U.S. Representative Frank Mrvan visited Paladin recently, a Michigan City facility providing support and opportunities to children, adults with disabilities, and seniors. The congressman announced a contribution of $1.525 million in federal funding to help the facility renovate and repurpose its existing space to be modernized, accessible, with room for more classrooms and job training opportunities.
Paladin Inc. serves our community by advocating for people with disabilities. The services range from supporting the individual in living in the community as independently as possible, day program services, assist in obtaining and keeping community employment and behavioral supports.
Their team reached out to us last year in need of renovating unused space at their facility to allow the agency to provide services to an additional 120 individuals. We’re so excited to see this project come to fruition and the momentum of support that has followed. Congressman Frank Mrvan visited Paladin last week to announce a contribution of $1.525 million in federal funding to assist with renovation costs. Congressman said it best, “What greater investment is there than the quality of life for all, and equal opportunity of everyone to participate in that quality of life?”.
Tonn and Blank is proud to be a community partner leading the design and construction efforts.
