Homeward Bound is the largest provider of transitional housing for homeless and domestic violence families with children in metropolitan Phoenix, Arizona. In 2000, Homeward Bound opened The Thunderbirds Family Village, a five-acre, secured campus that contains 80 two-bedroom housing units. This housing focuses on younger mothers and their children who have been victimized by domestic violence and homelessness. A Lodestar matching grant provided over three years enabled Homeward Bound to launch a collaborative children’s learning center—in partnership with the YMCA and Southwest Human Development, another human services provider—on the Thunderbirds campus.
