Participants included Fairview Recovery Services, Broome County Veteran Services, the Family Enrichment Network, the SOS Shelter, the Free Clinic, AVRE, the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse, Southern Tier Independence Center, NAACP, Opportunities for Broome, Broome County Urban League, Binghamton's school district and Housing Authority, the First Ward Action Council, City Council, Citizen Action, the Southern Tier AIDS Program, the Prison Re-entry Task Force and Hands of Hope Ministries.
