There are literally hundreds of nonprofit groups in Monterey County. Each has its own niche, whether it be cultural, political, environmental, educational, or social. No matter how big some of them may be today, most of them began with one or two people--individuals who saw a problem and, through their own initiative, reached out to solve it.
Today, the Weekly profiles four of those groups. One offers free medical care for the poor. One feeds the hungry. One rescues animals and finds them new homes. One tries to ensure that no one with AIDS has to live on the streets. Each of them started with a simple vision. Each demonstrates what is most precious in the human spirit.
