Har HaShem is hosting Habitat for Humanity for an important informational and educational program about homelessness and poverty in Boulder County. Please join us to learn about the federal definition of poverty; how poverty affects life stability; how a community’s cost of living affects a family’s decisions and lifestyles; how stabilized housing stabilizes the lives of families; the mission and impact of Habitat for Humanity; how the stability continuum wheel is used by families, AND how you can help!
You will learn about a year-long monthly mentoring program called KEYS COMMUNITY (Keys to Volunteering), that targets families who need help getting control of their finances, their family decision-making, etc. No one who attends this program is committing to anything but learning, and there is no obligation to continue with the program, BUT folks who choose to become part of the Keys Community program will receive training (at two meetings in early 2013), and will then be assigned in groups of 5-6 volunteers to coach one client at once-a-month meetings over a one-year period.
Please come to learn about your community, about Habitat, and about their very important and successful Keys Community program. Rabbi Bronstein will lead a short teaching about the Jewish imperative to support the work of Habitat and other poverty-fighting efforts. This is a great opportunity to add an ongoing mitzvah project to your life!
Registration is strongly suggested for materials. For information, contact Sara-Jane Cohen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
