The organization provides free direct services of healthy meals, house cleaning, rides to treatment, and peer support to clients throughout Ohio.

The organization serves women with netastatic cancer through the Mets Cancer program (NO Age NO Stage) as well as those in the In the Fight program (Simply Fight).
