Project Write2Them

Our mission is improve the morale of new United States servicemembers and military service academy students during the challenging days of basic and advanced training. We want to ensure that every recruit’s name gets called at Mail Call. We do this by making it easy for family, friends and volunteers to provide supportive communications by turning their emails into "letters from home”.

Raleigh Village East

Raleigh Village East exists to provide some services such as rides to doctors, the grocery store, etc. and elder visits and checkins, that will allow seniors in the Oakwood/Mordecai area of Raleigh to live in their homes longer. It is based on the Beacon Hill Village in Boston. We are in the process of established the parameters of our work and our audience.

We are in the process of applying for 501(c)(3) status but need to do more research before applying.

Layers of Dignity, Inc.

We believe that sexual assault survivors deserve, not only clothing for leaving the hospital, but a picture of the hope and redemption that is possible.

Layers of Dignity does this by providing tote bags to emergency rooms and women's advocacy centers. These totes are to be given immediately after the evidence collection. Instead of leaving in paper clothing, sexual assault survivors will take those brave steps in brand-new clothes. They will be armed with resources and aware of the community that stands with them from a love note handwritten by a fellow survivor.
