’s Special Health Care Services (CSHCS) office at your local health department or call the CSN Fund at 517-241-7420 to find out how to apply.

Please note that the Fund will only consider applications on a first-come, first-serve basis until the grant award is exhausted.


If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to the Children with Special Needs Fund, call 517-241-7420 or mail directly to: Children with Special Needs Fund. 320 Walnut St. Lansing, Michigan 48913.
