MUNCIE, IN (April 12, 2018) -- On Thursday, Toby Thomas, the President and Chief Operating Officer of Indiana Michigan Power, presented a $225,000 check contribution on behalf of the American Electric Power Foundation to Hillcroft Services for the Building Better Futures campaign.

The grant marks a significant step forward for the Building Better Futures campaign, which will allow Hillcroft to:

  • Consolidate services from several sites into one, providing Hillcroft the opportunity to better serve clients on one main campus with greater accessibility.
  • Remodel of existing space in the Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) Clinic offering the opportunity for increase capacity, allowing Hillcroft to begin serving more children on the autism spectrum.
  • Create an additional 100 new jobs within Hillcroft Industries by December 2024.
  • Increase growth in our manufacturing division, Hillcroft Industries, by employing individuals without disabilities to work alongside our clients creating a fully integrated work setting.

Hillcroft Services President and CEO, Debbie Bennett, stated, “Hillcroft Services is very appreciative of the commitment and support received from the American Electric Power Foundation toward our building consolidation project. Their investment in the lives and workforce development of this initiative sends a powerful message to the communities served by this agency.”

In presenting the check, Toby Thomas stated, “Indiana Michigan Power and Hillcroft share a common goal – to serve East Central Indiana in ways that improve the quality of life for individuals and help our communities grow and thrive.”

“Hillcroft has a long history of helping individuals with disabilities build skills that develop their lives," Thomas added. “I&M and the AEP Foundation are pleased to help the Building Better Futures campaign build the platform for Hillcroft to offer exemplary services to the community for decades to come.”

In the coming months, Hillcroft Services will be embarking on the public phase of the Building Better Futures campaign. Hillcroft is looking forward to watching the community come alongside them in investing in the future of Hillcroft Services’ facility consolidation and expansion just as I&M AEP Foundation has done.
