We are a non-profit organization dedicated to bring awareness to and fighting against animal abuse and violence, and eventually the dog and cat meat trade in Asia. There are millions of dogs and cats brutally tortured everyday to this horrific(and in some places illegal) trade. We not only fight for the dogs and cats in Asia, but for the ones local and worldwide as well. Puppy mills and bestiality are just a couple examples of what we are also fighting to end. We also would like to provide aide to homeless pets and their owners. There are so many homeless dogs on the streets that suffer and struggle right alongside their human companions.These innocent victims are unable to speak for themselves, therefore WE are their voices. We have so much hope for the future of these beautiful and loyal animals. If we all care enough about these innocent and beautiful animals, and work together then all of our voices together can make a huge difference.. We are determined to fight for these animals as well as all others that also need fighting for. We will NOT give up on them… no matter what it takes. Join us in this battle against the TRUE animals and evil in this world and help bring justice to the innocent ones that deserve it. Help us make people aware of the horror that goes on over there. It’s time to take a stand and SPEAK FOR THE VOICELESS.
Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous is an international fellowship of people who have experienced difficulties in life as a result of our relationship to food and eating. We joined FA because we were obsessed with food.

CBI’s flag ship program is our Youth Business and Mobile Application Development (YBMAD) is our ongoing youth program. This training is target to our youth between the ages of 8 – 26. Statics and quantifiable research show that if we can impact a child’s life early enough we can change the outcomes of their lives. The most important thing we can do to change and improve our communities is to create better community members and it starts with our youth. This program is designed to introduce Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.) to under-served youth. Our Mobile app development programs teach them basic application development then they proceed to the next level of programming. Then we take them through our business training program, then show them how to monetize or sell the apps they create. But most of all we use the medium of coding or game development as a tool to engage them so we can teach them personal development and a skill that will change their lives.

As a non-profit artistic organization dependent on ticket sales and private donations for financial support, The Festival Singers subscribes to the following resolution passed by ADCA, the American Choral Directors Association:
“Whereas the human spirit is elevated to a broader understanding of itself through study and performance in the aesthetic arts; and Whereas serious cutbacks in funding and support have steadily eroded state institutions and their programs throughout the country; Be it resolved that all citizens of the United States actively voice their affirmation and collective support for necessary funding at the local, state, and national levels of education and government to ensure the survival of arts programs for this and future generations.”

We promote economic opportunity via our English as a second language (ESL) classes, vocational trainings such as Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and family childcare home licensing, and driver’s education courses. In addition to these programs, we pride ourselves on fulfilling our position as Live Well San Diego partners by simply trying to ensure the health and welfare of our clients and the surrounding San Diego community. We provide education on Type 2 diabetes and healthy eating via our Type 2, Not You! program, as well as assistance in applying for Covered California health care. It is an advocacy program that goes beyond words. We hold workshops that have interactive cooking lessons with our constituents using ingredients we purchase from local groceries that they can afford. We want these educational workshops to be practical to their lifestyle so we can make it a lifestyle choice, and not a temporary phase. We want the demonstrations to be linguistically competent, and the recipes to be culturally appropriate to their respective diets.
