The sasi Foundation Board of Directors is pleased to announce two funding awards for the fourth quarter of 2017, totaling more than $3,500.
The Board approved a Rifton Activity Chair to be purchased for the Eden Day Program for the amount of $1,550. The chair has short legs to help individuals with short stature to maintain upright posture. The chair will assist individuals with maintaining safe posture during meals, increasing independence with table top activities, and additional sensory needs and pressure relief.
The Board also approved a request to purchase 20 GPS navigation devices for agency vans, in an amount not to exceed $2,000. Staff frequently drive to unknown areas to take the individuals we support to appointments and other outings, and GPS devices would provide turn-by-turn directions, without requiring staff to look at paper directions or memorize the route.
