The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Charitable Foundation
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Charitable Foundation’s Give Back a Smile program heals some of the most devastating effects of domestic and sexual violence, by restoring the smiles of adults who have suffered dental injuries from a former intimate partner or spouse, family member or due to sexual assault.
The Smiles For Success Foundation
The Smiles For Success (SFS) Foundation was established in 1995 by members of the American Association of Women Dentists (AAWD). The SFS Foundation was formed to assist women in transition from welfare to work who cannot afford the cost of dental care. Facing a job interview for them may mean self-consciousness, embarrassment and pain as they attempt to hide decayed, missing and damaged teeth. In early 1996 the pilot program was launched in New York City and programs in Boston, Denver, and Philadelphia were developed in 1998.
It's More Than a Cause, It's a Kid
Our three step model provides kids with the essentials they need, free of charge. This enables us to engage communities that have, connecting them with communities that need.
New and nearly new children’s items are collected through grassroots community drives and corporate donations.
Donations are then processed and packaged by volunteers in our warehouse, The Giving Factory.
Packages from The Giving Factory are distributed to local disadvantaged children through our collaborative network of diverse service partners.
Let it Be Us - Inspiring Foster Care Adoptions
Let it Be Us is a nonprofit child welfare agency dedicated to the adoption and education of children within the Illinois foster care system. Funds raised will go to programs and projects that maximize the prospects of successful adoptions for these children and make this world a nicer place for them.
Let it Be Us envisions a future in which our most vulnerable children have the opportunities and resources they need which can best be met by belonging in a family.
Every moment a child waits in foster care, the less likely he or she is to be adopted.
