December 18, 2013 at 6:50 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Investors Foundation, which supports nonprofit organizations that enrich the diverse communities served by Investors Bank, has awarded a grant of $5,000 in support of Cerebral Palsy of North Jersey's (CPNJ) Horizon School in Livingston.
CPNJ was founded in 1953 and provides a wide range of educational, therapeutic, and social programs to enhance the lives of children and adults with various disabilities. CPNJ's programs include: an Early Intervention Program that serves more than 600 infants and toddlers in Essex and Bergen counties; three adult day programs that serve more than 190 adults with developmental disabilities; numerous group homes and specialized apartment facilities throughout Northern New Jersey; and after-school programs at Livingston schools.  
The agency's Horizon School, which has operated for 36 years and serves students with severe or multiple disabilities, is currently preparing to launch a therapeutic preschool program that will require the renovation of two classroom spaces. CPNJ has raised grants and secured funds toward its project budget including a $120,000 grant from the Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey. The Investors Foundation grant will provide the final $5,000 necessary for the project to commence.
"Our new preschool rooms will be furnished with the latest educational and therapeutic equipment available, and will be fully outfitted to accommodate preschool-aged children with various disabilities," said David Bishop, CPNJ's VP for Development and Communications. "We are enormously grateful to the Investors Foundation, and to all our donors and funding partners for their generous support of our mission."
"Every year, more than 1,500 families benefit from the outstanding services and outreach provided by CPNJ and its affiliated programs," said Investors Bank President and CEO Kevin Cummings. "They have our best wishes as they move forward with this important preschool renovation project."
