From the moment I took my first tour of this phenomenal organization, I knew that Save the Family understood how to conquer homelessness! Families are provided their own living space... a career center helps adults find meaningful, well-paying jobs for self-sufficiency...counseling and budgeting classes are available for all family members. Accountability is key and the high success rate of families who "graduate" is a testament to this fine organization's well proven model. The dedicated staff and 1000's of volunteers who serve are proud to be associsted with this 20 year old agency.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

attending graduation ceremonies & meeting families who have graduated from this program and have now broken the cycle of homelessness and have achieved self-sufficiency.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Serving on the board, meeting families who have "conquered homelessness" and using the resources our company has to donate time and materials for remodeling needs at the agency.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

AWESOME! I have never met a more dedicated and long tenured group!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand services to eliminate the waiting list of families who are homeless.

I got involved with this group due to several reasons. - Great program and success rate. - Very accountable. We help the families become self sufficient. (It is not a handout.) - Excellent staff who care about their clients and help them be successful. - Their is definitely a need for this in the community. (Not a solution looking for a problem.)

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Attending graduation where we get to hear the stories of the clients and see them graduate out of the program.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Hearing the clients stories and seeing them graduate from the program.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very professional, hard working and really cared about the families.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Add more houses, staff and programs to help more homeless families. We could expand our Career Development Center and maybe add a day care center.
