Quality of Life Grants: 1st Cycle 2009: Coping and Caring
Adelante Development Center
This grant will help to support Friends in Time, which provides critical hands-on support services for people with severe chronic neuromuscular diseases in New Mexico. The project will connect people in this vulnerable population to a team who will help them create a comprehensive care plan, inform them about their diagnoses and medical options, serve as advocates, loan them assistive technology and medical equipment, and help them to remain as independent as possible. Grant funds will help to support programmatic expenses. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000338).
