Stay at Home in Wilton is one of five nonprofits that help seniors have full lives at home that will share a grant of $11,000 from Fairfield County Community Foundation. The grant will support a joint advertising program to increase awareness of their organizations, what they offer and their needs for support. The ads will appear this spring in the Hersam Acorn Arts & Leisure section, which is part of The Bulletin.
The other nonprofits are At Home in Darien, At Home in Greenwich, Quality Living At Home in Ridgefield and Redding, and Staying Put in New Canaan. All five serve their local communities with services that allow seniors to live comfortably in their existing homes while enjoying the full benefit of community living. They applied for the grant as a group, said Phil Richards, board chairman of Stay at Home in Wilton.
