My Story

As the Executive Director of Building Opportunities for Self Sufficiency (BOSS), boona cheema exhibits the uncanny ability to reach and serve our community's poorest residents. Since 1978, boona has helped BOSS grow from a one-stop center to a County-wide network of model programs. She is at the forefront of the fight against cuts to homeless and poverty programs. Her work flows from personal experiences of being displaced from her home and volunteering with war-wounded children. Her experience, knowledge, and commitment make boona an invaluable resource for those struggling at the bottom rungs of society.
