Amber Ferry lives with her three beautiful children, Isabel
(7 years), Grace (3 years), and Simon (4 months) in Mason City. She works in Mason City at Charlie Brown Preschool and Childcare, where her two younger children are enrolled.
Her oldest daughter, Isabel or “Izzy”, has a birth defect
known as Spina Bifida, which has left her partially paralyzed
from the waist down. Despite being wheelchair bound,
Isabel is a spirited girl with a big heart and a great sense of
humor. She attends 2nd grade at Roosevelt Elementary
School, and is very popular and well-loved among her
fellow classmates and the school staff due to her
bright personality. Grace is Amber’s youngest
daughter and is filled to the brim with energy and curiosity. She keeps them all busy and on their toes!
“The kids and I feel blessed to be given this opportunity to
build new friendships and a new home,
especially for Izzy...,“ said Amber.
Their new home was primarily sponsored by Larson
Manufacturing, with additional financial support from the
North Iowa Area Council of Governments. It was built in
Mason City thanks to volunteers, supporting businesses, and
the NIACC Building Trades Class. It was constructed with
handicap- accessible features so that Izzy can enjoy more freedom and independence as she grows up.
