Jeff Ronald, MS Co-Founder & Chairman of the Board and Judson Malone, Co-Founder and Volunteer Executive Director of The Springboard Collaborative, Inc. discussed the statewide Delaware nonprofit dedicated to building dignified dwellings and real communities for the homeless. Inspired by Denmark and Finland’s housing solutions and the Stanford’s Collective Impact, they provide simple, pod housing that offers privacy, security, and that important physical mailing address. Working with area social service providers, TSC provides disadvantaged Delawareans low or no cost interim shelter in a small community that offers ‘wrap around’ services that focus on food security, education and employment opportunities, substance abuse and mental health treatment and primary and specialized healthcare. They help our marginalized neighbors stabilize, achieve self-reliance and pursue their full potential, all aimed at achieving financial wellness toward getting and keeping permanent housing. TSC goal by 2029 is ultimately achieving ‘Functional Zero’ homelessness in Delaware.
“We can transform Delaware into a state with near-real-time, sustainable zero homelessness… Join us in making Vision2029 a reality…homelessness is solvable.”
