CDS Life Transitions/Warrior Salute

We were happy to return to CDS Life Transitions, Warrior Salute Veteran Services, to present another Grant to support our nation’s veterans. Through transitional housing and case management, veterans receive several types of assistance during transition back into their community. Warrior Salute Veteran Services offers all-inclusive, supportive housing services for Veterans at their Nucor House. The program is aimed at providing a strong, supportive community to help veterans reach their personal therapeutic, social, educational and community goals. Transitional housing is open at no cost to male veterans who demonstrate the desire and motivation to benefit from all services offered.

St. Mary’s Kids

We were happy to return to St, Mary’s Kids to fulfill another Grant request. Our funds will be used to purchase an additional Eye Gaze device. The Eye Gaze Communication system helps children communicate where previously, due to speech and other impairments, they could not. The device reads the child’s eye movements and thereby allows communication. The Eye Gaze devices have been greatly beneficial to so many kids at the St. Mary’s Kids facility, allowing them an ability to communicate with others to a degree that once seemed impossible! Truly a great investment!
