We are hitting the streets! But not likely we normally do, reaching out to struggling youth needing help. Instead, this time we are reaching out to our neighbors.
We are going to be going business to business around all of our Everett sites in order to better introduce Cocoon House: who we are, what we do, how we can help them, and how they can help us. We want to educate all the businesses around us how to best interact with any homeless or at-risk youth they might encounter, what services Cocoon House provides, as well as ways that the businesses could make a positive impact in their own backyard by supporting the work we do.
We will be going out in small groups of 2-4 people with some printed materials and having conversations (hopefully) with the business managers and owners. We will host a quick training on what to communicate to the businesses and how to answer some questions they might have before we go out for the day.
So if you are comfortable striking up conversations with others, enjoy walking and discovering new businesses in Downtown Everett, and are interested in supporting Cocoon House, this is a great opportunity for you!
