A group of businessmen recently spruced up the Treutlen House at New Ebenezer.

The East Coast managers from Consolidated Asset Management Services painted the boys’ rooms at Treutlen House, a residential facility for boys in the foster-care system.

Kenneth Earl, the manager of the Rincon CAMS location, has been “a great support to the Treutlen House” and wanted to share that with his other managers, according to Treutlen House director Kristen Wert.

“They took time out of their busy week of meetings to come and do this for the boys,” Wert said. “They came right in and got to work painting and within approximately two hours the boys had rooms that better fit their personalities.”

Earl said the project was part of CAMS’ commitment to give back and to make a difference in young people’s lives through education and service.

“Treutlen House makes a significant contribution to the young men they serve and we are extremely happy to contribute our time and resources to make a small improvement to the rooms the boys call home,” he said.

One of Treutlen House’s goals is to replace the boys’ furniture this year with new bunk beds.

“We want the boys to be proud of where they live,” Wert said.
