Norma F. Pfriem Foundation donates four vehicles to Kennedy Center

The Norma F. Pfriem Foundation donated three Nissan Quest vans and one Nissan Altima to the Kennedy Center, which maintains one of the largest private, nonprofit transportation systems in Fairfield and New Haven counties. These new vehicles will help meet the daily transportation needs of people with disabilities.

“The Kennedy Center, one of the largest rehabilitation agencies in Connecticut, is very appreciative of the Norma F. Pfriem Foundation for its continued generosity over the past several years,” said Martin D. Schwartz, president and chief executive officer of the Kennedy Center. “We thank Paul Miller, chair of this foundation, as well as the other foundation trustees, for recognizing the importance of our programs to enhance the lives of others. Transportation services receive minimal state funding, yet are necessary for our clients to access services and employment.”

“I applaud the Kennedy Center for constantly developing new and outstanding programs and services for people with disabilities,” Miller said. “The agency has an excellent reputation in the community and is well deserving of our continued financial support. I am extremely proud of everything they have accomplished to help their clients reach their fullest potential.”

Five years ago, the foundation funded the Kennedy Center’s Alzheimer’s programs, now collected under the aegis of  the Norma F. Pfriem Foundation Alzheimer’s Center, at Faust Hall in Bridgeport. The Alzheimer’s Center is the only facility of its kind in Connecticut that serves people with disabilities. This program has filled a service gap for aging adults with both an intellectual disability and Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
