Today, TradeWinds is a full-service agency providing services from infants to seniors. TradeWinds has continued with our children’s programs of all-inclusive Child Care, Children’s Summer & Functional Skills Camps, and Speech & Occupational Therapy in local classrooms. Our adults with developmental and physical disabilities programs include Adult Day Activity Program & Training (ADAPT), Pre-Vocational Services in Packaging & Assembly and Order Fulfillment, Sewing Manufacturing, Sign Shop, and Employment Services; Residential Group and Supported Living Homes; Respite for Caregivers, Deaf Services; TradeWinds Community Pantry, and a Chicago Lighthouse Low Vision Clinic for residents of Northwest Indiana.
We take great pride in helping our participants reach new goals every day. For over 55 years, TradeWinds has continued to meet the increasing need for these services, making a direct impact on the lives of local children and adults with special needs, their families, and the Northwest Indiana community.
