There are so many professionals and organizations we’re currently working with and learning from
We aim to continue to build relationships with those whose message is important and commit to help spread the word
Currently, we have a number of programs in various stages of development and management, all of which make us proud and excited to bring to our communities. All programs can be pulled under one of two areas of sub-impact: Sustainability (environmentally friendly and green practices) and Wildlife and Animal Protection, Security and Stability. Often our programs address more than one area of impact, as you can see from a couple of our current programs below:
CONSERVATION & EDUCATION

ANIMAL RESCUE & PET THERAPY

Provide a safe sanctuary for abandoned senior pets to live out their days in comfort
Assist in pairing rescued animals in need of forever companions into safe and loving homes
Provide a safe sanctuary for animals in temporary need of housing (ex: animals whose companions have been incarcerated, are undergoing recovery treatment, homeless seeking assistance, deployment, etc.)
Provide a safe sanctuary, including discreet extraction, for animals that are caught in domestic violence situations until victims can be placed in a safe, secure environment
Bring the amazing power of pet therapy to our communities, through senior programming, at-risk youth, veterans, first responders and more
WISHES ON WHEELS
Meals for people in need
Job Placement and Training
Our “Wishes on Wheels” program utilizes rescued food (to eliminate food waste) to provide nutritious, homemade meals to homebound individuals. The staff of culinary and nutrition experts will come in part, from those looking to gain education and credit in these fields, as well as veterans’ placement. Technological development of applications to order supplemental food and toiletries for home-bound individuals, and to be delivered with the meals, is also part of the program. Additionally, staff of business administration and mechanics will come in part, from those looking to gain education and credit in these fields, as well as veterans’ placement. The education and sustainability focus of this program is multi-faceted and intended to assist in many levels of the community and its members.
Other great features of Wishes on Wheels include:
Reducing food waste through food rescue programs
Mobile meal service, and mobile meal & necessity delivery
Educational credits & hands-on training; mentorships
Veterans placement and staffing
Another great funding strategy is our ‘Wish Granted’ program, granting one wish at a time to an individual, cause or event. Impact Statements will be accepted in 2020, with more information to follow.
