Homelessness is a complex situation that requires complex conversations and answers. As agents of change seeking to erase the stigma of homelessness, The Dwelling Place offers opportunities for young people and young adults to spend a week during the summer or fall/spring break participating in a Service Learning Experience.
Hosted (housed) at local partner churches, participants engage in a week of relationship-building, education, story-telling and service alongside formerly or currently homeless individuals.
Through their week of service, participants will better understand the complexity of the systems and institutions perpetuating homelessness and ways that they can continue to advocate for justice, accessible mental health care, affordable housing, and more.
Because Homelessness is not localized, many of the problems facing individuals experiencing homelessness in Winston-Salem are the same across the country. This learning opportunity has the power to mobilize national change.
