ABILITIES NETWORK AWARDED A 2 YEAR, $200,000 MATCHING GRANT FROM THE HARRY AND JEANETTE WEINBERG FOUNDATION

 

Abilities Network is pleased to announce a $200,000 challenge grant from The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation that will support our continuing cutting edge services that challenge the community to acknowledge the value and equality of people of all abilities.

 

As a standard challenge grant, The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation grant – $100,000 per year for two years – will leverage other donations to Abilities Network and cover operating expenses to their Community & Employment Partners, Healthy Families Baltimore County, Project All Children Together (ACT), and Senior Services Move Management programs.

 

“We are very grateful to The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation for its generosity and to our future matching funding partners for helping Abilities Network continue to deliver our four key programs serving people with disabilities, young children and families, and older adults,” said Lee Kingham, Abilities Network’s CEO.

 

Abilities Network’s broad array of programming focuses on empowerment. Within Community & Employment Partners, our staff support adults with intellectual disabilities to live fully, work independently and contribute to their communities. Healthy Families Baltimore County assists parents in developing a nurturing skill set that provides a strong beginning for their children from birth to age 5. Project ACT ensures child educators and care providers can teach and include children of all abilities within their classrooms. Senior Services Move Management supports senior adults to transition smoothly from their present homes into continuing care retirement communities. All of these individualized services support individuals from all backgrounds to rise out of poverty and become vital members of the communities of their choice.
