In fall of 2015, Hope Strengthens Foundation (HSF) partnered with Martha’s Vineyard Community Services (MVCS) to establish a fund dedicated to provide targeted support to individuals and families who greatly benefit from their Disability Services program.
Through this partnership, MVCS identifies disabled community members who have specific and unmet needs that can be overcome with the resources that HSF and our donors provide.
In December, 2015 resources from the fund were used to provide support to a local family that includes two young sons who have developmental disabilities. A stair lift was purchased and installed in their home, which added safety and security when moving the boys between the living space downstairs to the upstairs bedroom and bathroom areas.
A big thanks to our donors and MVCS for their outstanding partnership and support!
