Charis Kirk and Jackie Zimmerman—two young women with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)—met online after they started chronicling their fight with IBD. They have had 15 surgeries combined and fought through the highs and lows of recovery. Throughout their journeys, the duo supported each other and was inspired to encourage other girls and young women with IBD to be confident and proud, regardless of what's happening with their disease. The Girls With Guts website serves as an online community where women can share their stories about explaining the disease to friends or being pregnant with an ostomy bag, among others.

Within a private, boutique-style gym exuding a familial vibe, Bodymorph Gym takes its clients back to workout basics. The personal trainers on staff prize simplicity over an abundance of doodads and gimmicks, exclusively leading private sessions and small group boot-camp classes. The elasticity of the programs, however, stretches to accommodate each participant's various goals, from weight loss to enhanced athleticism to improved posture to healing.
During indoor classes, trainers eschew the all the shouting and court-martialing of traditional boot camps. They help sculpt physiques with modern equipment—such as strength machines, stability balls, and free weights—from the cozy confines of a homey studio. Diet plans can supplement exercises on the side, and music and a disco ball lend a festive atmosphere to workouts.
South Oakland Shelter partners with more than 60 area religious institutions to provide housing opportunities for displaced people. Its guests receive a place to sleep at the partner congregation, warm meals, and opportunities to plan housing situations with case managers. The shelter also organizes targeted homelessness-prevention efforts including direct financial assistance, career-development and financial-literacy workshops, and support groups. Because of its work with more than 8,000 volunteers annually—who interact with guests and arrange sleeping spaces—SOS was named Outstanding Volunteer Program by the Michigan Governor’s Service Awards in 2009.
