CHAP also hosts the annual Taking the Lead Youth Summit each March, which is free for all participants and features motivational speakers, interactive workshops, HIV/AIDS testing and counseling, meals, entertainment, and door prizes for local youth ages 11 – 18.
Girls on the Run® is dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. Meeting twice weekly, we teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The 20-lesson curriculum is taught by certified coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. Running is used to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. Important social, psychological, and physical skills and abilities are developed and reinforced throughout the program. The result—making the seemingly impossible, possible, and teaching girls that they can.
Lynchburg Daily Bread provides a free, hot meal every day of the year to the homeless and hungry of our community. All are welcome and guests may have as many servings as they like. More than 98% of our food is donated from local colleges, grocery stores and restaurants, while 10-15 volunteers each day cook and serve lunch. We now also bring meals to Appomattox, Altavista, Bedford and Pamplin. In 2020, we served 115,478 meals to the homeless and hungry of our community, the most ever in our history.
Miriam’s House is a local nonprofit dedicated to ending homelessness and rebuilding lives.

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Central Virginia recruits, trains and supports volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children.

CASA volunteers work alongside attorneys, social workers, therapists and other providers, advocating exclusively for the child’s best interests.
