Fresno County Nonprofits Provide COVID Support Through Disability Equity Project
This week the Fresno County Board of Supervisors voted to extend funding for the Disability Equity Project, a coalition of six local organizations that serve individuals and families living with a wide-range of disabilities. For the past year, these organizations have worked in partnership to help their clients through the pandemic. Exceptional Parents Unlimited, which supports children with special medical and developmental needs, has served as the project’s lead agency. Valley Edition Host Kathleen Schock spoke with its chief executive officer, Lowel Ens, about how how the coalition was formed and what its future holds.
