Homeward Bound's mission is to create pathways out of poverty for homeless families ready to make a change.
Homeward Bound is a family stabilization program with a housing component. Our two-generational approach simultaneously equips parents and kids with tools they need to thrive while removing obstacles in their way. Parents access resources to achieve financial stability and learn how to emotionally support and advocate for their kids; while children receive high-quality childhood education and enrichment experiences.

Homeward Bound serves 150 families (500 individuals of which 300+ are children) annually with programming that builds resiliency, stabilizes the family, and breaks the cycles of poverty and abuse that lead to homelessness.
