With dignity first, to return individuals and families with children to domestic autonomy.
By leveraging compassion through collaboration, individuals and families with children are returning to domestic autonomy with dignity, 1 at a time. It’s how we do things. Founded by someone who is formerly unhoused, we value hard work; we know it’s the only way any 1 can change their circumstances. We also value 1-on-1 relationships that break down stereotypes and build community. We start and fund events and programs like Tent City, Veterans Matter, Toledo Streets, Project Connect and more. Join us – YOU MATTER!
