Crossville and Louisville Tile of Knoxville Help Make a House a Home
The new Sertoma Center duplex in Knoxville, Tennessee is a residence designed specifically for adults with developmental disabilities. The facility gives people with unique challenges a place to call home. Crossville and distributor partner Louisville Tile of Knoxville had the honor of contributing tile to help make the space extra special for residents. The facility features Crossville tile in eight rooms, offering an appealing style and product performance to be a great solution for the long term.
Sertoma Center is an organization dedicating to serving adults with developmental disabilities by providing the highest quality of residential, vocational, and community services available. When the center started running low on physical space to serve all of their clients, the Labor of Love project was born. Local East Tennessee news station WBIR teamed up with the Homebuilders Association of Greater Knoxville and the Knoxville Area Association of Realtors to help the Sertoma Center build a new facility to house six of their residents. For the majority of the individuals served by the organization, Sertoma truly is a home – and a good one. Residents stay in houses in the area with round-the-clock care, and are taught basic life skills in a happy, fun-loving environment.
With the help of volunteers and donations of time, skills, and supplies, the Sertoma Center duplex reached completion and will be home to six adults by the end of the year. Members of the center and the six residents moving in toured the home for the first time on November 12.
These Crossville products are featured in two kitchens and six bathrooms.
