The Homeward Bound Halton program helps to lift single moms and their families out of poverty. The program’s Industry Council helps to oversee the program by advising participants on job placement and career possibilities. They also mentor participants during their studies, and provide assistance  in securing meaningful employment upon graduation.

We are grateful to all the community partners and the many friends who have worked closely with us over the years to bring this marvelous program to Halton.
