HOMELESS CRISIS ALLEVIATION
Second Wind's homeless crisis alleviation team has been providing outreach in Ithaca's encampments for 10+ years, meeting people where they are at and building relationships based on trust, accountability and unconditional love.
We collect and distribute items that our unhoused neighbors need to survive. This includes food, clothing, toiletries, transportation, ways to stay warm, and our most basic human need - human connection with people who care.
MEETING BASIC NEEDS
The homeless crisis alleviation team is 100% volunteer driven. However, this team is responsible for connecting our unhoused neighbors to services and even to homes, through our relational approach that values loving all of our neighbors.
