Unity House of Cayuga County, Inc. has been awarded a 23-HUNDRED dollar grant from the Legacy Foundation in Ithaca.

Unity House operates a dozen residential sites and two-day habilitation programs in Tompkins County for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Each site provides its own nursing coverage for those individuals, approximately 230 people in total.
These grant funds will be used to buy 14 digital tympanic thermometers and probe covers, and 14 wrist blood pressure monitors to better serve and care for these individuals.
