Quality of Life Grants: 1st Cycle 2009: Coping and Caring
Fiesta Educativa, Inc.
Los Angeles, CA
This grant will help to fund Si Se Puede (Yes We Can), a project that will provide a special strand at the annual bilingual conference to be held at The California Endowment on September 21, 2009, that will highlight issues related to families living with paralysis. A specially developed outreach plan will help to identify 100 families/caregivers that will benefit from the strand. Successful professionals living with paralysis will be identified to develop and lead conference workshops and who are the true “Si Se Puede” models. Grant funds will help to underwrite the costs for speakers, translators, and conference materials. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000338).
