“Disability Resources, Inc. has been enormously blessed by the generosity of our friends and donors….individuals, foundations, and corporations alike. In order to keep our services affordable for our families, we rely on our supporters to help us bridge the gap.”
Disability Resources, Inc. provides residential care, vocational training and recreational activities for developmentally disabled individuals in a loving, homelike environment. Because the folks are unable to drive, the organization’s van is of paramount importance to use in outings all over Abilene.
“Imagine our sleepless nights when one of our 10-year old vans with 96,000 miles began to have transmission problems,” Lisa, a house manager at DRI said. “The thought of the stalled van sitting on the side of the road filled with our stranded and distraught folks was a major concern for us at DRI. The Community Foundation of Abilene came to our rescue!” Through a grant from the Foundation’s Unrestricted Funds, DRI now has reliable transportation to take people to doctor appointments, church services and other off-campus activities.
“Thank you to CFA and to your generous donors,” Dickie Greenwood, CEO/DRI, Inc. said, “for all you have done on behalf of the folks at DRI.”
