INARF Member Janus Developmental Services (Janus) has been awarded a grant from The TJX Companies and The TJX Foundation.
The grant is in support of the Doorway’s Art Walk program. For Janus, the funding will be used to initiate a new pottery program for individuals with disabilities. By producing ceramic gift items, the therapeutic pottery program offers participants the opportunity to increase hand strength and dexterity, as well as improve eye/hand coordination and provide sensory experiences.
The primary mission of The TJX Foundation is to support programs that provide basic-need services to disadvantaged children, women and families in communities where The TJX Companies do business. In 2013, the TJX Foundation funded over 1,800 nonprofit organizations in 2013.
