Sponsor an Event

Celebrating 50 Years of Service

Because “special needs” cover a wide range of challenges and care requirements, TradeWinds now delivers a wide range of flexible individualized services for children and adults.

Following a move to a more central Northwest Indiana location in January 2014, more people with special needs and their families are benefiting from the services provided by TradeWinds. As a result, we found it necessary to lease an additional 10,000 sq. ft. across street to accommodate the growth in enrollment plus new partnerships with Deaf Services (January 2014) and The Chicago Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired (June 2015).

In order to continue providing the personalized services that make a measurable difference in the lives of people with special needs and their families in Northwest Indiana, TradeWinds relies on community support and hosts four major awareness-building events each year:



Golf Scramble for Kids

Deaf Services Luncheon 

Please consider the importance of becoming a TradeWinds’ Annual Event Sponsor for 2017, our 50th Anniversary, as we remain committed to our roots as a provider of essential services for children even as other local agencies have recently made the decision to cut similar services because they lose money.
