Nexus House Renovations Are Complete!


The expansion project for the Nexus program has been completed, allowing students and staff to enjoy the new and improved facility. The renovations include new floors, paint, more spacious rooms and a new multi sensory room. 

The renovations of the Nexus Program - a day training program that serves adults with developmental disabilities who require a higher level of care - was funded by Suncoast Charities for Children from net proceeds raised during their annual Fisk and Friends Celebrity Golf Classic.

Our sincere gratitude goes to Kearney Moving & Storage, JE Charlotte Construction, Britton's Carpet One, Triple Crown Corp. Painting for all of your hard work! Huge thanks to all Loveland staff who helped in this major project which will impact so many lives.
