Access Partnership5-stars

Volunteers with Coastal Prosthetics and Orthotics Access Partnership

“Access Partnership truly meets the needs of our communities, not only in the Hampton Roads area, but also globally, assisting Third World countries. We have helped typhoon victims and the nuns in nursing homes in the Philippines. Donations of healthcare equipment, suture kits, incontinence and diabetes supplies have gone a long way with the care of the underserved people. They truly are providing a much needed service to all.” –Teresa Ignacio G.

Prostate Cancer International4 stars

“Virtually every day, the ‘New’ Prostate Cancer Infolink, sponsored by Prostate Cancer International, posts between one and three articles about prostate cancer. The articles are extraordinarily informative, trustworthy, and well written. The website is a must for any person who is concerned about prostate cancer, whether the person is a patient, family or friend of a patient, a potential patient, or a healthcare provider.” –BenCasey653

Virginia Beach Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (VBSPCA)5-stars

dog for adoption Virginia Beach Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (VBSPCA)“VBSPCA does a phenomenal job of finding permanent homes for thousands of animals each year. It is so effective that it routinely takes in transfers from other shelters that are overwhelmed and finds homes for them as well. VBSPCA has taken in animals from Puerto Rico, New Orleans, and the Far East.

VBSPCA provides services for pet owners who cannot afford veterinary services and it has a mobile Neuter Scooter to provide spay and neuter services for underprivileged and remote areas. SPCA runs reading and compassion classes in the local school system. It is truly a great asset for Virginia Beach and the surrounding communities.” –Writer
