Dear Friends and Supporters,
As we approach the holiday season once again, I can’t help but look back on the past year and all that’s been accomplished here at Wendell Foster. For starters, we took a close look at how our physical facilities functioned, built a new maintenance shop, began work on an additional facility for our outpatient therapies, and prepared the grounds for future expansion of our kitchen and laundry facilities. And that’s just the physical facility growth.
More importantly, we saw a rise in the number of people we served over the last year. Did you know we served over 600 children and adults through our outpatient therapies? Sixty-five people benefit from our Community Living and In-Home Supports, and 94 people live in our intermediate care facility or in homes through our residential options. Add to that nearly 1400 people who use our Technology and Resource Center and we realized we are supporting over 2,000 people! Oh, and I forgot to mention that in addition, 2,227 transportation runs were provided through our contract with GRITS.
This incredible outreach is only possible because of you. Your donations support our facilities, our programs, our therapies, and everyone we touch each year. We need you! We need your financial support, your encouragement, and your prayers. There are several ways to donate: you can select the donate button at the top of this page, on our Facebook page, or mail your donation using this form.
Thank you so much for your continued support and we hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
VP of Development
