The Moore Center has been awarded a grant for $7,000 from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation in support of one of its primary programs, Family Support Services. The program supports over 1,300 families in the community who have a family member with an intellectual/developmental disability and enables them to care for their loved one at home. The grant will specifically allow for the purchase of adaptive equipment for children with complex medical needs.
“Many of the families we serve have children with extraordinary healthcare needs that surprisingly are not always covered by insurance,” said Maureen Rose Julian, vice president of individual and family services at The Moore Center. “These families face enormous pressures that go above and beyond the typical stresses a family may face. We are incredibly grateful to the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation for their generous support which will directly impact and improve the lives of these children.”
Through its Family Support Services, The Moore Center provides the resources that help children and adults with intellectual, developmental and personal challenges to function optimally as a family unit.
