A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO

Dear friend!

It’s hard to believe that 50 years have passed since TradeWinds Services embarked on a journey to impact and transform the lives of people with special needs and their families. Times and terms may have changed, but our mission to help those we serve realize their full potential remains the same.

Having spent more than 30 years working at TradeWinds, I have witnessed visionary Boards of Directors, dedicated volunteers, grantors, clients, employees, and community sponsors who have helped us to realize this tremendous milestone.

Organizations like the Pirates came aboard at the very beginning and never left our side. They have donated their time, talent and close to $4 million since we opened our doors. Over the years, more and more companies, foundations and individuals have embraced the important work of TradeWinds. Now, I invite you to join us as we gear up for another 50 years of making a difference in Northwest Indiana.

Your support of TradeWinds events help those with special needs receive critical, professional services. When our clients experience programs like child/adult daycare, speech/language therapy, deaf services, employment opportunities and residential support, they are individually empowered to improve their quality of life. No contribution is too small to make an impact!

Since 1967, TradeWinds Services has achieved phenomenal growth, and with your help, we are poised to do much more in the next half century. On behalf of our clients, staff and the entire TradeWinds family, thank you in advance for your willingness to be a part of something life changing.

You can help us empower a child or adult with special needs to realize their full potential. Please give a gift today.

Respectfully! 

Jon Gold, CEO
