SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) — A home for developmentally disabled adults hit hard by California's drought will remain open thanks to a $500,000 donation designed to keep its water flowing.

Officials with the Annenberg Foundation said Wednesday that they decided to make the donation after reading about the water crisis at the Los Angeles Residential Community, known as LARC Ranch.

The Los Angeles Times reports the aquifer beneath the Santa Clarita-area facility is empty and its wells have run dry. LARC has resorted to trucking in water.

Annenberg's donation will ensure that LARC has sufficient access to water while a permanent solution is reached.

LARC Ranch, founded in 1959, serves 103 full-time residents on its 65-acre campus, as well as 80 day-program clients.
