THE ISSUE

 

WHY WE NEED UNIVERSAL ACCESSIBILITY

Addressing the need for universal accessibility at the MIYJCC is a priority. As you can see from the images depicted on this page, the difficult situation caused by the stairs in a few critical areas of the building continues to present significant challenges. Additionally, for safety and 

security purposes, our goal is to become a one entrance facility. Currently, our main entrance does not allow accessibility to all areas of the building, and many members and visitors need to use multiple alternate entry points. 

EVERYONE WILL BENEFIT

 

Seniors  |  Alzheimer’s Respite Participants  |  Veteran’s Support Groups  |  Clients with Special Needs  |  Families with Children in Strollers

 Members in our Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and Traumatic Brain Injury Programs  |  After School/Daycare Parents  |  All members

THE SOLUTION

ACHIEVING OUR GOAL

| Our goal is to RAISE $1,000,000. This will be accomplished through a variety of different funding sources: Individual Donors at all levels, Foundations, and Major Gifts. With your support, this goal can become a reality and make a difference in the lives of so many who enter our building.

 

| A new building extension, which will house the new ramp, will PROVIDE UNIVERSAL ACCESS for all of our program participants, including those in wheel chairs, using walkers, and parents with infants in strollers. In addition, a smaller ramp will be installed in the Early Childhood wing that leads to three of our classrooms and the Ilene Porter Outdoor Nature Classroom and playground.

 

| The campaign will also provide MORE GENERAL UPGRADES throughout the building to better serve our community. This includes new floors in the 200 hallway and the Roth Family Multi-Purpose Room, renovation of the bathroom in the Alzheimer’s Respite room, and the creation of a handicap-accessible playground. In addition, repairs will be done to the roof and boiler room to prevent more serious problems in the future, and increase member and staff comfort within the building. We also plan to make modifications to our downstairs auditorium, and at our summer camp at the Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds.
