Pittsfield, MI

Manresa Caravan, after building the “Denis A. Roux Home,” in Romulus, Michigan, had a future goal of more housing for the developmentally disabled through retardation, in southeastern Michigan.

Ordono Caravan #129, chartered in 1958, in Livonia, Michigan, was at a time in its history of advancing age and a declining membership. The remaining Sir Nobles with a strong support group of Sultanas, many of them widows of past members, decided to retire their charter. Ordono approached Manresa Caravan to how best depose of their funds to help our special people. An opportunity to help Manresa build a home for four ladies, from the now closed Our Lady of Providence Center, was the perfect answer.

With that donation and funds from the Manresa/Magna Golf Outings we were able to purchase the property in Pittsfield Township and groundbreaking took place October 7, 2005 on our four-bedroom 2093 sq. ft. home, it took 97 days from groundbreaking to dedication thanks to the management of Gerald Roux Homes Inc.

Dedication and blessing by Father Stan Tokarski, was January 14, 2006. The parents manage the Ordono Home, under the auspice of Washtenaw County. We have four young ladies able to live in a family atmosphere in our community.
