Ewes News celebrates our residents and our employees. In each issue, we feature a resident and an employee in Eye on Ewe. You’ll also read about upcoming events, recaps of recent activities, and stories about the Lamb family in each issue.
Holiday 2008 Newsletter
Lamb Foundation Director Donna Mengel’s family is growing alongside the Lamb Foundation. Donna and her husband Dan with the youngest members of their family: from left, Bruin, 12, Joseph, 7, Maude, 12, Blue, 10.
The Lamb Foundation grew past the 200-resident milestone in 2008, making us the largest provider of housing for adults with developmental disabilities in Montgomery County. The sheer number of people we support and our costs boggle our mind and our budget. To accommodate our dramatic growth, we’ve moved our Sweet Repeats Thrift Shop, leveraged our main street location, opened the Cornucopia Cupboard, and launched the “Ewe Work” Training Program.
Summer 2007 Newsletter
A great deal of work goes into turning a house into a Lamb home. Recently, the Lamb Foundation completed the second phase of renovations on the historic News Agency building in North Wales. Four additional suites were added, for a total of seven apartments. Now, another 21 individuals may soon have a home at Lamb. How does Lamb make a house, or a building, a home?
