Our latest Home Teams training was a great success! It was great to see so many enthusiastic volunteers, including Heading Home board member Ken Jones and his wife Patty. The training was conducted by Home Team Program Manager Kristy Anderson and our Housing Director Jodie Jepson. Thank you to our new, and ongoing, volunteers who will make a lasting impact in the lives of our newly housed residents.

The Power of Home Teams
I manage the teams of volunteers who help our clients (we call them neighbors) as they settle into their new lives in housing. Most tend to isolate and need gentle encouragement to get out and about where they make new ties and build relationships. This is where the Home Teams come in. When I match a neighbor with a team, I find out what activities they might like to do with their team, such as fishing, going for walks in the park, hiking, movies, attending church, learning how to cook, or going out to eat. These are just a few examples of how Home Teams have supported their neighbors in reintegrating back into society and the community.
