Community Engagement

Are you looking for an outlet to engage, learn more, and find out how you can advocate to end homelessness? Want to request a speaker to educate your workplace, school or community group?

Agate Housing and Services hosts active, engaging community education sessions led by homeless advocates and Community Educators who have first-hand experience with homelessness. This program is called “A Day in the Life.” The purpose of A Day in the Life is to benefit community educators in their healing, growth, and self-expression. It’s also to help platform important experiences and perspectives as we motivate the public to learn, engage and advocate to end homelessness in their respective communities.  Learn more about “A Day in the Life”.

covid-19 update

In addition to our in-person programming, we now offer comprehensive virtual sessions and have reached thousands of participants — including healthcare professionals, students, non-profit boards of directors, interested community members, and more– since opening this option to the public in 2020. You can read more about how this program adjusted here: A Day in the Life Adapts.
