As outlined in the PRISM 10-Year Plan, the Homeless Alliance is conducting outreach with faith community leaders, members, and volunteers by giving them tools for responding to those in need. The faith community can not only give money, food, or clothing to those seeking assistance; they can also help screen for eligibility for income-enhancements, apply for these enhancements, and link those in need with local agencies that can assist in keeping them housed. This is a key part of the Alliance homelessness prevention efforts (The “P” in PRISM…for more about the plan, go here).

As such, the Homeless Alliance is proud to announce the second in a series of workshops entitled “The Homeless and At-Risk at my Door: What Can I Do?”. This workshop will provide the faith community with a wealth of information on local resources and mainstream benefits for those in need.
