Las Aguas Fund is the idea of Shoshanna Marks to assist the yoga and cultural communities in Cuba. Shoshanna lives in the San Francisco, CA area and runs Cuba Wellness Adventures, which provides yoga and arts related retreats in Cuba. Her dream has been to also form a non-profit organization that could assist in cultural exchanges, continuing education, building more inclusive communities, and “seva” yoga (i.e. of service / volunteer work) between foreigners and Cubans. “Las Aguas Fund” refers to the Waters, or the spiritual waters that flow amongst us all.

The Nancy Cordon Trust was created to honor the memory of Nancy Lynne Cordon. The Trust was established to enhance opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and help them to be part of their community by helping them, and those who love them, over some hard times. Donations from the Fund have been used to purchase washing machines, assist with paying rent, buy clothes and food, assist with payment to an integrated camp experience and many many other situations that have challenged people because they were 'down on their luck.'

Old Friends Joining Together!
We are honored to have been asked by the Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health / Intellectual disAbilities Services to assist Speaking for Ourselves! Almost since their beginning many decades ago, we have cheered them on, partnered with them, and helped however we could…. and now they join Networks officially under our “Non-Profit Incubator Program”. Speaking for Ourselves continues to be the amazing self-advocacy organization they have always been. In this new collaboration, we will provide them administrative support and infrastructure, organizational guidance, and fiscal sponsorship. And as a non-profit organization ourselves, we can receive tax deductible donations in their name.
Please join us in officially welcoming Speaking for Ourselves to the Networks’ family! We are pleased to extend our “umbrella” to these wonderful old friends.
