Valentine’s Day

Our students had a wonderful time spreading the love at Groden North and South on Valentine’s Day sharing carnations with staff and friends. Students also created beautiful Valetine’s Day artwork and enjoyed some sweets! 





Vocational/Life Skills Training Room 

Thank you to all who donated items for our Vocational/Life Skills Training Room at Groden South. Every item donated will help our students gain the tools to build independence and potentially employment opportunities!
In this classroom, our students practice basic life skills like: cooking, cleaning, folding laundry, filing/copying and how to fill out a job application online in mock environments.

The Trimble Grant Funds

For 38 years, our Annual John Trimble Fund Golf Tournament for Autism has provided funds for situations where funding has been unavailable for Groden Network programs. This year we received a record total of 46 grant applications. The funds raised at this years tournament were able to provide yoga classes for clients to reduce stress, a summer BBQ for the Cove Center clients, and treadmills for residences… to just name a few. Thank you to the Trimble Family for your continued support and all who attended the golf tournament! We hope to see you all at next year’s event!
