INDIANAPOLIS – New Hope of Indiana is honored to announce it has received a $30,000 grant from The Thomas P. and Sondra D. Sheehan Charitable Foundation, a partner of Hamilton County Community Foundation.
The funds will be used to support needed renovations on several of the organization’s 46 congregate living homes. The money will also be used to launch a new summer camp in 2022 designed for young people with developmental disabilities and their siblings.
“Many parents seek alternative childcare options for their children with disabilities during the summer months, but struggle to find a camp where both their child with a disability and their child without one will thrive and receive appropriate care,” said New Hope of Indiana CEO Allison Wharry. “Camp Catalyst will provide a fun, safe environment for children of all abilities.”
Camp Catalyst will be a week-long camp experience with a combination of trained staff who are prepared to care for the basic, daily needs of individuals with disabilities and volunteers who want to give their time to offer children an educational and exciting camp experience.
New Hope provides community-based residential services throughout Central Indiana and a variety of therapy, day, vocational and transition services to more than 400 individuals with disabilities every year.
For over forty years, New Hope of Indiana has supported individuals and families, encouraging them to live their most independent lives. Through services for individuals with disabilities and advocacy efforts, New Hope of Indiana is making an impact in our communities every day. For more information, visit www.newhopeofindiana.org.
