We’ve accomplished so much in just a few short months, and I am thrilled to share a few highlights of our journey with you.

As the landscape of homelessness changes and evolves, Homeward Bound continues to respond by furthering our understanding of toxic stress and adverse experiences through a staff-wide training in Trauma Informed Care.

Exciting things are on the horizon for Homeward Bound, and the movement has just begun! These successes are all possible because of you. On behalf of our team, thank you!

SEVEN YEARS LATER: SUCCESS STORY FROM A HOMEWARD BOUND GRAD


“I could not have done anything to further my life, nor stay sober, had it not been for this program. Some days, it was hard, and certainly more than humbling... but I truly needed the solace at Homeward Bound to recover. Seven years after graduating, I am still sober, work the 12 steps, have a sponsor, sponsor others and have an incredible life, almost a dream! We own a home, I got my Bachelor’s in Education and am now about two years away from my Master’s in Counseling. I cannot thank this program enough”
