Wesley Village receives grants for 2014

SHELTON >> Wesley Village is the recipient of two grants for 2014 for Wesley Heights Assisted & Independent Living Community.

Wesley Heights, a senior living community on the Wesley Village campus, received a one-year grant of $8,000 from the David N. Lane Trust for Aged & Indigent Women. Established in 1964 to support and promote quality human services and health care programming for underserved older women living in Fairfield and New Haven Counties, the trust is managed by the Connecticut based Philanthropic Solutions office of the Bank of America, N.A. Funds from the grant will provide assisted living services for low income elderly women living at Wesley Heights.

The community also received a one-year grant of $10,000 from the Valley Community Foundation (VCF) to support assisted living services to low income elderly residents of Wesley Heights Middle Court Apartments. The VCF was established in 2004 and distributes hundreds of thousands of grant dollars each year to support the local nonprofit sector and the people it serves. Wesley Village also received a $250 sponsorship from the VCF to support their 6th Annual Road Race, which benefitted life enriching programs for seniors living on the campus, as well as the PTA of a neighboring school, Long Hill Elementary.
