Families with children are among the fastest-growing segment of the homeless population
According to the National Low-Income Housing Coalition, 2008
The golden rule is our essential ingredient.The Sweet Home Project is our philanthropy to help end family homelessness. Through a partnership with One Family Inc., a nonprofit initiative of the Paul and Phyllis Fireman Charitable Foundation, we donate 35% of the retail price of Sweet Home goodies & gifts, year-round, directly to scholarships as a pathway out of poverty to economic self sufficiency. The best news is, not one of the mothers has returned to shelter since completing the program. You may also support the The Sweet Home Project and donate directly to One Family Inc. here.
