Advocate for People Who Are Homeless - Training starts October 1st

Sierra Roots begins our next Advocacy Training Sessions on Thursday, October 1, 2020. The sessions will continue every Thursday for six weeks by videoconference. Time to be determined.

This Program operates on the principle of meeting the homeless community “where they are and how they are.” Our program trains and supports people to be advocates of chronically homeless individuals who indicate they are ready and willing to accept assistance.

Training features an informational curriculum to introduce you to the tools you’ll need to work one-on-one with a homeless person in our advocacy program. We will cover how to approach a homeless person with the objective of assisting them to make a plan for themselves, such as getting their legal commitments taken care of, finding a primary physician, getting a legal ID, or many other tasks. We will also look at the tools you'll need for follow-through, in order to help the homeless person achieve what they have set out to do to help themselves.
