If you belong to a church that goes out to feed homeless people or a student group that goes to the streets of Cleveland to help those sleeping rough, we have a training opportunity for you. We have a group of experienced outreach workers who will provide resource information and answer questions based on their years of service. They will talk about ethical issues and the philosophy of serving those outside.
It is tough to build a trusting relationship with those who have nearly given up on society. Many have faced tough times and have seen the system fail for them. Others have made huge errors in judgement that they are not willing to admit. There are those who have trauma or mental health issues that leave them nearly paralyzed with depression or fear. There so many reasons that lead people to the streets, and it takes a special person to work with these individuals.
We will have a discussion of resources that are available and talk about problems facing the population. There will be pizza available so we need those who attend to RSVP for the training session. Any group that goes out to the streets of Cleveland are welcome to attend. The training is May 8 at 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at NEOCH. Call 216/432-0540 to reserve your space.
