SBRN Receives a Grant from the WITH Foundation for the Empowerment Retreat
The Spina Bifida Resource Network (SBRN) is proud to announce that it has been awarded $2,200 from the WITH Foundation from their Discretionary Funds.
SBRN will use the grant in support of its Empowerment Retreat for adults with disabilities, which will be held virtually from September 25 – 27, 2020. The Empowerment Retreat is a unique, peer-led, fun and interactive three-day conference designed to increase independence, socialization, self-esteem and overall growth of individuals with disabilities through community building and the exploration of relevant topics. This year’s theme is “Healthcare Hacks: Be the Boss of Your Best Life. The funds will be used for workshop leaders, retreat coordinators and marketing.
“SBRN is very honored to receive this funding for our weekend-long retreat. This is our first year holding the event virtually and these funds will allow us to offer a variety of compelling workshops that will explore the intersections of disability and healthcare delivery to allow people to re-imagine their well-being and access to healthcare. Thank you to the WITH Foundation for their support in empowering individuals with disabilities to live their best lives,” said Roberta Kestenbaum, Executive Director of the Spina Bifida Resource Network.
