Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity’s vision is simple: A world where everyone has a decent place to live. Since its founding in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller, Habitat for Humanity International has built and rehabilitated more than 350,000 homes with families in need, becoming a true world leader in addressing the issues of poverty housing. They bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
Habitat affiliates around the world follow the same basic model – volunteers work with future homeowners to build or renovate houses, which are then sold to partner families at no profit, with no interest charged on the mortgage. The money from the sale of each house goes into a revolving fund to support future building projects.
“Habitat has successfully removed the stigma of charity by substituting it with a sense of partnership. The people who will live in the homes work side by side with the volunteers, so they feel very much that they are on an equal level.” – Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter

Maximum Hope Foundation
The Maximum Hope Foundation is a non-profit organization created by three-time Emmy-winning actor Brad Garrett that offers practical aid to families with a child battling a life-limiting illness.
The inspiration for this foundation came shortly after Brad befriended a family whose young son was battling cancer. Tragically, the boy lost the battle and passed away at age eleven. This is when the mission became clear to Brad. The non-profit organizing would offer practical aid to families with a child battling a life-limiting illness.

Conine Clubhouse, named in honor of World Series champion Jeff Conine and his family, opened in May 1997 to serve as a “home away from home” for families of children receiving medical care at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. Families can stay free of charge (based on availability) in a comfortable and nurturing environment. Since opening, the Conine Clubhouse has housed many families from across the United States and other countries.
A physician, social worker or nurse must make guest referrals to Conine Clubhouse. We aim to keep our wait list as short as possible, to help give families in need a chance to stay at our beautiful facility.
The clubhouse is a nonprofit residence that obtains funding through the annual Conine All-Star Golf Classic, as well as through planned gifts and individual donations to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation. Please help maintain the Clubhouse and assist future guests by making a financial contribution. Gifts of any size are welcome and appreciated.

St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
