BOSS's mission is to help homeless, disabled, and poor people achieve health and self-sufficiency, and to fight agianst the root causes of poverty and homelessness. The organization operates 20 programs in Berkeley, Oakland, and Hayward, California that serve over 2,000 families and individuals each year, providing 4 categories of service -- housing, health, economic development, and social justice.
