Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-1st dist.) announced Kin Wellness and Support received a Community Project Funding grant of $200,000 for its facility, which is aimed to create a comforting, non-medical retreat that offers care and support to all who battle cancer in Bucks County. The grant was introduced by Fitzpatrick into the FY2022 Consolidated Appropriations Act as a part of the Community Project Funding program. This new initiative allows members of Congress to target federal funds toward projects and programs within their congressional districts that will address the most significant needs facing the communities they represent.
Kin Wellness and Support Center, formally known as Corinne Sikora Wellness and Support Center, offers an array of free services providing all guests a place to have their holistic non-medical – yet critical – emotional, social, physical and lifestyle needs met throughout their journey of treatment, recovery and beyond. With the secured funds, Kin Wellness and Support Center was able to put the funds toward its capital improvement program and aided in its procurement of technology to carry out their services.
“As someone whose family has lost loved ones to cancer, as so many have, I know the devastating impact that this disease has on families nationwide,” Fitzpatrick said. “The services provided at Kin Wellness and Support Center are so crucial to the mental health and wellness of their patients that are undergoing cancer treatment. As co-chair of the bipartisan Congressional Cancer Caucus, I’m proud to support a project that will provide potentially life-changing services to help those battling cancer.”
Kin’s 5,000-square-foot facility supports more than 50 volunteer practitioners and instructors who provide integrative services, fitness, yoga and support that is accessible to all Bucks County patients and caregivers.
