Interfaith Day of Homelessness Awareness (age 18+) Referral
We can end homelessness together!
On Tuesday, November 15, 2011, faith communities throughout Portland and Multnomah County will observe the second annual “Interfaith Day of Homelessness Awareness.” This year’s Day of Homelessness Awareness will focus on three concrete actions that people of faith can take to help end homelessness: Donate/Volunteer/Advocate. The Day of Homelessness Awareness will include a “Walk of Awareness” on November 15, starting at 7 am at the Downtown Chapel Roman Catholic Parish, and ending at the 13 Salmon Family Day Center at First Unitarian Church. Stops along the way will include the newly-opened Bud Clark Commons. Reflections by spiritual leaders, stories about homelessness and comments by civic leaders on what is being done to address the three “faces” of homelessness—adults, youth, and families--will take place along the walk. Participants will also hear specific calls to action they can take to get more deeply involved in addressing homelessness.
We need volunteers to pass out information and help guide participants along the route of the walk. We’ll provide the stylish orange vests; coffee and breakfast pastries will also be provided. BYORG (bring your own rain gear).
Your support is appreciated!
