I have had the pleasure of knowing Barb Green for the past 17 years and can't say enough good things about the Homeless Emergency Project. Barb and her late husband, Pastor Otis Green, were homeless advocates long before most of us had the issue on our radar screen. They realized that, through an unfortunate illness, injury or downturn in the economy, virtually anyone could find himself or herself homeless. HEP doesn't just provide housing, food and health care for its clients, it gives them a reason to hope and to become self-sufficient again. It's a model to be admired and replicated.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The people who founded it are top notch on every level. They are unwavering in their commitment to the homeless.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
