The InnVision Shelter Network (www.ivsn.org) is the largest homelessness service provider in Silicon Valley. With 18 facilities and 1,000 beds, it provides comprehensive services to homeless clients. IVSN's model has a 90% success rate in returning homeless families and individuals to permanent housing and self-sufficiency.
In January 2014, InnVision Shelter Network founded its pioneer NextGen Advisory Board. The NextGen Board brings together socially conscious young professional leaders from around Silicon Valley to formulate new strategies to end homelessness.The NextGen Advisory Board uses the skills of its diverse membership to develop and execute functional projects based on the needs of IVSN, driving both strategic and tactical innovation for the agency.
As a part of its mission to engage the young professional population of Silicon Valley about the severity of homelessness in our community, the NextGen Board is pleased to launch its inaugural fundraising campaign on behalf of IVSN. We strive to educate and mobilize our peers in the fight against homelessness here in our own community. To kickstart this effort, we want to make a collective gift to IVSN before the end of its fiscal year on June 30.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about homelessness in our community and for being part of the solution!
