We have supported Abode for a number of years. When we choose a non profit to align with we look for several positive factors: efficient use of donated funds or services, great staff members who exemplify the mission of the organization and visionary leadership from both the top staff members and the board. Abode excels in all three categories. They have ranked at the top with Charity Navigator for 5 straight years, their staff members all believe in the mission with vigor and often support it with their own donations and finally the top staff and board could not be more supportive and in sinc with one another and the entire community they serve. Abode is a winner in every senses of the word.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have visited every facility they own and/or manage. Support services are an integral part of their mission. They don't just house people in need, they provide social services so they can help them selves out of homelessness.
