Causes We Support

Women Steering Business (WSB) was founded in January 2013 by Becky Renfro Borbolla along with founding board members. Women Steering Business is a group of civic-minded business leaders who are dedicated to developing future female business leaders. We do this by funding livestock sales from young women who use the proceeds to advance their own education and vocational opportunities. Amber Weitzer currently serves on the Board of Directors.

Sharon Cox founded The Ladder Alliance in response to her experience as a high school business computer teacher in a low socio-economic area in El Paso, Texas. Most of her students were living in poverty and were the children of migrant farm workers. Knowing that computer skills were essential to working in a technological job market, Sharon realized that the computer skills her students were learning would assure  they could secure employment following high school graduation.

Following a move to Fort Worth in 2001, Sharon was able to realize her dream of opening a non-profit focusing on teaching computer skills to women victims of domestic violence and low-income women. In January of 2003, The Ladder Alliance held its first class consisting of seven students from Women’s Haven (now SafeHaven) in donated space at First Christian Church.

As an established 501(c)(3) organization, The Ladder Alliance serves between 300 and 400 women annually. The mission is to provide women victims of domestic violence and low-income women with the tools to lead self-reliant independent and successful lives.

DFW German Shepherd Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of homeless German Shepherds across the state of Texas.

Most of the German Shepherd's brought into our rescue program come from area shelters, though we also take in strays and owner surrendered GSDs. Over 40% of the dogs coming into our program are underweight, malnourished, and needing months of rehabilitation.

All of the dogs brought into our program are fully evaluated by our veterinarian and are fully vetted before being placed up for adoption.
