The Polk County Board of Supervisors provided a Community Development Grant in the amount of $100,000 to On With Life for development of the therapeutic grounds project. On With Life is transforming 1.5 acres of green space into multi-faceted outdoor ADA-accessible therapeutic grounds that will provide sensory stimulation experiences, therapeutic challenges and respite for persons served and their families. The creation of this new outdoor space will have multiple physical, psychological and social benefits for those On With Life serves.
Community Development Grants are funded from Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino profits.
