CWI was awarded a Charles R. Wood Foundation Grant for $21,540 to renovate the outdoor space at their Park Club Day Program building located in Hudson Falls, NY (pictured). The project addressed the need for increased accessibility to safely use outdoor space for elderly program participants. The grant funds were used to build an even terrain outdoor patio with a roof to provide shade as well as the purchase of some outdoor furniture.
Thanks to The Charles R. Wood Foundation, the Park Club Day Program participants with unsteady mobility can more freely use the outdoor space. Also, those with sun-sensitivity can now spend quality time in the outdoor area without risk of adverse health affects. Additionally, program participants and staff are now enjoying more opportunities for activities in the space and are exploring how best to utilize this wonderful new aspect of their program.
