Week 1: Building Trust & Community
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. They show up not just to talk about housing, but to be a source of support. Outreach workers build community with our friends for many months – sometimes years – bringing critical survival gear, ways to keep warm, and in some cases providing respite from harsh conditions. While doing so, they are authentically connecting with our neighbors on a person-to-person level. It is through a steady pattern of showing up that JOIN works to build trust as the foundation of a journey to housing together.
When you give to JOIN, you’re not only giving to change someone’s situation, but also to build trust and connection. Today, consider a gift that is meaningful to you to help build community with us.
You’ll notice in the header above that we named this “Week 1.” 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!
