Each year, a local special-needs family is chosen as the recipient of a home remodel. These renovations transform the child’s space to meet medical and physical needs while greatly enhancing their quality of life at home. The work is done by volunteers. Much of the funding is raised at our annual music festival, Bloomin' Bands.
