Help BOSS  spread the word nationally about our innovative & successful programs to help END POVERTY, HOMELESSNESS, and MASS INCARCERATION!

Since 1971 BOSS has helped thousands of families and individuals overcome poverty and crisis, and rebuild their lives. We have the opportunity to share this work nationally with a Visionaries  documentary to air on PBS! The project has already been greenlighted by producers, we have already nearly raised half the production budget, and we need to raise the rest by August.

A documentary film - plus other video marketing tools the filmmakers will create for BOSS  - will help us educate policy makers, bring in new partners and supporters, and expand our work to make an even bigger impact!

Investors will be recognized in the credits of the film, to air in PBS multiple markets nationally!!! We will also invite all investors to a special screening in Oakland CA when the documentary debuts!!

Thank you for your support!! Please donate & SHARE!!!
