Local General Contractor Combines Forces with Residents at Westside Drive Group Homes to Benefit Children and Adults with Developmental Disabilities
Taylor teamed up with local Heritage Christian Services Group Homes on Westside Drive in Chili, NY for this past Saturday’s Heritage Christian Legacy Mile & 5K. The team – dubbed the Westside Walkers – raised money and built awareness to ensure that people with developmental disabilities continue to have the highest quality care now and in the future.
“It’s been very rewarding for our staff to team up with the residents at Westside Drive,” said Taylor CEO, Jim Taylor. “Together we’ve seen what can be done when people with different life experiences come together to work for a common goal. We’ve learned much from each other and contributed positively to a successful community event.”
Taylor has worked with Heritage Christian Services for over ten years; building five group residential homes, the 24,000-square-foot state-of-the-art multi-purpose community center Pieters Family Life Center, and the 10,000-square-foot Expressive Beginnings Child Care on Commons Way in Henrietta.
