I have been volunteering/advocating for HomeFront for over six years. I have grown to learn and love all of its many programs fighting homelessness, while marveling at its leaders' strength and endurance. They provide shelter, crisis management, food assistance programs, childrens education/recreational opportunities, adult education, job preperation, parenting classes, financial management classes, to name a few. The wrap-around services, along with its committed staff, create an atmosphere of education, self-discipline, goal achievement and accountability, working most importantly with never-ending compassion. I am privelaged to be a part of this great organization!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the way my family, friends, and neighbors all gather around to help learn more about HomeFront, and assist those in need. It takes great leaders to rally volunteers to go out of their comfort zones. The willingness along with the desire to help others in crisis continues to inspire my work with HomeFront.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
look to see how the board of directors could be more involved on a hands-on basis. Their resources are very limited to those around.
Volunteer & I help advocate and assist with special projects for clients.
