The Home Team develops teams of volunteers to create social support systems for our neighbors as they move from living on the streets to homes. The program’s mission is to lovingly support our neighbors as they transition into housing. Support can range from the practical (helping transport to medical appointments) to relational (going out for a cup of coffee). The ultimate goal is to develop strong relationships and build stronger communities and neighborhoods to achieve our vision that homelessness is rare, short-lived and nonrecurring.
