Access Insurance Agency needs your vote by October 7th to win $10,000 for Bro2Go. Read about their inspiring dedication to helping ex-offenders reclaim their lives and their self-worth.

Restoring confidence, changing lives

People leaving the prison system often struggle to secure a place to live, find a job or access available resources. To support non-violent ex-offenders during this vulnerable transition, Bro2Go offers mentorship, employment programs and other services to help them regain their self-esteem and become successful members of society again. This includes fostering relationships with employers in the greater Harrisburg, PA, area so they can connect ex-offenders with jobs with long-term career potential.

With a mission to empower, equip and motivate formerly incarcerated men and women, the mentors at Bro2Go prepare their mentees for interviews and help them develop marketable skills. The nonprofit further offers temporary assistance with housing costs, utility bills and work clothes to help hold mentees over until they earn their first paycheck.

The organization also provides social services to other under-served populations including veterans, at-risk youth, low-income families and people in recovery looking for another chance.

A second chance to thrive

Bob Ormsbee, co-owner of Access Insurance Agency, holds twin sisters at an April 2022 bowling party sponsored by the agency.

“It’s amazing to watch a person who was once completely down on themselves make a comeback, said LeeAnn Ormsbee, co-owner of Access Insurance Agency. “Watching people grow and succeed at something they never thought possible is so inspiring.”

A web of community support

Bob and LeeAnn Ormsbee, the owners of Access Insurance Agency, began supporting Bro2Go in 2018, a year after the nonprofit was founded. The couple saw the value the organization brought to the community and were inspired to lend their support. They were particularly moved by its work with children.

Along with giving backpacks and supplies to kids who need them each school year, Bro2Go provides a safe place for youth to express their feelings, make friends and have fun. “The people at Bro2Go truly care about others and want to make the world a better place,” said Ormsbee.

The agency supports this mission by sponsoring monthly education and mentoring events that help children grow into healthy and successful adults. The Ormsbees also support two free bowling and pizza parties that Bro2Go organizes each year for kids as a way to show them they are valued and loved.

The power of redemption

Everything Bro2Go does is designed to help people make positive and lasting life changes. “We believe in the power of redemption,” said Bro2Go CEO Da’Laine Simpson. “Remarkable things happen when you give people a second chance and then back it up with training, a caring attitude and community support. It gives hope to those who thought all their opportunities were gone.”
