Keeping Families Together
BB&T Bank Volunteers
In addition to the BB&T Volunteers help with painting, yard work, and washing and cleaning the IHN vehicles, BB&T donated funds to purchase new blinds for the IHN facilities, a new ramp for the IHN box truck, and other needed supplies.
Families Moving Home
Families in our "Families Moving Home" program participated in a Ropes Course with their mentor families. The Ropes course helped to build problem-solving skills, strengthened relationships and encouraged open communication. Our families participated in team-building exercises and a high-ropes course that helped people face obstacles and overcome fears.

Holiday 2010 – Day Center
Wishing you a blessed holiday season and a new year that fills your home with happiness.
On Saturday, September 11, nearly 300 volunteers came out in the pouring rain to volunteer their time and talents on 7 different community projects. The day was entitled "IMPACT JC." The event was sponsored by 3 congregations in Johnson City and the national United Methodist Church.
The 7th IHN Songfest was enjoyed by a record audience of over 500 people in the historic 105-year-old Veteran’s Administration Theatre. This year’s event raised over $11,000 for IHN of Greater Johnson City!
Thank You Melissa!
Network committee volunteer coordinators had the opportunity to meet Cathy Lagergren, the new IHN case manager and to wish Melissa Davis well as she leaves her job with IHN. Melissa's last day is Sunday, December 2nd. Cathy has already started working with IHN training under Melissa.
