Thank You Crown Point Community Foundation

The Crown Point Community Foundation is providing grant funds to help TradeWinds with upgrades to our group home located in Crown Point. These funds will allow for the addition of a side driveway for more parking space for our van and staff vehicles, along with some landscaping, adding raised garden beds and picnic tables. The residents of this house will benefit from more time outdoors with a new learning experience by growing fresh vegetables in their backyard, more usable space for visiting with family and friends, and increased recreational activities. All of these benefits will combine to improve the health and welfare of our clients in an enjoyable environment. Thank you to the Crown Point Community Foundation for this opportunity to improve the lives of our clients.
