RE-flections: FUUY Trip to City Reach

Follen Youth Participate in Homelessness Awareness/Service through Boston’s City Reach Program


On the second weekend of March 2019, 14 youth members of the Follen UU Youth (FUUY) Group, along with their Youth Program Coordinators and the Director of Religious Education, made their way to Boston to participate in the City Reach program, sponsored by Ecclesia Ministries – Common Cathedral. City Reach gives young people the opportunity to learn first hand about homelessness from people who have experienced it. It was a profoundly moving experience for all of us. We have some ideas for sharing the experience with the Follen community and helping move hearts in the direction of compassion as we live out our values as Unitarian Universalists. Watch for more in the latter part of the church year.

Many thanks to the Brown Fund for their generous contribution in subsidizing this experience.
