The founders and staff at our company are passionate about community service and charity. In addition to providing financial support for local and global organizations, we roll up our sleeves and get involved.
Our President, Patty Friedman, has taken part in the Washington, DC Avon Walk for Breast Cancer every year since 2008. She has mobilized a group of young people and with their help has personally raised over $140,000.00 for the cause.
In addition to working with these young children for the Avon Walk, Patty provides them with avenues where they can serve others with their hands and voices. In fact, Patty’s group was nominated as Youth Volunteer Group of the Year in the County of Fairfax for 2014.
The staff at Language Innovations proudly supports homeless and vulnerable individuals in DC by donating to Thrive DC. This organization provides food services as well as assistance with housing, employment, legal aid, health screenings and job training. We believe that all inhabitants of the District should have the opportunity to not only survive, but to thrive in our nation’s capital.
The Friedman’s are grateful that their family was completed through international adoption. Both the parents and children are passionate about their Guatemalan born daughter’s birth country and strongly support Adopt-a-Village through sponsorship of an individual child for his education as well as general support of the program for holiday needs, project support and emergency funds.
We consider those that serve our country our greatest heroes. We are proud to provide our services to individuals in the military at a deeply discounted rate. We are proud to support organizations that raise awareness for the needs of our servicemen, active and retired and continue to work with and support wonderful organizations like Fisher House, Decorate a Vet, and many more.

Our Daily Bread
We are a volunteer-based organization focused on easing the plight of low income residents in the Fairfax County area of Virginia. We draw volunteers from local faith-based groups, community organizations, local businesses, schools and universities.
Decorate A Vet
Decorate A Vet is a non-profit 501(c)3-pending organization that was founded by Jeffrey W. Jones of Classic Stonescaping & Gardens in Falls Church, Virginia. Each year members and supporters of Decorate A Vet raise funds and receive donations of time, goods and services to help our local veterans who have helped us live freer lives. With the help of volunteers consisting of neighbors, friends, family members and local business owners, Decorate A Vet assemble annually to refresh and restore local veterans’ homes for the holidays by cleaning, repairing and decorating to beautify those homes as well as their community.
Thrive DC serves anyone in need, providing services to men and women of all ages, backgrounds, races, and ethnicities. The individuals who come through our doors often face multiple, complex barriers to a more stable life. They are hungry and sick, frustrated and confused, and lonely and hopeless. Many are diagnosed with mental illness, and some struggle with substance abuse. Others have been victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. A majority of our clients are living with chronic health problems-often without regular access to crucial medical care.
Adopt-a-Village in Guatemala
Adopt-a-Village in Guatemala is a small, grassroots non-profit that works with remote villages in the rugged northwestern Huehuetenango region. This area is one of five in Guatemala that contains the worst levels of poverty. Few public services or other forms of assistance exist. AAV partners with leaders of these Mayan villages to build a more promising future for their children by providing education to Mayan youth and training to families in sustainable gardening to combat one of the world’s highest levels of chronic child malnutrition.
AVON Walk for Breast Cancer
We are committed to moving the breast cancer field forward by gaining a fuller understanding of the disease, pursuing prevention, and ultimately finding a cure. The Avon Foundation is proud to have supported tremendous progress in research and care.
Thanks to the inspired efforts of more than 192,000 Avon Walk participants, more than $500 million has been raised and donated to breast cancer programs since 2003. Your support funds research to find a cure or prevention, as well as programs that enable all patients to access quality care. A key priority is the medically underserved, including low-income, elderly, and minority individuals.
