We are excited to announce that SBCC has been awarded a Tier 1 – Quality of Life Grant in the amount of $14,771.00 to be used for our 2021 Empowerment Camps. Funds from this grant will provide opportunities for individuals living with spina bifida aged 8 -100, their siblings and parents/caregivers to enjoy a day of exploring, learning, interacting with their peers, and respite activities for parents/caregivers at Camp Joy.
As a pillar of the Paralysis Resource Center, the Quality of Life Grants Program, pioneered by the late Dana Reeve, impacts and empowers people living with paralysis, their families and caregivers by providing grants to nonprofit organizations whose projects and initiatives foster inclusion, involvement and community engagement, while promoting health and wellness for those affected by paralysis in all 50 states and U.S. territories.
Grants are awarded to organizations that address the needs of people living with paralysis caused by spinal cord and other injuries, diseases, or birth conditions, including (but not limited to) stroke, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
THANK YOU to the Reeves Foundation for their support of SBCC and fulfilling our mission to those we serve.
