Project C.U.R.E & CBR
One of our most treasured community service activities has been working together as a team at the Project C.U.R.E. warehouse. Employees chose to serve on their own time too, by helping to package unused medical supplies discarded by American hospitals and medical facilities for shipment to countries in need. What is otherwise disposable to Americans can save lives in other countries. CBR is proud to be a part of this life-saving effort. If you would like to get involved, visit their website at www.projectcure.org. Learn more about Project C.U.R.E. on their website https://projectcure.org, on Twitter @projectcure and on Facebook.
Phoenix Rescue Mission
Having been involved with the Phoenix Rescue Mission in the past, nothing excites us more than being able to participate in the organization’s annual “Fill-A-Box, Feed-A-Family” food drive. The program provides food to needy families during the holidays and not only does our staff donate time, money, and food supplies, but many of CBR’s valued clients contribute food items as well. We donate more than 1,000 pounds annually to the Phoenix Rescue Mission and the Valley families it helps during the holidays. During these tough economic times we know that our hard work will pay off when hundreds of families get fed each Thanksgiving. Learn more about Phoenix Rescue Mission on their website https://phoenixrescuemission.org on Twitter @phxmission and on Facebook.
Special Olympics Arizona
For people with intellectual disabilities, Special Olympics is often the only place where they have an opportunity to participate in their communities and develop belief in themselves. For athletes, Special Olympics sports provide a gateway to empowerment, competence, acceptance and joy. The lessons learned in Special Olympics also impact life skills. Sports training enhances focus and gives participants a structure for learning important lessons about perseverance, endurance and setting goals. Many people are surprised to know that more than half of adult Special Olympics athletes in the United States are employed, versus 10 percent of disabled persons who do not participate in the Special Olympics program.

- Emergency relief that assists people afflicted by conflict or disaster.
- Promotion of justice that seeks to change unjust structures affecting the poor among whom we work.

- Witness to Jesus Christ by life, deed, word, and sign that encourages people to respond to the Gospel.
The challenges kids and families face today are complex and have the potential to devastate lives and derail futures. It is extremely important to work together to protect the children in our community. The average age at which a child will first try drugs is thirteen. However, studies have shown that people who reach 21 without engaging in destructive behaviors are likely to never do so, which is why we passionately educate about current trends, warning signs, and the long-term impact of destructive behaviors. We believe proactive prevention on the part of kids, families, and communities is the answer to long-term success. https://notmykid.org.
Each Assistance League chapter exists to serve the unique needs and challenges of their respective community. Funds serve local needs, and services are locally designed, organized and carried out to fit these needs. The national organization supports, trains and monitors chapters to assure that they adhere to the best standards of nonprofit governance. Assistance League is 120 chapters united in purpose and dedicated to making local lives better.
New Generations—the name says it all. Our passion is to mobilize disciples that make disciples, resulting in churches that plant churches. Like Jesus’ parable of the seed that fell on good soil, each individual seed has the power to create countless future generations of new seeds.
Our ministry compass points to the pioneer places, where the gospel has never been or has never flourished. Among these unengaged and unreached peoples, our mission is simple: ‘We work with God to launch Disciple Making Movements’
MentorKids USA empowers youth in under-served communities in the Phoenix area to reach their full potential.
Some of the best natural entrepreneurs in the United States are in underserved urban communities. They are called hustlers – visionary risk-takers who seize the opportunity to move product and turn a profit. They have the skills, attributes, and talents of an entrepreneur, but they lack the key resources needed to create sustainable businesses that benefit the broader community. At Hustle PHX, we want to let the hustlers hustle – for the common good.

New City Church
The leaders at New City are committed to intersecting the message of Christ with the people of Phoenix, and living their passions in meaningful ways beyond their work at the church. From college professor to professional drummer, and mountain tamer to foster parent—our team believes in serving Jesus in all of life.
New City exists to make disciples who take the message of Jesus to the places they live, work, study, and play. We do this so our homes, neighborhoods and city might flourish.
The Red Cross
Red Cross volunteers and staff work to deliver vital services – from providing relief and support to those in crisis, to helping you be prepared to respond in emergencies.

Many adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other neuro-diverse conditions face unique challenges in daily living: That’s why it’s critically important to design housing that nurtures a spirit of community, independence and interdependence within a supportive and caring environment. It’s also why we’re focused on providing the tools to help residents develop a lifestyle that’s meaningful, productive, connected and fulfilling.
Living in a place shouldn’t condemn a person to poor health, weak education, unsafe living conditions or segregation from other races, socio-economic classes and religions. However, in cities around the world urban youth face countless barriers to successful lives. Experience and research show that when these same young people are engaged in substantive activities focused on changing the world, they become empowered, wise and transformative leaders. Urban Youth can help transform the lives of younger people, their peers, adults and elders living among them throughout their cities.
