Gemma Foundation to Unveil New Hope Bus
Monday, May 02, 2011
Gemma Foundation will put more wheels on the road to bring quality breast health service to Rhode Island women.
The Hope Bus, a 38-foot, residential-style recreation vehicle (RV) converted into a breast health and wellness resource delivery unit, will have its debut tomorrow, as the latest addition to the Gemma Foundation fleet. With the Hope Bus, The Gloria Gemma Foundation plans to deliver its support services, education programs, resources, and tools directly to individuals in Rhode Island’s 39 cities and towns, as part of its Mobile Resource and Wellness Initiative.
“Our residential-style recreation vehicle provides services to the community in the most direct and intimate way possible: face-to-face, helping one person at a time,”said Maria Gemma, Executive Director of the Gloria Gemma Foundation.
The Hope Bus is made possible by a grant from The Halkyard Foundation. The Mobile Resource and Wellness Initiative is supported by The Rhode Island Foundation.
