ALS takes away the freedom to walk, to talk, to run and dance. To laugh. To hug. To eat. To breathe. We fight to give that independence back – and help empower people to live life to the fullest.
We are leading the way in global research and helping 20,000 Americans living with ALS. Your gift today will help find a cure for ALS, while providing care and support to families right here in your community.
We inspire generosity, advocate for equity, forge connections and invest in community to create a better Hawai‘i.
At Compass Family Services, we’re passionate about helping homeless and at-risk families become stably housed, emotionally and physically healthy, and economically self-sufficient. Compass was founded in 1914 as Travelers’ Aid San Francisco to provide assistance to the 18.5 million newcomers who visited the city of San Francisco for the 1915 World’s Fair. Since then, our history has followed the trajectory of San Francisco’s history, serving the most vulnerable populations during the Great Depression, World War II, immigrants and refugees from Asia in the 1950’s, and homeless youth during and after the Summer of Love.
Today, while helping families secure long-term housing, Compass Family Services provides the most comprehensive range of support services designed specifically for those in distress.

Prison Fellowship® works to restore America’s criminal justice system and those it affects. We help men and women replace the cycle of brokenness that landed them in prison. We advocate for justice reform and activate grassroots networks to do the same. We equip wardens to bring restorative change to their facilities. We care for prisoners’ families and help strengthen the bond between children and their parents who are behind bars. We call the Church to lead the way in caring for those impacted by the criminal justice system. And we do it all from a biblical worldview.
Neighbors Together was founded in 1982 by a group of Catholic nuns and local residents who saw that more and more people were unable to make ends meet in their community.
Once strongholds of working and middle class pride, the Ocean Hill, Brownsville, and Bedford- Stuyvesant neighborhoods of Brooklyn have been struck by overwhelming changes in the past few decades. Our community has seen the loss of living wage jobs, increasingly limited access to affordable housing and health care, and a rise in drugs and drug-related violence.
Instead of giving up or waiting for help from outside, our determined founders took action. They pooled their limited resources to create Neighbors Together, named for the philosophy that remains at the very heart of our operations.
On October 25, 1982, Neighbors Together opened its doors as a welcoming soup kitchen and community organization. When Neighbors Together was founded, we were one of less than 50 soup kitchens and food pantries in New York City. Today, there are more than 1,200 serving 1.4 million people a year.
The founders of Neighbors Together believed that the need for emergency food would be temporary and that our work could eventually shift to address other pressing community needs. They had no idea that despite their efforts hunger would increase over the next 30 years.
Throughout the 80’s and 90’s Neighbors Together’s tiny storefront functioned as a community gathering space and place of refuge for people at the bottom of the economic ladder.
In 2006, we packed up the cramped, single room operation where we had spent our first 24 years, and moved up the block to our contemporary cafe-style space—a dramatic upgrade from our first location right around the corner. We knew that our neighbors deserved a beautiful space reflective of their dignity, in which to eat, connect, and nurture their individual and collective strengths.
With more and better space, we have been able to grow our three programs to become more responsive to the needs of our community. We have also been able to deepen our founding philosophy so that those who access our programs are the ones who provide our programs, creating better volunteer structures, organizing opportunities, and participation in governance by our members.
Founded in 2010, Feel Beautiful Today (FBT) exists to help transform oncology patients’ journeys by encouraging their thoughts toward a more positive and healing perspective through creative art experiences. Biviana “Bivi” Franco, FBT’s founder and CEO, experienced firsthand the emotional and physical impact of cancer when two close friends were diagnosed with the disease. Birthed from a desire to humanize the cancer experience for patients, their caregivers, and the medical staff, FBT’s mission fueled the creation of multiple innovative Arts in Health programs. Over the years, FBT has established itself as a partner with cancer patients and medical staff alike with feedback consisting of a 5/5 rating 99% of the time. Because the local and healthcare community recognize the benefits of treating the whole patient: body, mind, and spirit, FBT has been able to serve over 11,000 patients in 13 cancer centers and hospitals in metro Atlanta.
With art still the vehicle and hope still the purpose, FBT now looks forward to transitioning to a more digital presence in hospitals as Covid-19 transforms the way we do life. Several of the 10 existing programs are finding new life on an online platform as FBT seeks to continue being present in the healthcare industry and cancer patients’ lives. FBT is constantly seeking to grow in excellence and relies on innovation fueled by compassion to continue bringing essential Arts in Health programs to those affected by cancer.
