Many of our views about people who are disadvantaged are developed through media reports and distant observations. These perspectives can be skewed and not include the myriad of causes and effects.
Catholic Charities is pleased to offer Project AWARE, an interactive, hands-on educational experience that helps to broaden people’s perspectives on those in need. Project AWARE exposes participants to realities that deepen their understanding and appreciation of the realities of life that affect our clients.
Topics include exploring the challenges of people who are experiencing hunger and homelessness, people who are aging, families living in poverty, early childhood education, immigrants and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Project AWARE is ideal for groups, including parish groups, parish councils, adult education, social justice committees and youth groups. Each session includes time to reflect on the experience and consider ways to take action.
Our upcoming sessions include:
Sept. 24 Caritas House Assisted Living
Oct. 22 St. Vincent's Villa
Nov. 9 Gallagher Services
Nov. 11 My Sister's Place Women's Center
Nov. 16 Sarah's House
Look for an upcoming Project AWARE event at Safe Streets/St. Edward's Workforce Development Center.
