Audubon among Sherlock Center grant recipients

Posted 8/11/14

PROVIDENCE – The Audubon Society of Rhode Island, Providence Public Library, the town of Westerly and Yawgoo Valley Ski School have received grants totaling $9,895 from the Paul V. Sherlock Center on Disabilities at Rhode Island College.

The Access for All Abilities mini-grants are funded through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ division of Administration on Developmental Disabilities. The intent is to increase access for people with disabilities to community activities that foster inclusion.

The Audubon Society will use its grant to fund the resurfacing of a trail for handicapped access from the Environmental Education Center at the Claire D. McIntosh Wildlife Refuge to Narragansett Bay. Providence Public Library will use its funding to create a toolkit containing easy-to-use technology supports for those with visual or auditory impairments.

Westerly will use its award to purchase a MobiChair beach wheelchair, which floats and reclines, allowing users to participate in water activities.

Yawgoo Valley Ski School in Exeter will provide specialized training for 10 experienced ski instructors to work with skiers who have developmental disabilities or autism. •
