The Homecoming Program empowers veterans who have experienced homelessness to create a new path toward a more successful future. Homecoming assists veterans in developing essential life skills and aids in the process of recovery from the trauma and crisis of homelessness through sharing of life stories and the establishment of a supportive community. The program will serve 7-10 Veterans per semester. During the 14-week, 28-session program, participants will become part of a family-like community, created through an environment based on trust, support and respect. They will attend inspirational workshops that will help them set goals, and develop the skills for success. They will have the support of their peers, as well as a mentor who will journey with them throughout the program. They will meet and connect with people and organizations that can help them move further along their chosen path and take hold of their future.
NOTE: Our normal LSEP program is currently on hiatus until such time as it is deemed safe for us to resume. For the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters, our focus will be on supporting our LSEP alumni with teleconference group sessions, referrals to resources, and emotional care as they navigate the many layers of this health and economic crisis. If you are a program alumnus in need of assistance, please contact Rachel Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
