The Chanda Plan Foundation is preparing to move into a new building and expand services to help more people who are physically disabled.The foundation is in the midst of fundraising for a new facility about eight times the size of the current location, 8725 W. 14th Ave., in Lakewood. The new space a few blocks away — 1630 Carr St. — should be ready in April, but some fundraising is needed.
The Boettcher Foundation recently awarded $75,000 to the Chanda Plan as part of its social services grantees.
“These are projects I get so excited about. They’ll not only be better able to serve this population, but preliminary data shows they will be able to do it in a cost-effective way,” said Julie Lerudis, Boettcher Foundation grants program .
