Developmental Services, Inc. is asking the community to support its second annual Client Emergency Fund Drive during the holidays.
The Emergency Fund is a safety net for DSI clients who have immediate needs, especially when government financial supports are delayed or unavailable.
Last year, DSI reached its fund goal of $5,000 – used for such needs as purchasing coats for clients who walk or ride their bikes for transportation, and temporary rent and utilities for an individual who had just switched guardians.
This year, DSI’s goal for the Emergency Fund is $7,000 as the agency is anticipating a greater need for emergency support.
