Choices In Community Living and Resident Home Association extend our deepest appreciation to The Dayton Foundation for a recent grant to each agency to assist with funding for critically needed vans. The Presidential Grant for Community Integration through Transportation was funded by the Robert and Jean Penny Endowment Fund and the Tri-River Employers Healthcare Coalition Endowment. Currently Resident Home has 16 vans, while Choices has more than 40.
The need to provide accessible, safe and reliable transportation remains one of the top priorities for both agencies. With minimal funding from federal, state and local sources to meet the transportation needs of people served by the agencies, grants like the ones awarded by The Dayton Foundation are key to us maintaining community integration and involvement.
