Solid Start Fund
Some participants find it difficult to pull together financial resources to begin living independently. The Solid Start Fund removes the financial barrier participants may face as they move into their own home. Participants may receive one time funding, up to $3,500 for household necessities — beds, dressers, towels, a kitchen table and dishes, for example — to help ensure they receive a solid start to independent living. With the necessities in place, participants can focus on mastering independent living skills. Donate now.
People Can’t Wait Fund
Most Riverfront participants rely on a fragile funding system for day-to-day living. When a piece of that system shifts, services can lapse and participants find themselves in limbo. The People Can’t Wait Fund was developed to provide temporary funding so participants can continue services while alternative funding is secured. The fund provides security and continuity during times of transition and ensures Riverfront participants stay on track to meet their goals. Donate now.
The lives of individuals with disabilities improves drastically when they achieve their goals. The Innovation Fund provides critical resources to enhance, expand, or add innovative services—beyond funding for ordinary programs. The fund paves the way for the innovations that help Riverfront participants meet their goals. Donate now.
Real Hope Endowment
The number of people with disabilities is increasing, and our entire population is aging. Public funding is not keeping pace with the increasing needs for long-term support, but through the Real Hope Endowment, together we can provide opportunities for real work and real life for people with disabilities. The Real Hope Endowment supports a myriad of innovative solutions, including personalized behavioral support plans, fitness equipment, therapeutic tools, job training and more. Donate now.
