A Gift for Stephen’s Place!

The long awaited opening of Stephen’s Place, a non profit community for adults with developmental disabilities, has finally arrived! The Construction & building of the community was fully funded by the Kuni Foundation and private donors.  Stephen’s Place first residents recently moved in and  more are on the way! With residents moving in, a need for transportation was apparent. Kuni Automotive stepped up to help and this past Friday held a special ceremony at the Kuni Garage to present a brand new fully loaded 2015 Honda Odyssey to the staff and residents!
