Advocate for People Who Are Homeless

Save to Favorites

Sierra Roots

  • 1 person is interested

The Advocacy Training and Support program operates on the principle of meeting the homeless community "where they are and how they are." The program trains and supports people to be advocates of chronically homeless individuals who indicate they are ready and willing to accept assistance. This may mean helping them get their legal commitments taken care of, finding a primary physician, getting a legal ID, renewing their license, and many other tasks on an as-needed basis. Advocates enter into a training a program and are guided in their relationship with a homeless individual. Advocates also meet to share experiences and learn from each other. Trainings are offered twice each year, in Spring and Fall, and run once a week for 6 weeks. Next training TBA. EXPRESS INTEREST and we'll get in touch with more info.
