The Michigan Children with Special Needs Fund received a $50,000 grant from the Rollin M. Gerstacker Foundation. The Department of Community Health says the money will be used to help Michigan families that have children with special health care needs purchase indoor home ceiling and stair lifts. The agency says the home improvements also minimize health issues parents and caregivers experience as a result of frequent lifts and transfers of children. The CSN Fund is housed in Children’s Special Health Care Services, a program that helps families address the medical care and treatment needs for certain eligible medical conditions for children that have special health care needs. The CSN Fund was created in 1944 to help children with special needs when other sources of funding are not available.
