Jeff from V.O.I.C.E.S. visited my Intro to Social Work class this week along with others. He spoke about being the"Invisible man". He says that he is invisible because of he is an African American in a white society. In addition, he is highly educated and is a single father raising two kids. This was his second time visiting us and he is very interesting to listen to. This week he also told us about all the services he has had to use in the community to keep himself and his family alive. For any of you unfamiliar with this organization., V.O.I.C.E.S. is a community based program that focuses on educating people about poverty. They meet monthly and provide a dinner and daycare so people are motivated to attend. For more information on this organization click here.
