Reggie Cintron has been a member of the Project HOME community for almost six years.  He shared his life story at a recent fund-raising benefit hosted by Wolverton & Company.  He is a gentle and caring soul, and contributes in many ways to our work and mission.

In the Project HOME mission statement, we state, “An integral part of our work is education about the realities of homelessness and poverty and vigorous advocacy on behalf of and with homeless and low-income persons for more just and humane public policies.”
