Making a Difference by Supporting Individuals and Communities

SCRAM Systems Veterans Program

In 2009, SCRAM Systems launched the SCRAM Systems Veterans Program as a corporate initiative dedicated to helping those who sacrifice so much for our country: U.S. Military Veterans and their families. In addition to corporate support for select Veterans organizations and involvement in organizations that help veterans find employment, SCRAM Systems is lending a helping hand to Veterans in our own backyard—the criminal justice system—by partnering with Veterans Treatment Courts.

Fisher House Foundation

Fisher House Foundation is a nonprofit that provides “home away from home” housing for military families so that they can be close to loved ones during hospitalization for illness, disease, or combat injury. Founded in 1990, with the first house in Bethesda, Maryland, Fisher House now has 62 houses in operation across the U.S. and has served 19,000 families since 2012. In addition, the foundation funds:

  • Hero Miles™, donated frequent flyer miles to bring family members to the bedside of injured service members.
  • Hotels for Heroes, providing free hotel rooms to families of service members undergoing treatment at authorized medical centers. Hotel rooms are made possible through the donation of hotel rewards points.
  • Scholarships for Military Children, Heroes’ Legacy Scholarships for the children of fallen and disabled service members, and the National Military Family Association’s Military Spouse Scholarships.

In 2013, as part of our SCRAM Systems Helping Veterans at Home program, AMS pledged our support to the Fisher House Foundation, including staff volunteer efforts at both the Denver- and Washington, D.C.-area facilities.

DenverWorks

As part of our annual SCRAM Systems Holiday Giving Program, SCRAM Systems employees support DenverWorks, a nonprofit that helps low-income job seekers who have barriers to employment. These barriers may include a criminal background, substance abuse, dependency on government assistance, a disability, lack of childcare, or other issues. Probation officers and social workers often send their clients to DenverWorks for assistance as they try to find employment. SCRAM Systems staff holds an annual drive for professional clothing that participants can use as part of their job seeking efforts.

Colorado Chapter MADD

SCRAM Systems and our team, the “SCRAMblers,” have been involved with the local chapter of MADD since 2007. Each year our team commits donations and volunteers for the Walk Like MADD fund-raiser.

In December 2012, AMS again partnered with our local chapter as part of our SCRAM Systems Holiday Giving Program. MADD Colorado connected AMS with four local families whose lives have been dramatically impacted as victims of impaired driving. Each family shared their story with AMS, along with their family wish list for the holiday. Each department in our company was assigned a family member, and we worked to fulfill the needs and wishes of these families.

Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day

Each year SCRAM Systems partners with Alive at 25 a nationwide nonprofit that works with local law enforcement groups to educate teens about the dangers of drunk driving. Our staff organizes a comprehensive day-long educational program for members of the SCRAM Systems family.

Alcohol Abuse: The Biggest Addiction Problem In New Hampshire

America is currently in the grip of an addiction crisis—the opioid epidemic. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIH), over 64,000 people died from drug overdoses in 2016, more than the number of Americans killed during the entirety of the Vietnam War. While the devastating effects of opioid addiction have been well-publicized in recent years, many states continue to designate alcohol abuse as their priority.
