Music is what moves us. We live our whole lives with rhythm around and inside us; from the beating of our hearts to the traffic outside an office window.
One of our co-founders showed this throughout his life. Bob Hentzen was always just a breath away from a song, and I rarely saw him without a guitar nearby.
Music has always been an important part of the communities and cultures served by Unbound.
In Bogota, Colombia, 30 sponsored children take part in a music class and learn about the importance of music.

A spirit of welcome fills the new Nadine Pearce Center, where families in eastern Guatemala gather as part of their local Unbound community.
Nadine was one of the co-founders of Unbound known for her warmth and hospitality. So it’s fitting that the center named in her honor is a home base for families and staff members from Unbound.
“It’s our center,” said Olga, whose son Douglas is sponsored through Unbound. “It’s like having a new home.”

Each year, Americans across the country come together on the MLK Day of Service to help their neighbors and communities. Here at Unbound, we are no strangers to helping others — abroad and in our own community.

Most definitely! Just like the Rorschach test, our logo can be interpreted in many different ways. Read these four other symbols in our logo, which truly show how we are Unbound.
