Monarch receives technology grant to help improve the lives of people with disabilities in Currituck
Monarch recently received a gift that will fund important technology initiatives for people with disabilities in the Outer Banks. The Board of Directors of the Outer Banks Community Foundation awarded Monarch’s Lighthouse Club of Currituck a $2,400 grant that will be used for adaptive technology including several iPads.
The funds were granted from the Foundation’s Pauline Wright Fund, which supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism and Down syndrome.
Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities will use this technology for rehabilitation, recreation, to assist with more effective communication and for daily use. Participants of the Lighthouse Club of Currituck, a day program for adults with disabilities, will now have the potential to gain more independence and communicate more effectively with the use of new technology.
