A few of the organizations Mrs. Hornsby has been involved with include: Child Development Resources (Board Member and Chair), Historic Virginia Land Conservancy (Co-founder), College of William and Mary (Board of Visitors), Children's Museum of Richmond (Board Member), Massey Cancer Center, Habitat for Humanity, Williamsburg AIDS Network, An Achievable Dream, and ALS Foundation.
