Community Recreation Programs
Dawn to Dawn has made recreational opportunities central to its outreach programing. This is an opportunity for homeless and at-risk individuals to come out to exercise, socialize and have fun. The model is one of social inclusion. Recreation outreach provides an opportunity for Grant to connect with folks in a positive manner and develop a trusting relationship where the needs of the individual can be more clearly understood and an approach to meeting challenges developed.
Dawn to Dawn believes that an important part of addressing homelessness in our community is providing homeless individuals and families with the opportunity to participate in meaningful activities. Social integration helps previously homeless individuals and families stay housed, and leads to better success in finding and keeping long-term housing. The reason is simple: when you feel like you belong to a community, you want to contribute to that community.
We offer the following programs for Dawn-to-Dawn clients, homeless individuals and the community at-large.
- Street Soccer
- Art Outreach
- Gym Socials
- Cedar Weaving
- Book Clubs
