Consistent with its mission PRISM has also become active in various community service venues. For example, PRISM was a co-sponsor and members served as volunteers at the SunServe Social Services Center. This organization holds an annual GLBT family conference entitled "Valuing Our Families". PRISM members have also volunteered their time at the Poverello Center (a local HIV/AIDS community based food bank and thrift store) and at the Fort Lauderdale Gay and Lesbian Community Center (GLCC).

PRISM is currently advised by Dr. Timothy Moragne and Dr. Jan Faust. PRISM encourages everyone to attend its meetings.
