I started working for InnVision Shelter Network last September, and became a founding member of the our NextGen Advisory Board in January. I love what I do every day because both IVSN and the NextGen Board are driving forces of innovation to improve people's lives and get homeless individuals and families back on their feet.
IVSN recognizes that someone down on their luck needs more than just a roof over their head and a hot meal to turn their life around. That's why our services that go "Beyond the Bed" are the heart of what we do. Our Case Managers work directly with clients in our programs to help them obtain and maintain good jobs, to provide healthcare, mental health services, addiction services, childcare, and more to inspire them to give their lives another chance.
90% of our program graduates are successful in returning to permanent housing and self-sufficiency.
The NextGen Board is taking IVSN's mission to the next level of innovative thinking. Our board includes socially concious young professionals working at places such as Google, LinkedIn, and the Oakland Raiders. An example of one of our projects is the Resume Wizard, a tool that, when complete, will help people make resumes from scratch incredibly simple.
