Twelve KCY, EKC, and TOP employees teamed up to help at the Rose Brooks Center. It is a domestic violence shelter that helps people dealing with domestic abuse. They provide emergency shelter to escape life-threatening abuse for adult women, children, and pets in the community who need support and resources.

PARADISE FARM CAMPS - This registered 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization began in 1875. It is also known as The Children's Country Week Association. Their mission is to connect children with the outdoors by providing day camp, school study programs and overnight camp to children who otherwise would not be able to afford such an experience.
