The grant impacted the community at Santa Maria Bonita House (hostel for mothers recovering from chemical dependencies with children). The grant enabled Adam Brick Guy to bring kids, mothers and volunteers together, provide opportunities for mothers to encourage their kids toward healthy ends, and bring the facility together through the City Themed Great Build Day.
Everyone there saw mothers playing with their kids, laughing at their behaviors, and encouraging them. We saw administrators and supervisors playing with the moms and kids. Adam Brick Guy saw this as an event that everyone was able to say yes to and build rapport with one another.
Further, it brought professional and careered people from other parts of the community together with these kids and mothers. The mothers were very encouraged to see how supportive these other members of the community were toward their kids Lego building. Everyone, especially the mothers, got a taste of something fun that is healthy.
With this grant, Adam Brick Guy was not only able to host that City Build, but has now enough Lego to host that again at other places in the community.
