Today our Center celebrated the completion of our first ‘Granting Freedom’ grant application. Our Center’s consumer, a United States veteran, expressed appreciation for the support he received in the process to obtain a walk-in shower adaptation, replacing the standard bathtub he could no longer use with ease.
