LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A local group that serves the disabled has received more than $1 million to move its clients into places that seem more like home. Cedar Lake just received a $1.22 million grant from the James Graham Brown Foundation.
The non-profit is the region's largest care provider for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The money will be used to build new homes, with the idea to get people away from a campus setting and into a typical neighborhood.
Cedar Lake President and CEO Chris Stevenson explains, "The whole idea is that individuals with high intense medical needs can be served in the community, can go to church, can have friends, volunteers, natural support."
This grant is the largest in Cedar Lake's 43-year history.
