Hullabaloo Week 1: Building Community & Trust

One of JOIN’s core principles is building relationships and community. Outreach workers do this day in and day out - connecting with our neighbors who are sleeping outside and living in precarious situations.

We’re gearing up for Hullabaloo 2022!

JOIN us as we celebrate with house parties all over the city to watch a program hosted by Poison Waters on October 7th at 6 PM!
