On Thursday, August 20, 2015, ADVANCE hosted a capital campaign kick-off at their Division Avenue location. The event marked the start of fundraising for the building of a new group home to be located on Main Avenue South. The new home will provide a residence and supportive services to eight people with disabilities. Present at the event were members from the ADVANCE Board of Directors and the ADVANCE Foundation, as well as staff and people receiving services from the organization. ADVANCE, a private, non-profit agency, has provided comprehensive services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Brookings community for over 40 years. Their combined programs support 200 people in eastern South Dakota. The new home will be their 10th residential facility. For more information about their new project, or to donate, contact Brian Ardry at 605-692-7852.
