Less than a year after the kickoff of the Hope, Compassion and Possibilities Capital Campaign, the outpouring of generous support from individuals, corporations, and foundations has helped EHCA surpass its fundraising goal. The construction of the first new home for residents with complex medical conditions is underway!
On September 18, we broke ground in Fairview on our first medically equipped home. It takes the work of many hands to tackle a project of this scope, and we have been privileged to work with the best. Once the Fairview home is complete, we will start on a second home in Millcreek Township.
In addition to moving the current residents in our main facility out into the community, addressing the state waiting list for services has always been a major priority of the campaign. The directors of our residential program have already started contacting institutions and agencies statewide to let them know EHCA will soon have openings in skilled care homes.
We are deeply grateful for your tremendous support of this project, this agency and, most importantly, the individuals who will live in these community homes. Because of your generosity, more children and adults who need our care will find a home at EHCA.
