Sycamore Services has applied for, and been awarded, several grants by state and local entities. Working with Hendricks County Senior Services, Sycamore created the LINK project. LINK Hendricks County was partially funded by a grant from the Indiana Department of Transportation. The grant assisted in the purchase of passenger vans that are available to help meet transportation needs of seniors and persons with disabilities. Each year, tens of thousands of riders use Link to keep medical appointments, to receive therapies or to get to jobs.
The LINK transportation system include Morgan County. Sycamore in collaboration with Coordinated Aging Services of Morgan County provides rides to Morgan County seniors or persons with disabilities to help them meet their medical and employment needs.
Another grant from the Indiana Housing Finance Authority provided finding that allowed Sycamore to convert an existing building into apartments. Sycamore used the grant to convert the original building at 405 Lincoln Street in Danville, to a 5-unit apartment complex targeted to seniors and persons with disabilities.
The apartment construction and the Link transportation project were developed with Hendricks County residents at heart. The population of the county has been steadily growing in the last 10 years, though options for seniors and people with disabilities have remained the same. We seek grants that will provide benefits to residents of the county, not just those enrolled in a Sycamore program.
