We are pleased to report that the Rolin M. Gerstacker Foundation awarded a matching grant in an amount of $30,000 toward a barrier-free, vertical platform lift (VPL) for our Care Chapel! This award was based upon Caregiving Network raising $10,000 in matching funds. Through local churches and private donations, Caregiving Network was able to raise more than $17,500 in matching funds and the VPL has been installed and is operational!
In the fall of 2018, The Barstow Foundation granted Caregiving $15,000 toward ADA compliant bathrooms - also necessary to re-open the chapel for ministry growth.
In February 2019 Blessed Sacrament Church awarded CgN with $2,500 toward appliances, for the chapel community teaching kitchen. St. John’s Lutheran Church also gave towards the chapel community teaching kitchen.
We are blessed to see how God is providing the funds, donated engineering expertise and skilled labor from many local tradespeople; as well as donated furnishings to help the Chapel project stay on track. It is our hope to sponsor our Grand Opening this summer. Please check back often for further updates!
