Bonner Community Fellowship

I enjoyed doing the river stories activity. I met some of the freshman Bonners and we got to learn a bit more about each other. I also appreciated having the time to reflect on my own story and future goals.

Even though I was only there for a little bit, it was a great to join House of Hope for their intern group supervision. It was interesting to hear about the House of Hope outreach approach and I enjoyed hearing about the high points from the last week.

I thought that are meeting with Sojourner House was very insightful! Although I had researched Sojourner House for the resource guide, I still had not known about all of their programs and the resources they provided. It was great to get to know them better as well as share what we do as Home to Hope.

At our final team meeting of the semester, I was glad that we got to share our hopes for the future of H2H. We also spoke about our summer plans, the next semester, and got to say good bye to some of the team members.

I thought that we had a great launch party of the drop-in center! I'm glad that we had replies to our housing options question and those who were not current clients coming to the event. It also provided an opportunity to get to know members of the community and community organizations.

I was a recorder for outreach on Monday and I thought that we engaged with quite a few people in Kennedy Plaza and at the ice rink. I was glad that I saw someone that I hadn't in a while and found out how she was doing. I was able to work on my skills as a recorder and I continued to learn from how Tory approaches and builds relationships with those that we talk with on outreach.

We discussed our individual updates during the team meeting, but I'm most glad that we got a chance to say goodbye to Julnelle at the meeting.

I sent another email to Sojourner House to solidify our visit and how many people would be attending. We then finished the FAQ sheet, submitted it to Tory, and spent the rest of the time working on the flyers.
