The Johnston County Community Foundation awarded Johnston County Industries (JCI) a grant from the Cara Lee Powell Priest Endowment for Johnston County.
This grant was approved by the board of the Johnston County Community Foundation, an affiliate of the North Carolina Community Foundation and will be implemented July 1.
JCI currently serves individuals in day programs that have a diagnosis of mental illness and/or developmental disabilities.
Due to a lack of personal income, other than federal subsidies used for food and housing, and lack of state service dollars to cover costs of community integration activities there are no resources for individuals to tap into to be able to integrate and enjoy the benefit of activities within the community.
