Organizations include:

- Horizons for Youth - Horizons for Youth is a community committed to helping children successfully graduate high school, continue onto college and ultimately reach their full potential.
- Global Alliance for Africa - Global Alliance for Africa transforms the lives of orphans and vulnerable children affected by the AIDS pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa by partnering with grassroots organizations to design and implement innovative economic development programs that enable families and communities to become self-sufficient.
- Career Transitions Center - Career Transitions Center provides professional, emotional, and spiritual support to those seeking a job, looking for meaningful work, or otherwise going through a career transition. Their mission is to provide support to underemployed and unemployed persons who otherwise could not afford comprehensive job placement services.
