The Rhode Island Foundation awards generous grant
Seven Hills Rhode Island is grateful to The Rhode Island Foundation for its recent generous grant award in the amount of $5,000 to provide Basic Need items to individuals with developmental disabilities, autism, and brain injury who participate in our Adult Day and Residential Programs. These programs work to increase independence for program participants in their daily living activities and community integration. Funds from the Rhode Island Foundation will allow programs to purchase basic need items such as adaptive devices to allow a person to feed themselves or take a shower unaided. Other items include food, clothing, housing/rental assistance, utilities assistance, transportation assistance and toiletries, based on individual need and circumstance. The Rhode Island Foundation is considered one of the nation’s oldest community foundations and is the largest funder of Rhode Island’s nonprofit sector. Seven Hills Rhode Island is honored to have this continued partnership with the Rhode Island Foundation.
