International Rett Syndrome Foundation works to accelerate full spectrum research for curing and treating Rett syndrome, a postnatal neurological disorder that affects thousands of girls worldwide. It empowers families with knowledge, resources, and connectivity. We hold this organization dear because of the impact the disease has on our family.
Children's Home Society of Florida exists to protect and heal children, build and strengthen families, and rescue and embrace teens struggling to survive on their own. It does this by providing security in emergency shelters, group homes, and foster families. CHSF is a core partner with the Evans Community School.
Equality Florida seeks to change our state so that no one suffers harassment or discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity. It does this through education, grassroots organizing, coalition building, and lobbying. Even though the fight for marriage equality has been won, the fight for full equality for the LGBT community is not over.
