“What drew me to want to work for the families at Solid Ground was attending one of the Home At Last Tours and hearing a wonderful, young mom tell us about how her life’s journey had landed her into homelessness with her children. She spoke about how desperate she was to provide them with a safe place to call home and a good education. The miracle of what she accomplished when given the opportunities at Solid Ground, reached into my heart and made me want to do whatever I could to help more families accomplish what she was describing. To help these amazing families give to their children what we all want, a safe place to call home, the chance for a good education and careers that offer a chance at self-sufficiency, has been an amazing gift to me and my family, that I am very thankful for.” 

Nancy Mueller, Former Chair of the Solid Ground Board of Directors
