For decades, Warren County Handicapped Services has operated out of a small former home that was not ADA compliant.
To meet the growing needs of the county, the nonprofit agency is now ready to operate out of a much larger facility.
Construction is nearly complete on the 4,900-square-foot facility in Warrenton, which will allow the agency to triple the amount of individuals who can attend its adult day program and add new programs for people with developmental disabilities.
Thanks to a recent Operation Round Up grant awarded in the amount of $9,930, the new facility has new kitchen appliances to be used as part of the adult day program.
The grant was the latest in funding assistance the agency has received to make the facility project possible. Handicapped Services was awarded a $500,000 community development block grant. The agency still has tax credits available for businesses who donate to the project.
