Thanks to everyone who joined us to celebrate the Grand Opening of Oma Village, our newest supportive housing program, with music, ice cream and tours of the site for 14 families leaving homelessness.

These modern, energy-efficient rental homes in Novato will share a community building with laundry and homework club, plus communal gardens and playgrounds. Thanks to the many individuals, groups and businesses who have helped raise the roof for Oma Village!

We expect to see families moving into their new homes before the holidays. In the meantime, we’re working to nail in the last pieces of our fundraising for Oma Village so this program can be operated sustainably with income from the modest rents. To help us nail it, please donate online or by check to Homeward Bound/Oma Village, 1385 N. Hamilton Parkway, Novato, CA  94949.
