Inspire Continuing Care of Geneseo, Illinois receives funds from Geneseo Communications Charitable Foundation to support the launch of a new young adult care facility in Geneseo.

As part of its commitment to give back to the community, Geneseo Communications Charitable Foundation recently announced that it will donate $10,000 to Inspire Continuing Care of Geneseo, a new daytime community program for young adults with unique qualifications.

“We are extremely grateful to Geneseo Communications Charitable Foundation,” said Jenn Johnson, co-founder of Inspire Continuing Care of Geneseo. “This program has been in the planning stages for over two years. In part, through Geneseo Communication’s support, our vision is becoming a reality. Their funding will help cover some of the operating expenses as well as support some of the activities planned for ICC participants such as, field trips in Geneseo and the Quad Cities area; cooking skills including how to plan, shop, and prepare a dinner to bring home “ready to bake” for their family to enjoy; learn about and participate in local current events; take part in recreational exercise activities, local entertainment programs, explore community services opportunities and more.”

Inspire Continuing Care will provide an opportunity for post-high school adults with unique qualifications to gather during the daytime with supervision, to ensure their continuing access to social, emotional, and physical enrichment and well-being are supported as they transition out of the public-school system. Young adults with unique qualifications may include but are not limited to assisted communications methods and devices, assistance with mobility, feeding and or personal care. In part the objective of this program is to help fill a need within the area that will help meet the necessary one-to-one needs these young adults require on a daily basis.
