Recent News


TradeWinds Services received new grant funding to help with the costs associated with emergency preparedness and training drills at our facility. We will be able to purchase and install proactive safety precautions and equipment for our classrooms and offices at the main facilities. Every day we are trusted to provide a safe and secure environment; preparation and training drills for different types of emergencies are essential to safeguarding our clients and the staff who provide services for them; it is a responsibility of the highest priority. This additional funding will help offset some of these necessary safeguards; it will help us achieve our goal of maintaining a secure, safe environment. These activities will be made possible, in part, by a grant from the Legacy Foundation and the Crown Point Community Foundation COVID-19 Response Funds. Thank you to both foundations for the support.
