The Boulevard: The Road to Health and Home

  • 34 people are interested

Once a week, the male and female residents attend two separate sessions: The Men's Group and The Women's Group.

The Men's Group:

The topics vary from situation-specific issues to universal concerns such as sexual bias or healthcare. The session environment is freeform and discussion is strongly encouraged. The goal of this program is to establish a safe haven where individuals can freely discuss a wide range of topics with members of their own gender.

The Men's Discussion Group occurs weekly at 4 pm on Tuesday afternoons. The discussion facilitator must have experience leading groups of people who are working through serious physical, mental or emotional problems.

The facilitator is asked to plan, guide and manage a group session to ensure that the group's objectives are effectively meet, with clear thinking, and good participation. For the purposes of this group process, you, as the facilitator, will take a neutral stance. You step back from the detailed content and from your own personal views, and focus purely on the group dynamics.

Your main responsibility is to maintain a positive atmosphere for the group.

Description

The Boulevard is a medical respite program designed specifically to address the challenges faced by homeless adults discharged from hospitalization with no place to go to recuperate. We aid these individuals in completing their medical recovery or stabilization, begin to address the root causes of their homelessness, and find stable housing. With a capacity of 64 beds (15 women, 49 men), and a usual length of stay of 90 to 120 days, we were able to assist 334 individuals in rebuilding their lives in our last fiscal year.
