Delta Dogs is a non-profit, community supported organization that helps provide healthcare to the pets of people in need in the Mobile, Alabama area. Many people live on the streets, are down on their luck, out of work, and struggling along with their beloved pets. Delta Dogs provides the basic care for their pets – spay and neuter, food, flea and tick treatment, heart worm preventatives, basic medical support and tests. They provide this care with licensed Veterinarians in a clinical setting, so our community in need can continue to love their pets and feel comfortable that their needs are met, too. Their clients include Veterans, families in crisis, people who have lost their jobs, the homeless, and the elderly.
Approximately 600 individuals are homeless every night in Mobile County. Family Promise of Coastal Alabama partners with congregations and civic groups to offer children and their families a safe place to sleep and hope. Their mission is to provide temporary shelter, related services and nurturing support to families as they work to achieve and sustain independence. When a family who can barely afford rent suffers a set back - a car breaks down, someone gets sick or someone loses their job - they could end up with no home at all. Family Promise was created because they believe every family deserves a home and every community can make that happen.

The Krewe of Kindness was formed in 2018 by the Zimlich family in Mobile, Alabama. Their daughter, Delaney, was born with Spina Bifida in 2006. At the time of this surprise diagnosis, thoughts of fear, isolation, and the unknown were ever present. They began to reach out to others in the community and found ways to adapt to this new life and wanted to find ways to give back and help others who needed a bit of kindness in their own lives. The mission of Krewe of Kindness is to provide assistance and support to families with special, non-medical needs to enable them to lead healthy and active lifestyles while emphasizing the importance of inclusion and acceptance within the community.
