HFF is facing serious challenges with budget cutbacks. Please be generous. We are losing the battle for the family in our culture.
I work as a development director at this organization. When I hear or see that a head of household has been employed, the children are able to attend the Dowd Education Center, and the family moves to independence it is like watching a child take their first steps. It is a thrill each and every time. I especially enjoy sharing the news of what we are doing with committed donors and prospects.
I came to The Homeless Families Foundation a little over a year ago after working with a Boys & Girls Club. I wanted the opportunity to continue to work with children afterschool and in the summer. Since coming here I have been amazed at the academic standards the HFF Dowd Education Center provides for these innocent victims of homelessness. The meals, classwork and enrichment activities are provided in a safe and caring environment where everyone is encouraged to do their best. Seeing these children grow has been very rewarding for me.
