LET’S MAKE THE DIFFERENCE TOGETHER
Choose BOSS for Giving Tuesday because we've been choosing hope over despair, action over inaction, and transformation over stagnation for over 50 years. Our legacy is one of resilience, dedication, and unwavering commitment to creating a better world for the most vulnerable in our community
"Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and ALWAYS START WITH THE PERSON NEAREST YOU." - Mother Theresa
Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency (BOSS) believes that all homeless people can turn their lives around, no matter what disabilities, health crises, or economic challenges they are facing.
The men, women, and children BOSS serves are at the bottom of the economic ladder—they are 100% homeless and very low income. Only 8% of people entering BOSS have any earned income, and a large number have zero income when they first come to us due to welfare time limits. Over 70% have one or more disability (physical, mental, developmental) that prohibits them working full-time, although most do want to work—for income, social connection, and to contribute to the community.
Every person and family BOSS serves is unique, facing individual challenges, life experiences, and crises. BOSS believes in them all—and provides housing and services that helps them believe in themselves, and make these kinds of changes in their lives.
Donations help BOSS sustain these life-changing housing and service programs, as well as continually seek new and better solutions for homeless and poor people!
Your donation will help us continue to innovate these and other exciting solutions to homelessness—thank you for your partnership and your contribution
Help homeless families and people in need this holiday season by adopting a family during our Hope for the Holiday Drive. BOSS collects Wish List items to share with homeless families and individuals throughout the season (some items are needed year-round, as well). We also organize holiday meals in all of our programs with help from volunteers and donors - let us know if you can help! The holidays can be stressful for many people - even more so for people who are struggling to meet basic needs. The Holiday drive provides extra warmth, caring, and joy for everyone BOSS serves while they work hard towards their goals.
Contact Gwen Austin for more information - she can help you organize a drive with your workplace, club, school, or place of faith!
