WHAT: The BATC Foundation partnering with Homeward Bound and build partner Vujovich Design will hold a groundbreaking ceremony to launch their latest charitable project, the remodeling of Bluebird House, which provides services to four medically fragile individuals.

WHEN: Thursday, July 30, 2015 from 10-11 am

LOCATION: 6452 Bluebird Circle, Maple Grove, MN 55369

WHO: There will be several people participating and making remarks during the groundbreaking ceremony including: Representatives of the City of Maple Grove, the BATC Foundation, Homeward Bound, volunteers, businesses who have donated product or labor to the project, and other government officials. Family members of the residents will be in attendance as well.

ABOUT: The Bluebird House is a group home operated by Homeward Bound. The four young men who live at Bluebird House needed more space, so Homeward Bound contacted the BATC Foundation to help. A typical 1960’s rambler, none of the rooms in Bluebird House are large enough to accommodate the residents along with their medical equipment. The Foundation’s Build Partner, Vujovich Design Build, based in Minneapolis, will be adding a bedroom, family room and additional storage space. The changes are designed to better serve the residents of Bluebird House and significantly improve their quality of life. Many local Twin Cities businesses have donated materials and labor to make this project happen.


BATC Foundation – 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 people who otherwise might not have the opportunity to have a safe and affordable home.

Homeward Bound – The organization 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.
