As it has for the past six years, Road to Responsibility (RTR; http://roadtoresponsibility.org), one of the region’s largest and most successful nonprofit organizations supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, is the grateful recipient of a donation from the Edwin M. Johnston Jr. Family Foundation.
The latest contribution from the Foundation has funded a project to replace siding, windows, and garage doors at the organization’s residential community home in Kingston, Massachusetts.
The Edwin M. Johnston Jr. Family Foundation has been a faithful donor to Road to Responsibility since 2017. The private foundation, based in Buffalo, New York, funds educational and charitable organizations, provides services for individuals with disabilities, and supports families in need during the holidays.
“The Johnston Family Foundation is proud to support RTR’s mission to make lives better! We would like to thank Road to Responsibility for continuing to support our family member, Matthew E. Mitchell, Jr.” said Sarah Johnston on behalf of the family’s Foundation.
“Our appreciation to the Edwin M. Johnston Jr. Family Foundation is immeasurable,” said Christopher T. White, Ed.D., President/CEO of Road to Responsibility. “The Foundation has been a staunch supporter of ours in recent years and we appreciate their investment not only in the residential property, but also our organization’s mission!”
About Road to Responsibility, Inc.
Celebrating 35 years of making lives better, Road to Responsibility, Inc. (RTR) was established in 1988 with the overarching belief that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities deserve to have full, rich, and rewarding lives in the community, and therefore works to provide the means, the opportunity, and the support necessary to allow citizens with disabilities to take their place as productive members of the community. RTR offers residential, work/employment, day habilitation and other day supports to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. RTR supports individuals with very diverse needs, including those with significant challenges who would otherwise go unserved if not for RTR. It succeeds where other organizations often fail, through the use of an integrated clinical behavioral approach. This model has proven successful and yielded positive results for the organization and the individuals served.
Road to Responsibility offers services to almost all the towns and communities throughout the South Shore and South Coast of Massachusetts, operates 49 residences as well as co-operative and supportive living apartments, and manages nine day-service locations that focus on education, employment, and community enrichment. Road to Responsibility’s main office is located at 1831 Ocean Street, Marshfield, MA. For more information, please visit www.roadtoresponsibility.org.
