This Year's Project: Day Services Supplies
About Our Organization
Trivium is a non-profit organization committed to behavioral health, mental health, and long term support services. We serve those who are seeking help but haven’t had their needs met.
Previously known as Crossroads of Western Iowa, Trivium has a long history of empowering those with developmental disabilities, intellectual disabilities, chronic mental illness, and brain injures towards independence. Our services help clients reach their full potential at home, at work and in their communities.
Our mission is simple: Creating Hope. Empowering Lives. Inspiring Communities. We achieve this mission by serving those who are looking for help but haven’t yet had their needs met.
Current Project: Day Services Supplies
Hello Donors! At Trivium Life Services, we provide housing and services to adults with varying disabilities, as well as mental and behavioral health support. We would like to be able to purchase a variety of curriculum supplies and activities to assist us in enriching the lives of the individuals we serve in our Day Services/LINKS program.
Sioux City Lift Van
Our clients are always on the go, but they don't get there by magic!
A lift van is vital for getting clients safely to medical appointments, community outings, and their jobs. Trivium currently has six vehicles that serve our 48 residential clients, living across twelve home, and additional day habilitation clients. Two of our vehicles, including the only van equipped with a wheelchair lift, are frequently unusable due to needed repairs. While we planned to update the vehicles this year, the cost of the vans has gone up nearly $20,000 since last year!
With your support today, we will be able to purchase a new vehicle that gets our clients where they need to be safely.
Fresh Start Fund
Hello Donors! At Trivium Life Services, we provide housing and services to adults with varying disabilities, as well as mental and behavioral health support. Often times, when a new individual moves into one of our houses, they lack some of their basic necessities. To help them feel at home and give them a "fresh start", we provide them with a clean, new bed, a dresser, and fresh clothing-- specifically clothing that can be used for a job interview. Change isn't always easy, but the Fresh Start Fund helps ensure a smooth transition and makes sure each indivudual is set up for success.
We hope you'll consider supporting the Fresh Start Fund with your donation today.
In order to enable our clients to practice social distancing and self-isolate as needed in Crossroads-supported homes, we have developed an enhanced day programming model. Your gift, whatever the size, will support our clients living with disabilities and/or traumatic brain injuries as they participate in community integration opportunities that will keep them safe and healthy at this unusual time.
Many of our clients participate in virtual interactions with community volunteers as part of our Across the Road program. For example, a client who loves the Harry Potter series is able to virtually connect with a volunteer with a similar love for the books. Together, they read at a selected time each week. Other interactions include virtual cooking classes, screen-to-screen time with the newest additions to the Humane Society, and a virtual fire station tour and Q&A with firefighters.
You can help further our mission to enhance the lives of those we serve by making a gift today.
