Sunbeam is expanding, both inside the building and as well as outside. Ursula Randlaine, our previous director, has taken a job with the local city administration and is still very closely connected with Sunbeam. Liana Pold serves as the interim director while we search for a permanent director. And yet, at this time of transition Sunbeam continues to thrive.

Sunbeam is managing a large project helping children with disabilities in their homes and in schools. Sunbeam now has about 30 case workers helping over 80 children in the community, and there are about 15 children participating in the Sunbeam day program in our building. Because of this new growth, Sunbeam needs to hire a social worker to manage all the case workers.

And, we’ve recently applied for a grant to completely renovate the exterior of the building, improving insulation and making many other improvements. Right now, the Central Methodist Church of Oslo, Norway is helping install a new floor in our third group room:
