 The Lincoln Trail District First Steps Program received a $7,000 grant from the WHAS Crusade for Children. 

Kelly Basham, First Steps District Supervisor, stated that the grant funds are being used to purchase assistive equipment and technology for the developmentally delayed children that First Steps serve in the birth to 3-year age range. 

“We are so excited to be chosen for the WHAS Crusade for Children grant,” said Basham. “We will be able to provide children with equipment needed to improve their quality of life and to help them progress to their maximum potential.”
