DIY Advocacy

Why call a [crazed-burnt out-overworked-underpaid- overcaffeinated-underslept] social worker when you can *do it yourself* ?

For the last several years, first at Bread & Roses and then at Family Support, I've worked here and there on developing an effective, easy to follow manual for homeless advocacy. This manual has reached the point that it is worth making available to the public... so I've posted it online!

Check it out and download it for yourself at: homelessadvocacy.wikispaces.com

What a great resource Phil, thank you! It looks like a lot of work must have gone into this.
Our City Gates director downloaded this manual and made it into a book that we will use in our ministry. We are looking forward to the interactive one you are working on.

Thanks again!
