Music for Autism provides an autistic-friendly environment for children to come together and share an appreciation of music. Music brings people together. It can lift the spirit. Music affects mood and environment.
According to Humana music therapy can be used to improve overall physical rehabilitation, facilitate movement, increase motivation to engage in treatment, offer emotional support for the person and their family and provide an outlet to express feelings.
Music therapy benefits those with mental health needs, development and learning disabilities, people with Alzheimer’s disease, brain injuries, physical disabilities, and acute or chronic pain sufferers. It is the use of music by a qualified music therapist to address a person’s physical, emotional, cognitive or social needs.
This is just one of the many ways we can be involved in helping those with Autism.
DeliverFund is a nonprofit organization founded and staffed by former elite intelligence operators from the CIA, NSA, FBI, Delta Force and Navy SEALs who bring their experience in counterterrorism to bear on the human trafficking industry.
They make the business of human trafficking risky for the trafficker by equipping, training and advising law enforcement so they can bring traffickers to justice.
Arresting human traffickers is the ultimate form of prevention, and starts the path to healing for the victims.
The only people who can arrest human traffickers are law enforcement officers–so that is who they serve.
The Honor Foundation (THF) is a unique transition institute created exclusively for Navy SEALs and the U.S. Special Operations community. They provide a clear process for professional development and a diverse ecosystem of world class support and technology. Every step is dedicated to preparing these outstanding men and women to continue to realize their maximum potential during and after their service career.
WHY U.S. SPECIAL OPERATORS?
Often underutilized in the private sector of business and entrepreneurship, their programs allow industry to effectively deploy this incredible talent pool.
Since their founding in 2014, THF has built and designed a “network of networks” — a collection of names and faces in various industries and positions. Their network is a strong, carefully chosen group of executives, coaches, consultants, entrepreneurs and professors, who are truly vested in their Alumni’s future success. Every person involved with their ecosystem is standing by to produce levels of excellence. In addition to these individuals, Alumni will have access to all Alumni and THF connections — for life. Their Mission is infinite and THF will continue to serve those who have served.
Ever wondered what Navy SEALs, fighter pilots and other elite veterans do once they leave the military?
They go job hunting, just like everybody else looking for a new career. Except special operators and fighter pilots have spent on average 10 or more prime income earning years out of today’s offices and businesses and inside of combat units that demand all of their time, leaving no room for post-military career exploration until their separation is upon them; finding their place in the civilian world can be as big a challenge as anything they have faced in training or in combat.
Elite Meet was founded in 2017 to connect these elite veterans with high quality employment opportunities. (Source: elitemeet.us)

Minnie’s Food Pantry was founded by Dr. Cheryl “Action” Jackson to honor her mother, the late Minnie Hawthorne-Ewing D.D. on April 1, 2008. With a mission to provide healthy meals and resources by way of red carpet treatment to those in need, Minnie’s Food Pantry has since distributed over six million meals to families experiencing food-insecurity.
Minnie’s Food Pantry receives no government support and is 100% community funded. Long term underemployment, unemployment and the high cost of food, gas, utilities and rent are forcing more and more people to seek emergency food. According to Forbes, the cost of living is on the rise (3% increase compared to 2016) and government assistance is on the decline. The need for emergency food is unprecedented.
The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a top-ranked nonprofit relief organization, providing access to more than 190,000 meals each day for hungry children, seniors and families across a 13-county service area.
In the last fiscal year, NTFB and their feeding network provided access to almost 72 million meals.
The need for hunger relief in North Texas is much larger; to combat increasing food insecurity in North Texas, the Food Bank recently launched a 10-year plan to provide access to 92 million nutritious meals annually by 2025.
NTFB is a member of Feeding America, a national hunger relief organization.
