Mission Statement

We help homeless people transform their lives by providing them with employment and housing so they get back on their feet step-by-step.

Description

Since 2017, we provide people experiencing homelessness with employment and housing and so far (working volunteer hours only), we have helped transform 17 lives. Starting October 2020, we began placing people who are homeless in guaranteed employment positions (non-competitive) and in housing units in accordance with our Homeward Bound 1-2-3 program. We had 98 on the list for one fast-food restaurant, 17 on the list for working at home as a customer service agent and 10 on the list for another fast food restaurant and placed these people accordingly. We also have 7 people applying for and getting placed as live-in caregivers.

We do what we do with the passion to help people who want to rebuild their lives and we are seeing them succeed!

We are succeeding in what we do so much so that we are growing in scope and need more help so we may have the capacity to help more people and meet the demand for our services.
