Developmental disabilities agency opens 2 facilities

Sunshine, Inc., of Northwest Ohio, during an open house yesterday on its Maumee Western Road campus in Springfield Township, showed off two facilities that have opened to help families cope with the round-the-clock care of children with developmental disabilities.

Visitors saw the "respite house - a five-bedroom home donated, moved to the grounds, and renovated - which is a place where Lucas County children with disabilities can stay overnight for as long as two weeks, allowing family members to go on vacation or take a break from care-giving. The respite house project cost $100,000, Christine Keran, Sunshine director of family support services, said.

Sunshine showed off its adjacent multi-purpose facility, built at a cost of $300,000, which is used for teen and young adult weekend respite programs, Mrs. Keran said.
