Faith, Hope & Charity was honored to be selected as a 2017 Grant Award Recipient by the Buena Vista County Community Foundation. During a breakfast banquet held Satuday, June 3rd, we were pleased to be recognized and receive our award along with eight other honorees representing Buena Vista County.
FHC's grant funding project is the installation of handicap accessible interior doors to each of the four homes within our Residential Care Facility. This project truly comes from the heart of our mission, "...improving the lives of children and young adults with special needs by promoting independence and individualtiy." By providing interior acess to our homes, this allows children using wheelchairs to gain more independence and move about their enviornment as we hope they will one day do as adults.
"We are so very grateful to the Foundation for this generous support of young people with mobility impairments in Storm Lake,," Cindy Wiemold, Executive Director commented, "The BV County Community Foundation funding is vital to this project, and will assist us in completing this project in a timely manner."
