Nonprofit spotlight: Homeward Bounds grows by leaps and …

Has your organization seen a significant change in revenue in recent years?
We have seen a large increase in revenue over the last three years, supporting the work of ending homelessness through permanent housing.

How would you describe that change?
Until this year, we’ve seen government funds from all sources pretty static. This year, we are seeing some troubling signs in all sections of government, as their budgets seem tighter than they’ve ever been. This years’ allocations will be lower than in year’s past, with suggestions that they will continue to lower over the next couple of years. This means private dollars will be ever more important.

What is the outlook for your organization?
We have a positive outlook. Our focus on real solutions to homelessness engages people, as they have to make tough decisions about where their contributions will go. It seems that everyone is focused on outcomes, and it’s hard to argue with our success moving folks without homes into permanent housing. …

Our community is very generous; people want to help, and they want to give to nonprofits that make a significant impact. It’s a matter of education and making the ask. — Brian Alexander, director, Homeward Bound
