Heartspring to host campus expansion open house
WICHITA, Kan. –Heartspring will host an open house for phase one of its Expanding Possibilities campus expansion on Thursday, January 11 from 3-6 p.m. The afternoon will include a presentation, tours of the new spaces and refreshments. Phase one includes a new group home, an addition to the Pediatric Services and Autism Services building and a remodel of the residential school cafeteria and group homes.
“We are very excited to show the community what their support has created,” David Stupay, president and CEO, said. “These new spaces mean we can serve more children who desperately need our help.”
Heartspring provides a wide range of services and therapies to nearly 1,000 children through the Heartspring School, Pediatrics Services and Autism Services. This is the first major campus expansion for Heartspring since the organization moved to its current location in 1998. The demand for Heartspring’s services has grown significantly since then. The Expanding Possibilities campus remodel and expansion is designed to meet the increases in demand.
With phase one finished, fundraising is set to begin for phase two which will focus on a new building for the residential school’s competitive integrated employment and music programs.
“We have several opportunities for the community to continue to support our Expanding Possibilities project,” Stacie Williamson, director of development, said. “Our supporters make a difference in the lives of children with special needs by giving them the resources they need for more independent lives.”
