Unified is grateful to have received $3,500 in funding from The Civitan Club of Baltimore. This donation was used to purchase iPads and hardware necessary to set up a virtual day program for our Baltimore region during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Creating this new virtual environment allowed 44 adults with disabilities living in the Baltimore region to re-engage in meaningful activities via Zoom, alleviate anxiety by resuming their normal daily routine, stay connected to their peers and families during quarantine, as well as conduct virtual nursing appointments when necessary. We are extremely thankful for the support of The Civitan Club of Baltimore. It has been life-saving and has made a world of difference to the individuals in our Baltimore region and their families.
The Civitan Club of Baltimore is celebrating 100 years of service to the Baltimore region, focusing on assisting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and organizations that support the I/DD community. The Baltimore Club, founded in 1921, prides itself on a “Century of Service.” In conjunction with the Foundation for Children with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (FCIDD), it has provided grants to many local agencies and has significantly impacted the quality of life of citizens with disabilities in the region.
