What would you do to help our seniors and disabled citizens if there were no rules?

With that question, the CDM Living with Dignity (LWD) program was born. Having provided millions of hours of service to Medicaid and other government-funded clients over more than three decades, we became painfully aware of what we couldn’t do, things that made sense to keep a person in their home and keep families together, but just didn’t fit within “the rules.” With a generous initial grant from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust in 2006, LWD continues to raise funds and create partnerships with local businesses and groups in order to solve unique, individual problems that challenge our most vulnerable citizens. The CPI has funded home modifications and wheelchair ramps, helped with purchasing medications, organized volunteer “clean up” parties for client homes, and provided scholarships for services like in-home care and adult day health services. If you would like to volunteer your skills, expertise, or time to the CPI, please email us at .
