Mission - 2007 SHIM Prospect Park

Those who knew and loved Diane Leeson knew how much SHIM and young children meant to her. Diane spent her professional career in New Mexico and Pittsburgh working with preschoolers. The Mission and Outreach Committee, of which Diane was a faithful and tireless member, decided to participate in a mission project that benefited SHIM and families with children ages birth to five years old. The Family Intervention Center is located in a small apartment in Prospect Park in Whitehall. Most of the families served are immigrants who are benefiting from assistance in learning to assimilate into American culture and how to prepare youngsters to enter school ready to learn. The center has a full-time staff person and soon will expand. There is also a pre-school located in the same building. While the pre-school is furnished and inviting, the Family Intervention Center is in need of paint, carpeting, and serviceable furniture. The Center was rehabilitated during three days in the fall of 2007.
