Programs and Services
Advocacy Services
Advocates build relationships with
homeless families and connect them
to resources for housing, medical,
financial, and legal assistance and other
community resources needed to return
to self-sufficiency. They meet with
guests during orientation and in follow
up meetings to help guests track their
progress toward self-sufficiency.
Dream it, Design it, Do it (D3)
D3 encourages teens to design
project-based enrichment activities
that incorporate technology, foster
leadership and critical-thinking skills
and engage their community. PSP’s
approach to youth development is
supported by our partnership with The
Pearson Foundation’s New Learning
Institute which developed the D3
model. D3 increases the likelihood that
students will understand the goals of an
activity, learn new educational concepts
and recognize how those concepts are
relevant to their future success.

People Serving People operates a
licensed weekday preschool serving
infants, toddlers and preschool children

employment staff meets individually
