Jamie spent her entire life volunteering, working with preschool students who had special needs, terminally ill children, and survivors of sexual abuse. Then in 2005, she was diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder (DID). After fruitless searches for support resources, she shifted her focus and humanitarian mindset toward helping people like herself, founding a peer-led support group for DID.

That initial group evolved into An Infinite Mind, an organization dedicated to educating people about dissociative disorders and dispelling the stigmas attached to them. Advocates at An Infinite Mind write articles for journals, work with trauma organizations and public institutions to unearth the realities of living with a dissociative disorder, and speak as both survivors and trained trauma therapists to raise awareness across the country. As part of its expanding efforts to work with trauma survivors on the ground, An Infinite Mind also plans to connect people with therapists and help them find ways to cover the costs of treatment.

At the Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County’s resource center, the Senator Philip D. Lewis Center, more than 360 individuals experiencing homelessness arrived seeking refuge and safety in the first 30 days it was open. Often, these individuals—who may be children, teens, or adults—arrive with everything they own in a garbage bag. Today the coalition hopes to provide each such visitor with a warm welcome that includes a simple, sturdy cloth tote bag or backpack full of the small necessities that may comfort a child or teen, or restore the dignity and self-respect of an adult.

The center—a one-stop resource for housing assistance and provisions for individuals experiencing homelessness—is but a piece of a larger 10-year plan to end homelessness in Palm Beach County. The coalition actively partners with the County and Homeless Advisory Board in pinpointing cracks in current programs and identifying the practical steps necessary to prevent and sustainably end homelessness long term.

Don Campbell loved to cook from an early age. When he was 10 years old, he fed his family and developed his culinary skills. As an adult, Don kept an open table and would feed up to 40 children from the neighborhood at a time. After an earthquake struck Haiti in 2010, he and his wife, Kristen, were inspired to help people recuperate and sustain their lives. Gathering all $9,000 from their life-savings account, the couple partnered with a food-aid organization and founded Feeding Children Everywhere. Just 90 days later, they shipped the first 250,000 meals into Haiti.

Today, Feeding Children Everywhere mobilizes volunteers—from small groups to groups of thousands—who assemble nutritious meals for undernourished children. Since its inception, the organization has delivered more than five million meals around the world and filled the pantries of US public schools through its Love Local program.

In the world of reality TV, it can be hard to separate fact from scripted sensationalism. But with Ghost Tracker Ghost Tours, visitors can see firsthand how the investigators on Ghost Tracker TV gauge the paranormal activity of reputed hauntings, and will even get to help document the spooky goings-on. Using the tools showcased on the screen—including EMF readers and K2 meters—tour-goers track the level of paranormal activity at 5–7 haunted sites, all while listening to their guide recount stories of the old court house or the hanging tree. During their 90 minutes of ghost hunting, guests maintain a leisurely pace while covering less than a mile of ground, allowing them ample time to peer around with cameras for spectral images that can’t be seen with the human eye. Some tours may be filmed for the show, so guests may be asked to sign a waver in order to enjoy their 15 minutes of fame.
