UH Training Grant Awarded by NNYCF’s Youth Philanthropy Council

UH Training Grant Awarded by NNYCF’s Youth Philanthropy Council

United Helpers is grateful to be receiving a $5,000 grant from the Youth Philanthropy Council of the Northern New York Community Foundation to support medication certification for Direct Support Professionals (DSPs).

DSPs are the day-to-day hands-on caregivers of a very special population of people, adults who live in United Helpers’ IRAs (Individualized Residential

Alternatives) with developmental, intellectual, or brain injury disabilities. These program members have medication needs that are often quite complex.

Following the training, a DSP then is promoted to the role of Med-certified DSP (or MDSP). As a result, they are able to administer prescriptions and other doctor-indicated medications to UH’s program members.

Each year, NNYCF’s Youth Philanthropy Council accepts requests for funds supporting initiatives in Jefferson, Lewis, or St. Lawrence counties. The Council received 27 proposals during the 2021-2022 year.

The Council’s grant program is made possible through support from Watertown Savings Bank, Renzi Foodservice Charitable Foundation, RBC Wealth Management, and gifts made to the Friends of the Foundation Annual Community Betterment Fund.
