Jubilee recently received two grants that help us support adults with disabilities. Grants are an important component of Jubilee’s funding as we continually seek to innovate and improve to best serve our community.
A grant from The Arc Maryland and Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council provides funding to refurbish desktop computers for people we support. Being able to use a computer and connect remotely was a lifeline during the pandemic, and it will continue to be an important skillset and tool for the people we support. Tico Sanz came to the office last week with his parents to receive his computer and a wireless mouse, keyboard, camera, and speakers. “The computer should be a real life-booster for Tico,” said Agnes Diaz, Jubilee’s Person-Centered Planning Manager. There are few computers still available to people we support, if you are interested, please contact Alex Kalomas at firstname.lastname@example.org. Specialist
Thanks to a grant from the Maryland Community Health Resources Commission (CHRC) as part of the DDA Relief Act, Jubilee will now be able to purchase a new financial system software. Investing in Jubilee’s software and infrastructure is a valuable tool as we grow and serve more people in the community.
