Mission

Laurel Mountain Improvement Foundation (LMIF) is a charitable foundation that seeks to provide support to families in our community through a variety of programs.  We have begun operations with our Firewood for Low and Fixed Income Families, providing firewood at a greatly reduced rate to families struggling to heat their homes in our cold Pennsylvania winters.  This operation has been functional since 2008.  Our Healthy Meals for Shut-Ins Program provides nutritious, organic, homemade meals to elderly and/or disabled persons in our community. This program has been initiated in 2010 on a very small scale and requires funding to expand. We plan to have a dietitian supervise this program.
 
Future projects still in the planning stage include the Upgrade of Existing Housing for the Handicapped project, and our most ambitious undertaking, the Fitness Center for Obese Children and their Families.  The Housing project will involve retrofitting the homes of elderly and disabled residents to meet ADA standards. The proposed projects include railings, ramps, and other modifications to houses required for these community members to lead a full life.  And finally, our Fitness Center will work in conjunction with area pediatricians and hospitals to identify children at risk for obesity and develop a center designed to instruct them on physical activities and exercise beneficial to their health.  Additionally, our dietitian will provide meal preparation education geared at leading the entire family toward a healthier lifestyle. 
 
 
The overall goal of LMIF is to reach out into our community in ways that will make life better for its members.  In addition to helping community members in need, we will be ultimately creating jobs for additional local people as our projects grow over time. 
Community helping community is our ultimate goal.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Firewood for Low and Fixed-Income Families

This program has been operational since 2008, providing a low cost heating energy alternative to low and fixed income individuals.  Although our sales and services are increasing at a steady pace, it is imperative to obtain additional funding for the project for acquision of equipment to enable LMIF to increase production as well as to implement additional safety measures.

Population(s) Served

This program has been operational since 2010 on a very small scale.  Funding of this program is essential to increase the number of elderly and/or disabled persons served as well as the frequency of the meals delivered.  Advice of a dietitian is currently being provided on a volunteer basis.  It is our goal to be able to employ a dietitian on a part time basis to enable the development of dietary plans to best service the specific needs of our clientele.

Population(s) Served

The Upgrade of Existing Housing to ADA Standards Program is in the development stage at LMIF.  This program involves identifying newly disabled individuals and assisting them by adapting their homes to overcome the limitations caused by their disability.  These adaptations could come in the form of (but not limited to) railings, ramps, chair-lifts, and/or modifications to doorways, entrances to allow wheelchair access, and re-hab of existing bathrooms.  The recipients would be identified by working in conjunction with local rehabilitation facilities who would specifiy the adaptations needed.

The Fitness Center for Children at Risk for Obesity and their Families is in the development stage at LMIF.  This program involves the creation of a fitness center geared toward teaching children how to make better food choices as well as helping them to learn how to achieve a healthier, more active lifestyle.  The children and their families would be identified by working in conjunction with local pediatricians who would refer and monitor the progress of this select group of children.  The entire family would be incorporated into the program to ensure the lasting success of the child.
