The Community Connections program currently serves forty individuals with physical disabilities, and more than half are diagnosed with a mental illness. The cost to provide meaningful programming to each individual exceeds the reimbursement for services Bona Vista receives. Bona Vista looks to community partners, individual contributors and local organizations for additional funding to assist the adults in Community Connections.
Kevin Johnston from Duke Energy states, “Duke Energy is proud to support a vital program such as Community Connections. Bona Vista is meeting a need in our community and making a difference in so many people’s lives.”
INARF congratulates Bona Vista on receiving the grant and applauds the Duke Energy Foundation for supporting this important program.
