In June, CLASS was awarded a grant from Developmental Pathways’ Mill Levy funds of $15,000 to help purchase a low mileage wheelchair accessible van! Thanks to these funds, CLASS was able to purchase 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan.
Our goals following the purchase of a second van for our day program were to increase the number of individuals to have opportunities to access their communities on a regular basis and to increase opportunities for individuals who require wheelchair accessible transportation to access their communities. While we are still trying to hire one more Direct Support Professional to fully recognize this goal, we have been able to offer community access services to 24 individuals each week. We are also using the van for the smaller groups that are participating in community access activities.
