Homeless Jesus by Timothy Schmalz

A crucial element to a sustainable and empowering ministry is to understand those we serve and acknowledge them as experts of their own experience.. 

This seminar will help you and your parish:

  • Understand the causes of homelessness and the continuation of homelessness 

  • Adapt the best language and safe environment when providing ministry to those who are homeless

  • understand how approach and having an awareness of "person in" environment has a positive affect in creating a trust relationship

  • How to be proactive and the best methods to empower those who are homeless. 

This seminar will be led by a social worker as well as indivduals who are/have experienced homelessness. 

This is a FREE event. Donations accepted will go towards outreach.
