Second Gear's December Non-Profit: Homeward Bound
Second Gear is excited to support Homeward Bound as our non-profit of the month!
Drop of donation items all month long and meet the Homeward Bound Team Saturday, 21/18!
Homeward Bound's mission is preventing and ending homelessness in our community through permanent housing and support. We envision an inclusive community where homelessness is rare and resolved quickly for all people through permanent housing and support. Homeward Bound has been using the Housing First model since 2006 and has housed more than 2,200 people with an 89% retention rate. Housing First is guided by the belief that people need basic necessities like food and a place to live before attending to anything less critical, such as getting a job, budgeting properly, or attending to substance use issues. We believe that housing is a basic human right, integral to self-worth and dignity. We believe that homelessness is a solvable problem, and that all services should be offered with respect and empathy, in the spirit of hope and recovery.
