LEND logoSummer brings heat and activity is heating up in Loudoun. Transportation, Home Healthcare, Youth in Transition, Advocacy and Outreach along with an increasing number of referrals for LEND services keep us busy.

LEND would like to update our Personal Assistance Service (PAS) Registry for Loudoun County residents. If you know of someone looking to be listed in our Registry as a caregiver, please contact Ruchika at 703-525-3268, or the LEND office for an application.

We have been working with local government and nonprofit community partners on surveying the transportation needs of people with disabilities. Thanks to the Loudoun residents who took the time to participate in the survey. If you did not get to complete the survey prior to June 30th, we would still like to hear your transportation concerns.

LEND continues to bring legislators in to our offices to share the Independent Living message. We are working to meet with Loudoun representatives at all levels.

Plans are being finalized to show a series of disability-themed movies throughout Loudoun and partnering with our friends at Loudoun County Public Library System.

LEND has a few of the long-term care printed guides left or you can get the guide on the website at www.ecnv.org, click on LEND Latest News. If you have questions about the guide, please contact Tracee Garner at 571-291-9550 or traceeg@ecnv.org. We hope people will look at this Virginia specific guide and share it with others as a tool for viewing the long term care options with confidence.

LEND has need of a few more Advisory Board members interested in providing input from Loudoun County. Your contributions to the Board can strengthen advocacy and assist in efforts to address the needs of people with disabilities in Loudoun. Please contact LEND’s Director, Bill Ward for more information on joining LEND’s Advisory Board at 571-291-9550 or billw@ecnv.org.
