GREAT NEWS!!!
On December 11th ILCHV was awarded an NYS grant totaling $150,000 to renovate our third floor.
BUT in order to be able to spend the funding we need a 25% match. So far we have raised over $42,000 towards the $50,000 match. If you have not done so yet, please help us help people with disabilities realize equal rights and independence by supporting ILCHV’s expansion of services and programs to the third floor.
Mail your donation to ILCHV, 15-17 Third Street, Troy NY 12180 or donate on-line at: http://www.ilchv.org/donate_buy_paypal.htm
