Soroptimist Against Violent Environments (SAVE)

The SAVE vision is "a world without violence," and their mission is to eliminate the gap between need and available services for victims of domestic violence and change the social climate that allows domestic violence to continue in our cmmunity. SAVE provides assistance and support to facilities that give shelter to victims of domestic violence.

Reaching Out One At A Time (ROOT Program)

The ROOT mentoring program was created to mentor and assist high school graduates experiencing difficulties continuing their educational pursuits. Soroptimists work closely with counselors who know the young people and their potential. Team members call the student frequently, asking about progress and problems. Students are invited to club luncheons, or casual lunches on campus. Members sometimes visit students at their job sites, or take them to events. The Soroptimists budget includes expenses for bus passes, school books, lab fees and other expenses the students may incur.

Campships

Each year funds are given to agencies such as the American Cancer Society and the Diabetes Association providing camps for children with challenges.
