One of Organic Movements' founding principals is a belief that giving back to the community that supports us is vital. We endeavor to give our students the opportunity to give back as we strive to create not only well-rounded dancers, but people. A few times throughout the year we pick a local non-profit community organization or charity to work with, partnering in fundraisers and community enrichment programs.

SUMMER 2016 OUTREACH PARTNER: SOS CHILDRENS VILLAGES
SOS Children's Villages - Florida is a foster care neighborhood in Coconut Creek. The Village is a tree-lined, cul-de-sac of twelve houses, which are home to seventy-two boys and girls. The SOS promise of "Healing, Hope and Home for Every Child" assures every child growing up in the Village a safe and secure home, a nurturing family, a vibrant childhood and array of services to help them overcome their past traumas and build a successful future.
The children at SOS have been removed from their homes and families by the courts due to abuse, neglect and abandonment. The Village allows for brothers and sisters, who are typically separated while in foster care, to reunite and maintain their family connection. SOS also provides an after-care program called Next Steps that helps their young adults create a plan for transitioning out of the Village and assists them in finding housing, jobs, further education and also skills needed for starting their own families.
You can make a difference and be part of the SOS Village family by making a donation, volunteering your time, attending SOS events and taking a tour of the Village with friends and colleagues.
