Connections that break the cycle of crises

Our advocates build relationships with anyone experiencing homelessness, especially if it’s been going on a while. With trust, perseverance and help, everyone can find a way off the streets.

“I’m grateful for a warm, dry, comfortable place like this. And this Mission…treats people like me with respect. They’ve helped me a lot. Their Resource Advocate Program even helped me get my birth certificate and my social security card.”

– Christopher, 2015

Help connect our homeless neighbors with resources

We partner our homeless neighbors with an advocate who helps them navigate through referred services, assisting them to reach the individual goals each has chosen. Our hope is that they would learn to voice their needs and become more independent. Advocates meet our clients at doctor’s visits, social services, and other appointments to support them and help them as they communicate their needs.

In 2014

We provided over 4,000 one-on-one case management sessions.

This resulted in a record of 877 identifiable outcomes (connections to medical care, dental services, and social services), including finding secure housing for 30 of our homeless neighbors.

 

Some of our advocates are paid staff, some are volunteers, and all are essential to the people we serve. Help someone experiencing chronic homelessness find a way home.

I am experiencing homelessness and want help

We will partner you with an advocate that can help you set goals and navigate referred services to get you the assistance that you need. Whether it’s medical care, veteran’s benefits, social security, important documents, housing, or anything in between – we can help you voice your needs and get the help that you require.

Starting with a cup of coffee

One of the very simple tools that the Resource Advocate Program uses to get to know our neighbors in need is what we call the “Catalyst of Coffee.”  The coffee and teapots are always on here and we love to share a cup as we work toward a better future.
