The CHN Foundation provided the University Of Michigan Department of PMR with a $10,000 grant to assist with the needs of persons with spinal cord injury during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Funds will be provided to the Ann Arbor Center for Independent Living (AACIL) and their staff to service those in need of basic assistance and support services. Tom Hoatlin and collaborators plan to make available support group activities for those interested in discussing with peers and mentors how they are being affected by this pandemic and their needs. The AACIL will make referrals to resources available in the community. Funds will also be used for those in need of purchasing cleaning and sanitization supplies, masks, medical supplies, transportation and other immediate needs for those living alone or with limited resources during this crisis.
