Program for disabled gets $30K grant

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Arc Hamilton County has received a $30,000 grant from a local trust for a program to help families make long-term plans for the needs of children with developmental disabilities.

        The “Families Empowering Families” program is funded by a grant from the Jacob G. Schmidlapp Trust, managed by Fifth Third Bank.

        More than 105,000 people with mental retardation or other developmental disabilities and their family members live in Hamilton County.

        “Given that the number of people in our community with mental retardation and developmental disabilities continues to grow, support for families in the way of education, outreach and advocacy is critical to planning for their futures,” said Lawra J. Baumann, vice president, Fifth Third Foundation.
