Nemours is committed to improving the health of children. As a nonprofit children’s health organization, they consider the health of every child to be a sacred trust.

About Attack Addiction

Attack Addiction is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group created in memory of Tyler Armstrong Keister after his accidental overdose. Our goal is to help young people realize the dangers of alcohol and drugs so that they and their families never have to experience the pain, tragedy and loneliness that accompany addiction.

The main purpose of the group is to educate and bring awareness of addiction as a disease, rather than the stigma that is suffered in shame by the person with the disease and their loved ones.

About Autism Delaware

In 1998, a group of Delaware parents got together to share their common experience of autism. They began by supporting each other, sharing information, and creating a vision for a better future for all who are affected by autism in our state. Over the last 20 years, Autism Delaware has grown into an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit made up of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), their family members, the professionals who serve them, and friends of people with ASD. With offices in Newark, Dover, and Lewes, Autism Delaware serves the entire state.

Autism Delaware’s programs and services are supported by state contracts and donations from individuals and corporations across Delaware. Fundraising events, such as the statewide Walk for Autism, help provide the income needed to make critical programs a reality.

About Read Aloud Delaware

Read Aloud Delaware’s mission is to ensure that each preschool child in Delaware is regularly read to one-on-one. All children in Delaware need to be ready to learn to read when they enter kindergarten. With your help, we can make that happen.

Today’s USO continuously adapts to the needs of our men and women in uniform and their families, so they can focus on their very important mission. We operate USO centers at or near military installations across the United States and throughout the world, including in combat zones, and even un-staffed USO service sites in places too dangerous for anyone but combat troops to occupy.
