Adoption Rocks is a local non-profit organization that provides adoption help, information and adoption resources for women facing an unplanned pregnancy and couples seeking adoption. Every year, the number of infant adoptions decrease, while the number of children placed outside of the home increase. This is especially true of children being placed in the legal custody of the Department of Human Resources. This trend could end if more people became involved in educating young, unmarried, and unstable birth-mothers about the option of adoption. And that's where Adoption Rocks comes in. Their mission to educate the community about the process of adoption has never been more important.
Dance Without Limits (DWL) is a local non-profit improving the lives of special needs individuals through the power of dance! Any kid. Any adult. Any disability. In a DWL class, wheelchairs are forgotten, social skills and confidence are enhanced and no speech is required. Dance is truly an art form that EVERYONE can participate in! DWL was founded by Mission member, Kerrie Benson after seeing the love her special needs son had for music and movement.
