Lutheran Community Services receives grant


Lutheran Community Services has received $1,600 in grant funds from the Quota International of Central Oregon Foundation to purchase weighted vests and blankets for clients with autism.

The therapeutic tools help children cope with stress, sensory overload, body awareness and helps calm the nervous system.

Lutheran Community Services provides intellectual/developmental disability advocacy and services to approximately 70 individuals and families in Crook County.

March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.

This funding ensures that our clients with autism receive the resources they need and access to opportunities that may not otherwise be available to them.” – Michelle Duff, Lutheran Community Services Communication and Development Specialist
