The BATC Foundation proudly showed off its latest project in October with a moving ribbon cutting ceremony. Working with the St. Michael Foundation and build partner Minnesota Design and Construction Inc., the BATC Foundation expanded and remodeled a group home in St. Michael for four young men with special needs.
Chief among the improvements was a new kitchen, where these residents like to gather at the new center island, cook together or enjoy a meal at the dining room table. The BATC Foundation’s addition included a large deck and new flooring throughout much of the home.
“We took an unsafe kitchen badly in need of repair and elevated this group home to greater access and efficiency,” said Bob Bennett, the BATC Foundation manager.
Parents of the residents, St. Michael Foundation volunteers and staff from the home joined BATC Foundation leadership, Minnesota Design & Construction staff, Senator Mary Kiffmeyer and Representative Eric Lucero at the ribbon cutting.
