Your monetary donations make a difference in the lives of those we serve. We do receive Medicaid funding for the individuals who live here in order to provide a comfortable, healthy and clean living environment.
Josina Lott strives to move the individuals forward! Everyone should be able experience a baseball game with the Mud Hens, go to dinner and view a movie, expand their horizons through art classes at the Toledo Museum of Art, Copper Moon Studios and Lourdes University, learn about the history of early American settlers at Sauder Village or spend a day at Cedar Point. The individuals at Josina Lott should be immersed in and experience the community just as you do! Additional funding to our 2014 Annual Appeal made these life experiences possible with your support.
Last year we implemented an iPad program; made possible through donations from our 2013 Annual Appeal. Individuals are utilizing the iPads to create resumes, follow recipes during kitchen skills, expand their knowledge of art and practice life skills.
Another exciting one-of-a-kind program in our area is our Inclusive Miles Running Club. Thanks to a grant from the Toledo Roadrunner Club mentors are training runners of all ages and abilities. They then go on to compete in local 5K races and marathons. To-date they have participated in group run at Second Sole, Josina Lott 5K Jog & Jaunt, Glass City Marathon 5-person relay and will run the Starr Spangled 5K and Feet on the Street. During their winter training sessions DGL Consulting Engineers came forward with a donation to provide all 11 members with new running shoes from Second Sole.
In the recent past donations have been used to replace the camera security system on our grounds. Providing a safe and secure living environment is in our mission and something we take very seriously each and every day. Each year we also use funds from donations to purchase Christmas gifts for the individuals who live here, some of whom have no remaining family to celebrate the holidays with and participate in gift exchanges.
Another recent accomplishment for Josina Lott Foundation was to be recognized as a charitable organization in good standing with the Better Business Bureau. Our organization has been evaluated according to the 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability. This organization meets all those Standards and is a BBB Accredited Charity
