Road To Independence is pleased to announce that we are the recipient of a Community Grant from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. We received a grant award for $10,000 a year for three years through the generous support of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. This grant is made possible by gifts from the following funds: Charles B McLane Family Fund, G Lawton and Louise G. Johnson Fund, and Keane Family Fund.
We are excited to use the grant award from New Hampshire Charitable Foundation to further develop our farm and bakery programs as well as for board development. Our programs offer empowering opportunities to individuals with mental and physical challenges through our non-riding equine therapy, horticultural, bakery and community outreach programs. RTI operates its’ farm program from Goshen, NH and the bakery program at Aurora Bakery, 29 Main Street, Newport, NH. Through our various program options, participants learn and improve life skills, gain self-confidence and self-esteem, and are active and productive members of our communities.
