Hansgrohe U.S. Helps “Champions” Live Independently
This fall, our Hansgrohe U.S. business unit made a donation to the Georgia-based nonprofit Champions Community Foundation for its housing program known as Champions Place. A first-of-its-kind shared living environment built specifically for young adults with physical disabilities—such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, and physical injury—Champions Place is a safe, accessible, and affordable residence from which residents can live independent and productive lives, while benefiting from the latest adaptive technology including access-controlled automated doors; voice-activated lights, TVs, fans and shades; and much more.
Though the typical resident of Champions Place has a part-time job, the majority of residents are considered low-income with several having incomes at the poverty line. Thus, the monthly fees for living at Champions Place require subsidies in order to make them affordable to residents. Hansgrohe’s donation will be applied to this subsidy program to help adults with disabilities continue living life to the fullest within this innovative community.
