The Soldiers Project
The Soldiers Project is a 501(c)(3) organization helping service members face the challenges of returning home from combat – providing free, individualized psychological treatment to those men and women who have served in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts (as well as their support systems: spouses, parents, children, grandparents, boyfriends, girlfriends, friends, and colleagues). Because when a soldier goes to war, their loved ones go to war with them.
The mental health professionals at The Soldiers Project understand the far-reaching consequences of war-related experiences and the toll that the cycle of pre-deployment to deployment and then to homecoming can take. They provide the support that is needed to help smooth the transition back to family and civilian life.

Simi Rotary Sunrise
This 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.
