Community Outreach Services
At Roni LifeWorks in Seattle, Washington, our mission is to provide trauma informed care training (using a cultural lens) and supportive outreach services that strengthens community, resulting in well-informed communities. We offer mobile training, community outreach, workshop facilitation for youth and adults, and consulting services to residential and nonresidential human services programs.
Trauma Informed Care (using a cultural lens) is an approach, based on knowledge of the impact of trauma, aimed at ensuring environments and services are welcoming and engaging for communities, clients, staff, and employees. This approach acknowledges, respects, and integrates clients' and families' cultural values, beliefs, and practices.
We offer outreach supportive services to end homelessness.
Our services are intended for audiences of all backgrounds but designed to shine a light on the lived experiences of marginalized groups. We address the topics and challenges facing Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) that are too often missing from mainstream training and supportive outreach services.
Please review our community outreach and training programs below:
Our diverse Outreach Team comprising of a staff member, volunteers, and mentoring peers reach out to homeless youth in our community Monday through Friday. The team knows what underpass to visit and what abandoned building to approach. They offer critical safety needs by distributing food, hygiene kits, blankets, and clothing. The goal is to build trust with these young people. We want them to know we are there for them when they decide to leave the streets. Referrals to available services, medical care, and hotlines are also distributed.
Aside from these resources and services, Roni provides a caring community who values all homeless and at-risk youth. Our mentors and volunteers establish non-threatening relationships with youth and provide them with the love and support of family, helping guide them to independence, education, and self-sufficiency.
Roni’s Mobile Outreach Team travels throughout Seattle to common gathering areas for those who are homeless and provides on-the-spot assistance, assessments, intervention, and referrals. Armed with food, water, clothing, and blankets, they offer an important lifeline to people who are living on the street. Once connected, we help our clients obtain permanent housing, move into their new home, and qualify for benefits and other supportive resources that they need to stabilize their lives and successfully exit homelessness.
We use the "Client Choice Model for Pantry Shopping"
Here, at Roni LifeWorks Pioneer Square location, one of our programs is a mini food pantry where we serve the community by distributing food and basic household needs to families in need. We also have a Welcome Home program where we go to the "no longer houseless" client's homes to deliver food, furniture, and household items.
We provide COVID cultural prevention and vaccination informational/training/outreach resources weekly!
