Ministry to the Homeless
9 a.m. - 1:30 p.m., Monday - Friday
Through one-on-one intake interviews, volunteer case managers discuss the client's situation at length, noting their progress toward self-sufficiency goals.
Clients are provided with:
- referrals to dining rooms, clinics and shelters
- follow-up assessment, encouragement and referrals, depending on need and progress
For some clients, leaving the streets behind and moving toward independence is a difficult transition. To promote these changes, the Ministry to the Homeless provides:
- case management
- job training, placement and education
Those who make honest attempts to implement significant changes in their lives, deserve recognition for their efforts. This positive reinforcement comes in the form of:
- vouchers for identification
- bus tickets to job interviews
- bicycles for transportation to new jobs
- work boots
Self-sufficiency is a difficult transition to make, and not every client is successful on his or her first attempt. For the sake of encouragement and accountability, we provide employment follow-up, as well as budgeting and housing advice. Successes are rewarded, and setbacks are treated as learning experiences.
