Our organization was founded on the idea of simply helping those that others have forgotten or have written off. Ever since our organization was established, we have endeavored to provide help where help is needed most.
Our team is made up entirely of volunteers who advocate for those who need our help. We have discovered that a little help goes a long way. This is why we are especially happy when we find new volunteers who share our commitment to doing good in the world.
