Making Poverty Personal: A Workshop on Homelessness

Join Hope for New York and the Rescue Alliance for a workshop to learn more about the experiences of our homeless neighbors. 

Homelessness is more than just a loss of shelter. The story of a homeless person is often a winding road that could include job loss, relational loss, mental illness, or addiction. Each story is unique, and so caring for each person experiencing homelessness requires a relationship and a personal touch. 

What's in store for the workshop? 

Overview of Homelessness in NYC | Learn from Brian Moll, Executive Director of the Rescue Alliance

Case Studies and Discussion | Engage with case studies of those who are experiencing homelessness.

Stories of Homelessness and Hope | Hear from formerly and currently homeless individuals in their own words.
