Voices of Homelessness Speakers Bureau
The Rhode Island Coalition for the Homeless Voices of Homelessness Speakers Bureau is a group of homeless and formerly homeless individuals that speak to students, religious and professional groups, and others about issues faced by our homeless neighbors everyday.
Our Mission: "We will change the beliefs about homelessness. We will break stereotypes and misconceptions. We will educate the general public to gain support. We will put a face to the individuals suffering, and we will speak the TRUTH to END HOMELESSNESS in Rhode Island!."
Members of the Voices of Homelessness Speakers Bureau aim to
- Be a voice for compassion and change
- Advocate for issues affecting their lives
- Dispel stereotypes, educate people and increase awareness about homelessness through their stories
