Giving the disabled a chance at a regular life

I was reading recently about a non-profit organization in Philadelphia that has created a mainstream living opportunity for the severely¬†disabled so that they do not have to live in a nursing home, which is often the case.¬† This organization has given new hope and new life to disabled individuals in a way people didn’t think was possible. The name of the organization is Liberty Housing Development Corporation.¬† Liberty’s chief executive officer, Bruce Connus, said “the mainstreaming concept differs dramatically from the traditional use of federal funds to place the physically disabled in nursing homes. So much so, he said, that Liberty’s 16 independent-living apartments and the 41 scheduled for development this year put Philadelphia in the national forefront of “freeing people who are trapped in nursing homes.” I urge you to read more about this fabulous project in Philadelphia by visiting this site http://bit.ly/adgYjX
