Developing Potential, Inc.
in Success Stories
was recently awarded a $50,000 grant from the Health Forward Foundation, Applicant Defined Grant
to support the Increase Access to Services program.
The program serves all DPI participants (160) and staff (65). These funds will support the program’s full-time registered nurse. The nurse oversees DPI’s medical services, providing direct support through comprehensive health assessments, medication administrations, choking risk assessments, GI tube feedings, and many other tasks. The nurse also educates program participants and staff on healthy lifestyle topics, and trains staff in medical issues like medication side effects, fall awareness and prevention, procedures for addressing seizures, and many more.
