We have been invited to serve our neighbors in the upcomming homeless resouce day!
This is an opportunity for people with severe needs to access healthcare, legal help and to speak with the people who can make a big difference to their lives. After our positive turnout for the Point-in-Time count a few people in Social Services have been persistent in asking for the "skilled and very dedicated" volunteers from Downtown Hope to come and serve at this important event.
The main task is simply helping those who come to the event to find everything they could need. We are invited to be the open arms of welcome to people who don't often find welcome and to offer assistance in accessing systems which can be confusing to those who are in a disconnected and unstable place in their lives.
This is a great opportunity to show our love for the city, for our neighbors and for the organisations who are trying their best to make a difference.
