HOUSTON ENDOWMENT PROVIDES $150,000 GRANT TO BAY AREA
WE NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE TO GAIN AN ADDITIONAL $50,000 GRANT!
Our clients who receive therapy services, or participate in our aquatic exercise classes have seen many improvements occuring in our indoor Natatorium over the last year. These renovations started in 2011, when Bay Area resurfaced the junior Olympic sized pool.
As a result of a $150,000 grant provided by the Houston Endowment the pool and dressing room floors were resurfaced. This grant also allowed Bay Area to replace the leaking skylights over the pool, and to replace the shower heads and faucets in the dressing rooms. In the near future we will be replacing some of the aging mechanical equipment in the natatorium as a result of the grant.
Opportunity Center Program to Hold Mother's Day Plant Sale
The Opportunity Center Program at Bay Area Rehabilitation Center will be hosting a Mother's Day Plant Sale from May 6 - May 10, 2013. All plants will be $5.00 and will support the Opportunity Center Program.
The Opportuntity Center Program provides adults with disabilities site based services, day habilitation, vocational training, home community service, and job placement. The benefit from each of the various areas provides participants with social, life, and vocational skills. These skills allow participants to obtain a sense of empowerment, and to succeed socially in the community.
