We had such an amazing time at Mardi Gras in February. We had a goal to raise $1500 that night and we raised $2150. Another goal was to find someone to take care of our home’s lawn this spring and summer. Thank you, Wendell Adkins, who volunteered to take care of the lawn this year. Mike Keenoy from KELKAT, Inc. volunteered two days to work on the repairs needed at the house.
The mission of Foundations of Love is to enhance the lives and living environments of low-income adults with developmental disabilities living in St. Charles County.
In 2014 Foundations Of Love began the fulfillment of this mission by purchasing the first home. It is now fully occupied by Aaron, Joshua, and Leonard. Our goal for 2017 is to pay off the loan on the house. That amount is $70,000.
As with all not-for-profits, we have on going needs. Here are some of our current needs:
- Adopt-A-Room to help pay for monthly cleaning services.
- Support the Wishing Well Program.
- Pay off our home and purchase a home for women.
Special thanks to Merle Schneider for being our emcee and auctioneer this evening. Thank you to our Advertisers and Sponsors:
If you are interested in sponsoring any of the above needs, please contact Carol, Foundations of Love.
The Wishing Well program fulfills wishes for adults with developmental disabilities in St. Charles County, in an effort to enhance their quality of life and living environments. Wishes will be fulfilled based on receipt of a formal application, a selection process by the Foundations OF Love’s Board of Directors, and availability of resources to fulfill the request.
As of December 2016, we have granted over 275 wishes. View photos from our Wishing Well Events.
