Donate to TradeWinds

Friends of TradeWinds:

It is hard to believe TradeWinds Services has been serving children and adults with developmental and physical disabilities for over 55 years. Some of the times over those years were very challenging, and some things have changed, but our mission has remained focused – “Serving people with special needs by empowering them to realize their full potential.”

We provide specialized care in our programs – all-inclusive childcare and youth summer camps; adult day programs; speech & occupational therapy in local school classrooms; deaf services advocacy & support; employment opportunities in the community and at our facility; residential living support; and our newest community service, TradeWinds Community Pantry.

Your gift to TradeWinds helps those with diverse abilities receive vital professional services, empowering individuals to improve their quality of life.

No contribution is too small to make an impact!

Please consider a donation at a level you are comfortable with to help make a difference in the lives of children and adults with special needs from our community. Your donations may be tax-deductible*.

Thank you so much for your support and for making a difference,

Jon Gold, CEO
