Beyond Shelter is an A+ agency. They treat clients as if they were family. They don't judge and they work hard to help people get back on their feet. Their goal is to help families overcome barriers to housing and provide ongoing support to them while homeless and after they move into housing. They also assist families with social activities for the kids such Summer and Winter Camp, classes for arts and crafts and dance classes. In addition, they connect families with resources to assist families with their needs. This is a great agency and it can alway use more funding to keep providing the great services that they provide.

I would like to see this agency get more funding to help them to continue fighting the battle of poverty and the homeless. I would like to see this agency have more access to getting Section 8 vouchers for familes.
