The Cost of Poverty Experience (COPE) is an interactive event that offers a glimpse into the lives of low-income individuals and families living in the community.
COPE offers a snapshot of the obstacles that are faced, the decisions that are made, and the consequences that impact families every day. It also reveals how the policies and systems within our community can help or hinder the progress of these families. Sign up here.

Family Advocate Workshop
A family experiencing housing instability or episodic homelessness has to accomplish a lot to become more stable. The Family Advocate guides a family to accomplish goals and coaches the family on the road to self-sufficiency. Experience with counseling, social work, or life coaching is extremely valuable. Ability to maintain boundaries is essential. Email Angela.Davies@crncfl.org for more information.
“ Families are at the core of the work we do. Each family has a unique story that adds to the fabric of the community. Each story needs to be shared and influence how we help others.”
