and are usually most
intense in hilly areas.
One good place to
check out is the St.
Croix valley, just east
of the metro area.

After years of saving we decided to upgrade 2 of our group homes to provide the best
possible environment we can for our people. We vacated the Holmes house and
moved to a newer larger home on Van Buren street in Shakopee. We also moved from
the Atwood house to a newer larger home on Emerald street in Shakopee. We are
super proud of our new homes and look forward to serving our people in them for
many years to come!
