$6K LOAN HELPS BUSINESS HELP HOMELESS:
EXPANDING BOUNDARIES BEYOND
As founder and CEO of Boundaries Beyond, Porsche Skinner (pictured above right) has been working with homeless and family mission-focused individuals since 2018. The company offers wrap-around services for homeless individuals and families. Its goal is to expand a culture of recovery and trauma-informed care in the existing homeless services delivery system in Los Angeles and surrounding cities. Utilizing the housing-first model combined with intensive case management, Boundaries Beyond aims to assist homeless individuals who have been placed in permanent housing via substance abuse treatment and provide additional assistance with accessing other supportive services.
In May 2022, Porsche met with Hollywood BusinessSource Center consultant Supranee May seeking guidance to apply for a loan so she could expand her company to hire additional employees. Supranee provided business services and technical assistance, which helped Porsche secure a $6,000 microloan, allowing her to hire one employee.
