SPECIAL SECTION – With many nonprofits struggling because of the pandemic, we’re turning the spotlight on them and the people who are fostering a sense of community throughout the Capital Region.

In these stories, we feature stories on a wide range of local organizations, including the Bus Stop Club, which supports the siblings and families of children with critical illnesses and developmental disabilities; and Wellspring, which aids survivors of relationship and sexual abuse.

We’ve also highlighted the leaders and volunteers who are the backbones of these organizations, like Miki and Rachel Conn, a mother-daughter duo who have both led the Hamilton Hill Arts Center over the years; and Shane Bargy, executive director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Schenectady.

Read below for the stories of the Animal Protective Foundation in Glenville to Saratoga County’s Wellspring.
