Wheeling Township Funds Agencies That Support Residents with Disabilities
Mar 21, 2018 8:23 AM -
For nearly 40 years, Wheeling Township has funded local agencies that provide specialized, direct support to residents in-need. In total, the township allocates more than $700,000 annually to agencies that support the homeless, families in crisis, those dealing with mental health issues or domestic violence, and residents with disabilities. Oftentimes, when parents become senior citizens and have children with developmental disabilities, concerns arise over how their children will be cared for when they are unable to be there for them due to old age or sickness, or when they pass away. Supportive education and services that address these issues and others are funded by the township to assist residents with disabilities.
