A Nonprofit Community Enterprise
In 1991 in Burlington, Vermont, ReCycle North began an innovative program of repairing and reselling household items that otherwise would have gone to the dump. Out of that founding vision, more than 750 people have received job training and skills essential to gainful employment, 10,000 low-income people have received needed household goods and building materials, more than 10,000 tons of materials have been kept from the landfill, and 50 people now have secure employment through income earned largely from this social enterprise. ReCycle North changed it's name to ReSOURCE in 2009 and continues to meet community and individual needs through education and job skills training, environmental stewardship, and economic opportunities.

We remain committed to helping children heal.
Our mission statement, educating to end the cycle of domestic violence and save lives, speaks to our commitment and focus to help children that are victims and witnesses of domestic violence to navigate a difficult path. In the late 1990's, Joe and Ali Torre attended a life-changing seminar that proved to be a turning point for Joe, prompting him to begin speaking openly about his childhood experience with domestic violence. Growing more aware that millions of children live with violence in their homes, Joe and Ali were moved to act. As they gained the understanding and knowledge that too many of our children are afraid, unaware of how to ask for help, and suffer the same debilitating fear that he and his family had, Joe and Ali founded the Safe At Home Foundation in 2002, and since then we have reached over 60,000 youth, with 13 sites that are located in New York, California, and New Jersey.

Providing individualized family care for the most vulnerable children of South Africa, since 1998.
Our mission is to offer unconditional love, dignity, and FAMILY to children orphaned in South Africa. We seek to solve the complex problems experienced by infants and children without families. The value of treating each child as we would our own is at the core of our work. Forever Family Homes offer children, who were orphaned, families in individual homes, run by loving and committed full-time house parents and staff. Our work has resulted in the rescue of over 500 children who either reside in our Forever Family Homes, have been adopted into legal and permanent families, or reunified with family. The word "orphan" no longer applies, because our children now belong in a long-term, stable, de facto family. While past experiences, trauma, neglect, and abuse will be a part of their story forever, their pasts do not define or limit who they can become. Our desire is to empower them to experience hope and a bright future.

Turning Hardship Into Hope.
LEAVEN was created in 1986 and opened its doors on January 1, 1987. The founders were local clergy, businesspeople, and community leaders. They were concerned about low income people not having emergency access to the basic necessities of life, not knowing where to turn for help, and the number of individuals who were going from place to place (particularly to churches) seeking assistance. Duplications of effort, and the real possibility of a few taking advantage of the charity of others, were also of great concern. The agency began with a tiny budget, a few volunteers, and a very part-time staff person. Since 1987, the agency has grown in budget, staff, and number of volunteers. There are currently over 200 volunteers that donate over 17,000 hours each year. This is equivalent to 8.3 full time employees and 67% of all hours worked. It has grown tremendously in its capacity for effective administration, raising money, growing endowments, and caring for the less fortunate in the Fox Valley Area.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Phoenix is a welcoming "home away from home" for families with children facing medical challenges, providing an atmosphere of comfort, hope and courage. The families who benefit from RMHC travel far from home to receive treatment for their child at world-renowned pediatric centers located in Phoenix.

It's a long time to be away from home or to divide a family, and often times commuting or staying at a hotel is either impossible or financially challenging for a family. RMHC is able to help families overcome these obstacles by providing low-cost, temporary housing that is near their child's hospital.
