Women with disabilities have the heart to stand up for social justice

Hi, I thought I would post the need for a very worthwhile project I have been involved with for over 20 years, its the Share House which is a group home for disabled women in Eugene Oregon. I've been on their non-profit board that owns the house that the women have lived in for decades.

Well, as the aged, and are now in their fifties, our outside steps have started crumbling along the edges and pose a safety issue for the women. They used to walk up the driveway which is steep so as they are aging they are using the stairs more.

We are asking for any donation big or small to help us get this project done. Bids are coming in from 3000-5000 dollars.

Does anyone have connections with grants? I did check out the worlpulse resources area but found nothing that would fit our project. We are a very small non-profit and the board are mostly parents and a few community people. I've been their treasurer for over twenty years, they are wonderful women who most of them work and pay taxes, and attend area activities in their community.

Any idea?      Diane DeVillers aka girlpower

Hello Diane,

Thanks for sharing your worthy cause. You could start a gofundme.com fundraiser for the project, or you could also search regularly on this page for grants, too: https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/search-grants.html. Let us know how it goes...

Hope you're having a great weekend!
