In 2016, 280 at risk children were matched with over 300 mentors and volunteers and over 6700 hours were given to these children by reading and mentoring through I-Beam and I-Beam Camp.
Students love coming to the Miriam Brown Center to interact and learn with the volunteers and professional instructors. “The biggest benefit these kids have is the one on one attention that they receive by the volunteers.”, I-Beam Camp Volunteer
“I love the program and my I-Beam students always look forward to seeing their mentors. Thank you for this program. It makes a huge difference to these students’ lives!”, I-Beam teacher 2015-2016
Fix It! repaired over 15 homes and of these 7 new access ramps were built or repaired making life safer and healthier so people in need can live in a safe environment. From the hospice worker caring after a Fix It! client retelling about the effect the ramp will have on their patient; “After the ramp is built, I can do this and that….” and then when he would talk about the ramp, he would light up. The ramp gave him hope, it opened doors that were not shut for him.
