Developing Potential, Inc.
in Success Stories
was recently awarded a $53,066 grant from the Health Care Foundation of Greater Kansas City
to allow adults with developmental disabilities to actively participate in health care programs where they can progress toward self-care and the highest level of independent living possible.
HCF funding will provide compensation for the registered nurse who provides oversight, direct service and training and education to more than 150 clients, their families and caregivers at three locations. Funding will also be used to cover a portion of the costs for a certified yoga instructor, who will help clients improve both their physical and mental health by learning to focus on their body, their breathing, and stress reduction. The Increase Access to Services program serves DPI clients through annual health screenings, education, and care for clients’ daily medical needs.
