"We Have Room" is a homeless initiative to help combat the perils of homelessness males and females in the Houston and surrounding areas amongst our youth aging out of foster care, parenting youth, youth who need re-entry assistance and emergency life transitions.
Look at the levels and descriptions of what homelessness may look like in our youth. Homelessness can be disaggregated into three levels:
Project We Have Room's goal is to support transitional youth age ranging from 17-22 finding themselves in financial hardships, unemployed, and seeking reliable resources that will prepare them for the next phase of life. We Have Room will provide daily activities that will give clients the opportunity to learn financial literacy, mentorship, explore their interest to allow youth to discover a skill or craft that will be lucrative for gainful employment. Clients will learn job preparation with interview skills, given hands-on opportunities to learn technical skills, craft or service skills. Clients will visit businesses, speak to owners for potential employment. Each client while in the individualized innovative programming designed specifically to meet their needs will be on their own personal timeline specifically for them ranging from 12 months to 6 years with mentorship and follow-up upon exiting the programs. Programming will also include mental wellness activities, counseling, education and entrepreneurship skills and opportunities.
G.O.O.D Girlz Mentoring teaches girls how Graciously Overcome Obstacles Daily through weekly group sessions focusing on holistic programming teaching lessons on physical, emotional, physical, financial and metaphysical awareness activities.
The Amadi Boys Club (ABC Club) Mentoring teaches boys tools necessary in the development of good character, leadership and behavior appropriate to become a productive citizen. The program in its simplicity teaches the value in learning to be a gentleman through affirmations and hands on community outreach activities from A to Z.
