Project Mend-A-House works with people with disabilities and seniors to help them maintain mobility and independence in their homes through necessary maintenance and repair services. After individuals request repairs, volunteers come by their homes to assess the size of the job. A volunteer plumber or carpenter then conducts the maintenance, which can include building a wheelchair-accessible ramp, installing a grab bar in the shower, repairing a leaky faucet, or reconstructing drywall. Project Mend-A-House also maintains a Loan Closet of items that clients can borrow, such as air-conditioning units, crutches, and portable ramps, to help them run errands or get around their houses more easily.

When she was 32 years old, Maimah Karmo was diagnosed with breast cancer. Though initially devastating, she didn't let the diagnosis slow her down—instead it spurred her to start a movement. Not two sessions into her chemotherapy treatment, Maimah founded the Tigerlily Foundation. The foundation not only educates women and girls about breast cancer, but empowers them to become proactive about their health in any stage, from prevention to remission.
Today, Maimah, who has won a multitude of awards and has appeared in Cosmopolitan and O magazine, has fostered Tigerlily into a national organization with more than 300 volunteers nationwide. It provides health, wellness, and transformational programs to young women in 43 states, and hosts a variety of special events throughout the year, from a Pajama Glam Party to an annual EmPOWER Ball.
The Child and Family Network Centers provides free education and social services for preschool children, and job training for their families. The children it serves are considered at-risk due to limited English proficiency and low-income backgrounds. To fulfill the need for strong educational programs, CFNC operates a year-round preschool in 10 classrooms—with literacy and language support for bilingual children in 27 languages—to prepare them for kindergarten with their peers. These programs reach out to families in their own neighborhoods and supplement the students’ education with additional resources such as health services.
