Mission: Possible 

Three local nonprofits expand to help kids, cats, the abused

Colorado Springs is filled with hundreds of nonprofit organizations. No matter how much we'd like it to be, the Indy's annual Giving Issue could never be all-inclusive. It is, though, a way to give our readers a glimpse into the hard work that goes on every day, undertaken by those who want to make this city a healthier place for all to live.

The three organizations featured this year, Inside/Out Youth Services, TESSA and Dreampower Animal Rescue, may not seem to be connected. However, they are three agencies that have gone beyond their basic missions in order to meet emerging needs of their clients and the broader community.

Step into their worlds, if only for the few minutes it takes to read the following pages. Learn what they're doing. Then step outside your comfort zone. Offer to volunteer. Make a financial contribution. Spread the word about these causes, or others that are important to you.

It is our hope that you will use this guide as a starting point for making a difference ... not tomorrow, but today. Kirsten Akens
