Impacting the Community, One Home at a Time

23 / August / 2017

Alabama Rural Ministry (ARM) was founded in 1998 to serve residents in Western Alabama on limited and fixed incomes who were unable to pay for needed home improvements like roof repairs and floor replacements. Through Service Days and week-long day camps, the organization improves the standard of living for individuals and families in the area.

Morgan Bell, an Engineering Intern in Columbus, Georgia, has been involved with ARM for several years as a volunteer. “I saw it as a good opportunity to get others involved in service,” he said. As a leader of a high school discipleship group at his church, Bell wanted to show the young men he was leading that there are tangible things that can be done to make a difference in someone’s life. “We go beyond fixing their homes, trying to impact their lives personally as well, loving those who may not have as much as others.”

Bell sees a clear correlation between his work at Barge Design Solutions and his involvement with ARM. He explains, “At Barge Design Solutions, we understand that the work that we do makes a difference in peoples’ lives too. It’s not just about winning projects and paying the bills, it’s about using our skills and talents to the betterment of others.”
