Welcome To Our Community

"We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right."       -Nelson Mandela-

We are a small non-profit from Richland County working in Richland County to make our home a better place. The Mary McLeod Bethune Intervention and Enrichment Center [MBIE] has served the underprivileged of Richland County since it received its 501c3 in 1995. Over the years, the MBIE has partnered with various organizations to deliver services that benefit a wide spectrum of clientele including: senior citizens, veterans, and low to moderate income families.

Area residents who don't have dependable transportation can use MBIE's New Freedom transportion services to make it to evening and weekend appoointments, shopping trips, family visits, and other destinations. Service is available after hours and on weekends  

when regular public transportation isn't available. By calling MBIE in advance, you can travel for less than the cost in a taxicab!   Click here for more information.
