  • Homes for Families is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving low-income families through the development and replication of the Enriched Neighborhood® model. This model offers a powerful out-come based program of wrap-around services and education that empowers under-served families to build equity, self-sufficiency skills, and advocacy capacity to move themselves up in socio-economic status. For Veterans and their military families, these wrap-around services are enhanced with much-needed trauma-informed programs and services to address PTSD, Military Sexual Trauma, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues prevalent in military families. Homes for Families partners with non-profits, government entities, and corporations to bring the outcome-proven Enriched Neighborhood® model to communities.

Business leaders, individuals and community members are invited to raise donations in exchange for the experience of going over the edge of a prominent building. This unique event generates front page news, raises thousands of dollars and provides participants with a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Over The Edge is responsible for all technical aspects of the event including the insurance, professional staff and rappelling equipment. In addition, OTE provides a comprehensive Fundraising Manual to conduct a successful fund raising event. Our mission is to create a legacy with a 10 year goal to help non-profit organizations throughout North America raise $50 million dollars.
