Automatic Doors at New Beginnings

Posted On: April 23, 2013

Automatic Doors at New Beginnings: This year marks the 2nd Anniversary of the New Beginnings Center, and it’s going to be an exciting one! The number of families and victims of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) we have served in our community has doubled since we first opened and we are keeping up the pace with a projected 1200 more served this year. However, as we are growing and working to provide hope and therapeutic services to those with cognitive disabilities, we have had to work around a problem at our Medford Community Center. The main doors of our building do not open automatically, and this is an obstacle that must be faced every day by those in wheelchairs and those who walk with assistance. It is ironic how we fought so hard to open doors of rehabilitation and independence for TBI survivors, yet they require assistance to enter through our doors every time they come for a therapy session. Automatic doors for our building would cost an estimated $5,000 but the gain would be far greater. It would mean increased mobility and independence for every survivor that comes through our doors, a welcoming entrance to inspire hope for all who need our help. If you would like to donate to this specific cause, place click here to make a donation or mail a check to New Beginnings – 12-B Platinum Court, Medford NY 11763. Please feel free to contact me at ajscerri@gmail.com if you have any questions. Donate money for automatic doors.
