Homeless Families: Housing Families, Inc., Spring 2011

Maria Teresa Dávila

This semester-long course seeks to enter into and sustain a mutual relationship of learning and care with Housing Families, Inc., an organization that provides services and housing to effectively transition homeless families into permanent housing. Since Housing Families is a local organization, this border-crossing experience spans an entire semester. Possibilities for interaction would include volunteering with the children’s program, teaching different skills that promote stability (for example: job training, budgeting and money management, healthy eating and body consciousness), taking a course - at one of their sites - with Housing Families clients on a particular topic (for example: philosophy, world religions, creative writing and spirituality). Prerequisite: ETHI 601 or 602. Limit: 10.

For more information and applications, see the Border-Crossing Immersion Handbook.
Application Deadline: November 12, 2010
Cost: $250.00
