Community Builders are a group of socially conscious and dedicated people who believe that everyone deserves access to opportunity, support, and shelter.
Through our monthly giving program, Community Builders support and engage in TOOF’s work of building a loving and supportive community with people experiencing homelessness.
Our clients experience profound change working with TOOF. Willie is a graduate of the Workforce First Program. Willie was unemployed and staying at the salvation army when he found out about TOOF. After going through the Workforce First Program, he is now living in an apartment and working full time for the city. He is enrolled in supportive banking, and actively saving money and building credit. His next goals are to get a car and become a minister!
“If it wasn’t for working with these guys, I wouldn’t have this full time job. Working those two days a week gave me the motivation to go full time. I wanna go to work and earn a check, I wanna feel good about that money, and feel good when I pay my bills. I’m so glad that I met The Other Ones, If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be where I’m at today.”
What You're Building
Become a recurring donor and receive a download of the upcoming TOOF E.P. as a thank you! That's right.... In an effort to raise some money for TOOF, and do something fun for our supporters, we hit the recording studio with some of our staff and a host of local musicians to create an album! The music that came from this collaboration is a heartfelt reflection on homelessness and poverty, and how we, as a community, can tackle these issues and offer support to our unhoused neighbors.
MEET THE COMMUNITY BUILDERS
“I support The Other Ones Foundation because no other organization does what they do, they give dignity, employment, and case management to folks experiencing homelessness. I have seen with my own eyes how changed folks are after working with them, because often they employ homeless folks to help other homeless neighbors. I know when I give to TOOF it goes right into the hands of the most vulnerable people in my community.”
“I’m proud to support TOOF’s work and overall mission. They are providing real solutions to tackle poverty and I believe that they are developing a model that could be effective in other cities. On top of the importance of their work, it’s great to see that the organization is backed by a diverse community of like-minded people who are dedicated to helping others.”
