Project Details

What we need
  • Attend a 1-hour zoom meeting to understand more about our beneficiaries and the details of the activity
  • Participate in 3.5 hours of activity, which includes gift preparation and hostel visits on 17 Dec
  • Organize and host a 5.5-hour Christmas Party for homeless users on 22 Dec
  • Volunteers who can join all sessions are preferred (we need the volunteers to at least commit to 17 and 22 Dec sessions)
Background

We discover that the friends previously homeless who live in our hostel lack of emotional and social support. They often feel lonely and helpless. Adequate emotional and social support is very important for their health and it gives them power to move forward and continue in their journey. Therefore we organize this volunteer activity to provide the social and emotional support by increasing the connection between homeless and citizens.

What we have

Our social worker would provide the information of our clients, the gift materials and party stuffs for the visits. Volunteers can enjoy the event and make their holiday more meaningful - at the same time get a better understanding of the issue.

Why this is important

Providing adequate social and emotional support allows the homeless person to better maintain their health. This allows them to take their first steps to make changes in subsequent treatment.

What we do

We work with people experiencing homelessness to help them settle in a safe home, restore their mental and physical wellbeing, build their self-esteem, increase their social capital and discover their purpose. To do this we provide direct holistic support to people experiencing homelessness and empower them to transform their lives. At the same time we build community connections to increase collective understanding of homelessness and empathy towards the people who experience it. We also address the systemic issues that cause the housing crisis and stand up with those who lack the basic human right to safe housing.
