House of Hope Youth Outreach Program

I thought that the event went great! We worked well as a team to set-up and take down everything and I was glad that so many people were encouraged to attend the event. Since I was primarily taking care of supplies, I noticed during the event what was being most requested as I was helping everyone get what they needed and I sent an email to Tory after the event about particularly requested items. However, while the event was going on, I sometimes felt overwhelmed by the amount of people who were trying to get supplies. It was hard to keep everything organized and to find what I needed when someone asked me for help. I think that there is probably an easier way to manage supplies during events and I hope that we get the chance to talk about it before the the next one.

It was great to catch-up and have a team meeting to hear all about the work that everyone has been putting in to make the fall event successful.

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.
