Proceeds from the 2016 Stair Climb Challenge supported the Renewal of Luther Special Care Home. In early 2014, the expansion of the 1st floor dining room was completed, providing residents with more space for programming, more natural light and improved access to the outdoor courtyard. The next phase of the Renewal will be to remodel the 1st floor kitchen as an open, welcoming, non-institutional space that will serve as the "heart of the home."
