Children With Special Needs Fund Receives $50,000 Grant
The Children with Special Needs (CSN) Fund received a $50,000 grant from the Rollin M. Gerstacker Foundation to fund its Ceiling and Stair Lifts Project for the year 2019. This grant will help the CSN Fund to provide ceiling and stair lifts for children with special needs, particularly those who are non-ambulatory.
By helping to purchase ceiling and stair lifts, families and caregivers will be able to safely transfer and move their children around their home and gain better access to community services and activities.. They also make the home more accessible for the child, allowing him or her to be more independent in carrying out activities of daily living.
In order to assist the most families with the highest needs, the CSN Fund Advisory Committee reviews applications for ceiling and stair lifts twice per 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.
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, Lewis Cass Building, 6th Floor, 320 Walnut St. Lansing, Michigan 48913.
