The services of Logwood Village, which has 85 intellectually disabled residents, are utilized to aid in funding their much needed operations.
They have created work opportunities for the intellectually disabled and provide permanent residence for adults, respite care for short term placements and contract work in a protective workshop.
All work in the protective workshop is completed meticulously, with great pride and determination by the residents, despite life’s vicissitudes. Work opportunities are also provided by Logwood, to the impoverished surrounding community to enable them to earn an income.
PackMan subcontracts some packing to Logwood as part of our ongoing partnership, this ensures sustainability for Logwood Village and provides stimulation and a sense of worth for its residents.
