Our Partners


The impact of corporate partners in our community is immense. Because of area businesses, local children have received over 15,000 books to read at home, 88,832 struggling families had a safe place to sleep and 177,144 people received health screenings. Every year more corporate partners join in to make a bigger difference. If your company is looking for a way to engage employees and help create a brighter future for children, families and veterans who call the 757 home, please contact us today.
