Homelessness: Learning in Action
Students will engage the issue of homelessness and the role faith communities play in addressing it through Drew University’s Neighbors-in-Need Project and its partner, Family Promise. Through both praxis and reflection, grapple with present-day challenges to end homelessness in Morris County and in select U.S. cities within the Family Promise network. Students will work in teams to assist either with the implementation of a public engagement campaign in Morris County or the training of Family Promise affiliate providers virtually in select localities across the U.S. By working on these project teams, students will be able to intervene on homelessness using a range of strategies and tactics.

About Community-Based Learning Courses
CBL classes foster the ability to connect academic learning with action in the world by working with offcampus community organizations. They seek to benefit their partner organizations and our shared community by addressing a need or strengthening a capacity that serves the common good. In a CBL course, you apply what you learn to real-world problems, providing a “mini-internship” that gives you the opportunity for career exploration, experience working in diverse communities, and the chance to help build your professional network. All CBL classes have been approved as Immersive Experiences.
