CHARLESTON, SC - July 31, 2012 - For the third consecutive year, Lennar Homes has made a $5,000 donation to Windwood Family Services (WFS), a Charleston-area program that provides therapy to children and families.
Windwood Family Services offers residential and outpatient therapeutic programs to children and their families throughout the Lowcountry. With twenty seven years of experience in behavioral, trauma and family services, WFS's goal is to establish healthier roots and strengthen families in the community. WFS provides outpatient treatment at their Mt. Pleasant location, which focuses on individual and family treatment plans. Additionally, their residential program, located in Awendaw, is home to 26 boys, ages 6 to 16, who have behavioral issues as a result of abuse, neglect, or trauma.
"At Lennar, we believe our business is about building dreams. We know that our responsibility to our community consists of far more than just building and delivering quality homes," said Lennar's Coastal Carolina Division President Sam Sparks. "Windwood Family Services seeks to do the same by giving children the skills build a better life."
Kristin Power, Director of Development at WFS said, "The connection with Lennar is a beautiful partnership on many levels - Lennar is building homes for families and Windwood Farms is working to strengthen them by teaching them the skills needed for a balanced home life." Power states, "To maintain the quality of programming we are able to offer, we rely on community support for funding. With Lennar's ongoing support children in the Lowcountry are able to get the help that they need."
