A program designed to give every human a chance to change the world no matter what their story is. We believe in inclusion, mercy before judgement, and in giving humans as many chances as it takes to be healthy, productive members of society.
Peer Humanity is a program within Be Soul Good that focuses on each human. Based on the idea that we all face barriers that impact us, Peer Humanity meets people where they are. Those within the Be Soul Good team fall into our categories of Life Internship, Life Apprenticeship, Life Mentorship, and HOPE Leadership. (Helping Other People Evolve Leadership)
We believe in a balance of STABILITY (meeting your basic needs such as safety, housing, and mental health stability), HOPE (development, learning opportunities, growing), and SKILLS (work experience).
Our team partners to provide support to the team. We provide intensive case management to those at the Internship level, along with support and services to those in every category. We also believe in community, and will provide outside support or referral to those who reach out.
We want to build a team of helpers. Core values include: strengths-based and trauma informed care approaches, relationship building, autonomy of the individual, and openness.
What makes Peer Humanity different than other amazing programs is our hands on approach. Most individuals in our program know the resources but are unable to make the necessary moves to use them. The system is complex and our program walks them through each step. A third of our participants paid time is spent getting over the hurdles. A third of our participants paid time is skill building and executing projects within the program and the final third of their paid time is spent on development, education and training with the intention of building their resume, connecting them to a network of individuals in their communities.
We practice Servant Social work and are seeing positive outcomes.
Peer Humanity is fully funded by Be Soul Good while we work through the process of becoming a 501C(3). Peer Humanity is currently considered a Charitable Initiative through partnering with Open Collective Foundation, acting as the fiscal agent.
