qol_bridgingbarriers_200x200I smile every day here when I learn about how Reeve Foundation Quality of Life grants tangibly change lives. A picture tells a thousand words, and we were so pleased that a recent $6,963 Quality of Life grant to the Sterling-Rock Family YMCA in Sterling, IL enabled the facility to install 3 low-energy automatic door openers. “These doors provide access to those with disabilities to provide life-changing health experiences,” wrote Michael Mohr in a letter of support for the project. Michael is a wheelchair user pictured here with 2-year old Emma Allison, who also helped make the project happen, and Executive Director Doug Vandersee, who is holding the actual Reeve Foundation Quality of Life grant check.

Check out this and other recent Bridging Barriers grants.
