Construction Beginning on the Cottages!!

A ground breaking ceremony was held on April 22nd to kick-off the beginning of the construction of the new Residential cottages for St. Joe's kids. SJ Kids Foundation President Ja Hillebrand spoke about the history of St. Joe's and the need for the cottages to create a more appropriate environment for the type of children who are now served. He then invited some of the major donors for the cottages to come forward, along with a few of the kids who currently call St. Joe's "home", and they turned shovels of dirt to symbolically begin the construction process.

The four new cottages will provide St. Joe's kids with a healing and appropriate home in a contemporary, less institutional, therapeutic and home-like environment. Each of the cottages will have individual rooms for the children, therapy offices, a dining room, a community area, and counseling rooms. There will also be a quad-like area for the kids to have more privacy from the main building.

Over $4 million has been raised towards the $5.5 million Capital Campaign goal, giving us enough to begin construction. Fundraising will continue for the additional amount needed, and donations of all amounts are appreciated. Visit our Give Five donation page to make a gift to help us reach the goal.
