Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency (BOSS) is an Alameda County–based nonprofit organization that helps homeless, poor and disabled people achieve health and self-sufficiency. Sankofa House is Phase II in BOSS’s creation of Ursula Sherman Village, a development in West Berkeley that provides a beautiful, safe setting where homeless families can build skills that are essential to escaping homelessness and living independently in the community.
StopWaste supported BOSS's green building efforts by providing a grant, technical resources and access to professional green building consultants.
