Review for Homeward Bound of Marin, Novato, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering on Homeward Bound's Social Enterprise Committee for ten years. Along with staff and other volunteers, we developed and marketed their "Halo" brand chocolate truffles. Behind the scenes, this took numerous hours, days, months, years experimenting with recipes, taste testing, manufacturing, packaging, graphics design, art, sampling, selling the truffles. So many people at different levels such as cooks, entrepreneurs, grocers, chocolatiers, all dedicated to finding meaningful ways to end homelessness. It has been a very fulfilling experience volunteering and watching this one small venture contribute to Homeward Bound's goals.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

is listening to former residents who were rehabilitated and taught job skills and now have meaningful jobs and their own homes.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

so dedicated to the mission of ending the homeless problem

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

achieve it's goal of ending homelessness
