After careful consideration, we have transitioned Wedgwood’s 60th Anniversary Celebration to an online experience to provide a safe environment for those we hold dear
In 1960, in an old house in Grand Rapids, Wedgwood’s first home for vulnerable teens was founded. The residents arrived, having experienced abuse and neglect, to find house parents who provided grace-filled care and thoughtful structure. The family dinner table in that first home was a place of nourishment for body and soul as house parents established healthy traditions of sharing, encouragement and prayer.
Sixty years later, Wedgwood is still a safe place for kids to heal and the family dinner table is the heart of that process. Staff in the homes today are committed to providing that same grace-filled care. We are grateful for the amazing transformations taking place around those dinner tables and know that God is at the center of it all.
We invite you, our extended family to join us for Wedgwood’s Family Dinner Experience, presented by Eastbrook Homes, to celebrate 60 years of caring for some of the most vulnerable individuals in our community. On Wednesday, October 14th at 6:30 pm, you’ll be able to join our community of faithful supporters, online, for:
+ Exclusive Cooking Demonstration from Chef Jenna Arcidiacono of Amore Trattoria Italiana, hosted by WOODTV/WOTV’s Maranda
+ Message from Wedgwood’s new CEO, Dan Gowdy
+ Award Presentation: Doug & Lois Nagel Leadership Award presented to Bill & Sally Swets; Molly Guillaume Volunteer of the Year Award presented to Dr. Stefani Boutelier
