Adopt-a-Home, a new SARAH Foundation initiative to help ensure local housing for people living with intellectual or other disabilities stays tidy and welcoming, kicked off last week with a fall spiff-up and beautification of one of the foundation’s independent living spaces.
“We try to make these homes where we have our clients even nicer places to live,” said SARAH Foundation Executive Director Ken Alberti. “And so that was kind of the idea that we pitched.”
The Guilford-based SARAH Foundation raises money to support a family of organizations all dedicated to assisting those with disabilities in various ways, including finding employment, living independently, and assisting with educational programs and early childhood intervention. Founded in 1957, SARAH serves communities from Old Saybrook to West Haven, providing services for more than 1,500 people in 2018, according to its annual report.
