Initially created to rescue mares and foals that were discarded by the drug industry, Dreamchaser Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation now works to save horses and other farm animals from starvation, abuse, abandonment, and slaughter. Volunteers work to gentle and train the horses, many of which come to the ranch wild, until they're comfortable enough to join the herd. On average, a rescued horse spends roughly one year at the ranch. The ultimate goal is to place every animal into a loving, permanent home through the ranch’s adoption program. The organization also works to educate the public about the inhumane treatment of animals and provides enrichment programs for local foster children.
West Valley Child Crisis Center (WVCCC) rose from the need for shelter housing. A group of women's service organizations and the John F. Long Foundation formed opened residential homes in 1986 and 1988 for children who were victims of domestic violence or neglect. Today WVCCC helps to find foster care and adoptive homes for children who were removed from their homes by Child Protective Services. In addition, the organization's birth-parent program teaches pregnant women about their options and ability to place their children with loving families, and the community-outreach program raises awareness about child-welfare issues.
Nestled within 18,500 square feet and designed by award-winning architect Will Bruder, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art's quintet of galleries—formerly a cineplex's five theaters—have hosted changing and permanent exhibitions of art, architecture, and design since 1999. The outdoor sculpture garden features acclaimed pieces such as James Turrell's experiential Knight Rise skyspace and James Carpenter Design Associates' Scrim Wall. After viewing the art outside, visitors can return indoors to explore furnishings and jewelry in the shop or examine work by local youth in the young@art gallery. The museum's Visions Teen Program continues to nurture burgeoning talent, pairing teenagers with visual-art teachers and visiting artists. Adults can also enrich their artistic know-how at lectures and workshops until they are able to draw a perfect circle with a pencil still tucked behind their ear. The museum's lounge fosters artistic communities through events ranging from screenings of international art movies to art-making sessions.

In life and at C3 Kitchen, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. From 7 a.m. onwards, staff begin cooking up healthy dishes to start the day. They put together plates of bagels with cream cheese, lox, and veggies, and layer egg sandwiches with a choice of meat on a buttermilk roll. As for drinks, they don't just pour coffee. Instead, they offer multiple brewing styles and coffee drinks, from french press to chemex to espresso. After the breakfast rush, chefs switch over to hot and cold sandwiches and salads that follow traditional comfort-food recipes such as the roast beef and coleslaw, as well as healthy alternatives such as lemon-dijon salads and veggie wraps.
