Community Care Advocate Network
The Community Care Advocate Network is needed to engage Tri-Valley member churches with assisting CityServe in caring for the needs of people struggling in our midst.
CityServe and local churches are the ONLY source of funding rapid response for families and individuals (mainly single mothers with children) living on the edge of impending homelessness in Pleasanton, Livermore and Dublin.
The growing caseload that CityServe is involved with must be shared with committed churches in the Tri-Valley. “One touch” in times of crisis is not enough for an individual experiencing a season of hardship and wanting to make appropriate changes to a better life.
We are looking for a few good Advocates who fit the following description:
A person who is:
- Willing to pray and be in tune with the leading of the Holy Spirit
- An attentive listener, kind hearted and genuinely concerned for the well being of another
- Able to set appropriated personal boundaries
- Able to ask difficult questions and require accountability
- Able to ask for help and direction whenever needed. Understands their efforts are still valuable and necessary, even though they may not have “all the answers.” They are not there to “fix” the person or magically solve all their problems
- Willing to invite the client to church and meet them there
- Will be committed to meeting with a client at least twice per month, for at least two months
- Able to attend training sessions – concepts from Stephens Ministry & Partners for change and reviewed/presented by licensed therapist
- Able to meet with one or two clients per year
- Willing to stay in communication and give updates to CityServe leadership
