Advocates Receives Grant from the CNY Community Foundation
The Central New York Community Foundation (CNYCF) recently awarded Advocates a grant for $10,000 from the John F. Marsellus Fund to establish infrastructure that will allow for an enhanced method of service delivery.
With plans for a fall roll-out, the eVero Family Portal, a cloud-based platform, will give people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families greater control over managing their daily Medicaid documentation and Self-Directed budget/family reimbursement documentation through technology.
CNYCF is the largest charitable foundation in Central New York and strives to strengthen local nonprofits and address community issues. The vision of CNYCF is to create a vibrant Central New York community that “provides opportunity for everyone and builds a hopeful, prosperous region for future generations.”
Advocates appreciates CNYCF’s support for an electronic records program to help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. More information will be forthcoming as we near the roll-out date.
