LISLE, Illinois— Ray Graham Association announced a DuPage Foundation grant for $20,000 to supplement funding for medical, dental, and vision expenses for people with disabilities in DuPage County. Medicaid does not cover many of the medical, dental and vision costs. However, this partnership expands Ray Graham Association’s longstanding practice of covering the costs for those in our care to receive all of the healthcare they need, regardless of coverage. Chief Operating Officer Mark Langan says, “Many people with disabilities rely on Medicaid to live healthy and meaningful lives. This generous contribution will provide even more opportunities for the people we serve to reach, grow, and achieve.”
Founded in 1950, Ray Graham Association serves nearly 2,000 people with disabilities and employs nearly 350 people. Ray Graham enriches lives by empowering those we support and those who care for them to reach, grow, and achieve. For over 20 years, the Council of Quality and Leadership (CQL) has accredited Ray Graham Association for our leadership’s vision of dignity, opportunity, and community for all people. 87% of every dollar donated to Ray Graham Association goes directly to people with disabilities.
