We are a non-profit organization. All officers and executive committee members at the local and conference level work on a volunteer basis to defend those who cannot defend themselves.

    Our work does not end there.  Each year we plan a series of community outreach and fundraising events.  We are successful because our members participate and we receive support from the greater community.

     However, it takes more than a great plan; it takes great people to see that plan through.
