Investing in the Future on Erie Gives Day

 Erie Gives

Thank you for helping reach our goal!
$20,402 from 146 generous donors!

Donations to this year’s Erie Gives will help to fund the construction of a new group offering enhanced support and accessibility for adults with significant physical challenges.  The home, expected to open in fall 2019, will provide: 

  • Four spacious bedrooms providing privacy for personal care needs. An office near the cluster of bedrooms keeps staff close by throughout the night.
  • Two living areas providing flexibility for residents’ interests and preferences.
  • A large kitchen with portions of the counter at wheelchair level to enable residents to participate in meal preparation.
  • An attractive brick edifice with an outdoor patio accented by flower gardens and trees.
  • Circular driveway for easier transportation.
  • Two completely accessible bathrooms.
  • Wider doorways and hallways.

Learn how you can invest in the new group home and other high-quality services that will continue helping individuals and families in our community reach their potential for productive, fulfilling lives.

For more information, contact Laura Schaaf, Director of Giving, at 814-874-5802.  Your gift will make dreams come true.
