Brandi’s Story

A Message from the Founder

The Brandi Nichole Family Enrichment Center is dedicated to the memory of my daughter, Brandi Nichole.  Brandi grew up in a home with foster children and acted as a mentor, and a mother. A life-long battle with juvenile diabetes prevented her from seeing her 27th birthday. In her short life she touched an entire community of people.

Brandi was a strong, vibrant woman of faith and an advocate for children and families. She faced many struggles and obstacles, not always making the best choices but always moving forward.  We use her strength to honor families and life.

Brandi Nichole Family Enrichment Center not only honors the memory of my daughter, but honors families who have members with mental and /or medical illnesses and are fighting not to be defined by a diagnosis or a disease. We also honor families who have lost loved ones and acknowledge their pain. We want to assist you and your family in being healthy, happy and whole.
