Passages thankful for gift from Whitley County Community Foundation
As was announced in an article on the Talk of the Town, Passages recently received a $100,000 commitment from the Whitley County Community Foundation. The funds from the Community Foundation, as stated in the paper, will be used toward remodeling the Lehmberg medical building. When completed, it will be the Passages’ Creative Learning Center. The Creative Learning Center will allow Passages to better serve our clients and to offer services that are currently unavailable.
For 57 years – since 1954 – Passages has been an integral part of the Whitley County community. During these years many things have changed; yet what remains constant is the basic mission of Passages and our commitment to this County and to people and families affected by a disability.
The commitment of the Whitley County Community Foundation to Passages means a great deal to Passages. Besides being financially important, the commitment of the Community Foundation is also a statement of belief and support for our work. We are also fully cognizant that the monies under the stewardship of the Foundation come from the good people from this community.
On behalf of the individuals and families we serve, the Board of Directors and staff, I want to thank the Community Foundation, and thus the citizens from this area, for your belief in the mission of Passages.
