WHAT: The BATC Foundation, partnering with local agency Homeward Bound and Build Partner Vujovich Design, will hold a grand opening to celebrate the completion of their latest charitable project the remodeling of Bluebird House, which provides services to four medically fragile men.
The Bluebird House is a group home operated by Homeward Bound, a local service agency providing high quality care to children and adults with disabilities. The four men who live at Bluebird House needed more space, so Homeward Bound contacted the BATC Foundation to help. A typical 1950’s rambler, none of the rooms in Bluebird House were large enough to accommodate the residents along with their medical equipment. The Foundation’s Build Partner, Vujovich Design Build, based in Minneapolis, added more than 1,000 square feet including a bedroom, family room, bathroom and an upstairs laundry room. The changes are designed to better serve the residents of Bluebird House and significantly improve their quality of life.
WHEN: Tuesday, February 16, 2015 from 3 pm.
LOCATION: 6452 Bluebird Circle, Maple Grove, MN 55369
WHO: There will be several people participating and making remarks during the ceremony including: Representatives from the BATC Foundation Board of Directors, Homeward Bound, the City of Maple Grove (??), Vujovich Design Build and the many subcontractors who helped build the addition.
BACKGROUND: For more than 20 years, the BATC Foundation has tapped the talents and resources of our member builders, remodelers, and suppliers, often in partnership with other local charities and organizations, to help families who otherwise might not have the opportunity to have a safe and affordable home.

Homeward Bound was formed by a group of parents who needed a high level of medical care for their children, but wanted a more home-like atmosphere than a nursing home could provide. Today, Homeward Bound operates three Intermediate Care Facilities and 14 group homes in the Twin Cities area for disabled children and adults.
