The Beach Family Foundation, Derby, has awarded Developmental Services of Northwest Kansas a $24,760 grant for technology upgrades and improvements.

This grant will be used in the areas of human resource management, communication, and training and learning opportunities. The new technology will affect programs and services for persons served with intellectual and developmental disabilities and for staff who are the primary resource in serving this population in rural northwest Kansas.

DSNWK will purchase 53 tablets for educational purposes in DSNWK’s College for Living program, and for staff training and improved human resources performance. DSNWK also will purchase four Chromeboxes, which will be used for virtual meetings, saving on travel time and expenses.
