Week 2: Together, We Keep Going
Juli shares with us this week how JOIN’s commitment to authentic relationships helped keep her going. JOIN operates from a series of core values and principles that shape every relationship we build with our friends. Today we share four of those principles with you:
- We walk alongside: We value those experiencing homelessness as the primary agents of change centering respect, strength, and resilience.
- Inclusive Community: We value restoring connections and rebuilding community – because the experience of being without a home is one of alienation, degradation, and dehumanization.
- Flexibility & Innovation: We value creativity and adaptation in our responses to homelessness – because the issues are complex and multi-layered.
- Non-judgmental: We accept each person without judgment and treat people with dignity and respect.
You’ll notice in the header above that we named this “Week 2.” To help celebrate thirty-years, partner volunteer-fundraisers across the city are connecting with friends and colleagues to help us reach a goal of $115,000 by October 31st! Over the next several weeks, you’ll receive highlights about JOIN programs. See below to learn how you can be involved too!
