Review for HOMEWARD BOUND OF MARIN, Novato, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For more than a few years, I have worked with groups and agencies who serve the homeless in their communities. I feel priviledged to serve as a volunteer (member of their board as well as working in some of their programs) of Homeward Bound because I experience the core values which influence the entire organization. Respect for the human dignity of those served and empowerment for them to find avenues out of the dependency of being homeless. through job training, staff support and hope! Homeward Bound does more than simply house individuals and families in rough times. They creatively work to become part of the solution to end homelessness.

Review for HOMEWARD BOUND OF MARIN, Novato, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been associated with Homeward Bound for almost 10 years. Presently, I am privileged to serve on the Board. Both the leadership and the staff are dedicated to serving the needs of those who come into our programs. I am particularly impressed by the creativity, in these economically hard times, used to empower our clients to go home for good through job training and supportive services. Working as a volunteer has enhanced my capacity to be a compassionate caring human being.
