The Foundation’s COVID Emergency Fund provided funding for 37 grantees of Kessler Foundation’s employment grant program. In this mini-series, we explore how our COVID emergency grants supported these nonprofits as they adapted to a new reality, enabling us to continue toward our common goal – helping individuals with disabilities reach their goals of independence and self-sufficiency. In this episode, I spoke with Purna Rodman, President & CEO at Pillar Care Continuum, of Livingston, New Jersey. Pillar Care Continuum operated 15 group homes that needed to provide around-the-clock care for adults with severe disabilities and medical challenges. While most residents formerly spent their days in day programs, these programs closed during the pandemic, thus creating a need for a third shift of staff members. The Foundations Emergency Grant enabled staff members shift/dedication bonuses to continue 24-hour care.
