SUMMARY

THE FRIENDS IN ACTION MANUAL is a program design manual for transforming concern that individuals & groups have for poor & homeless families into concrete action & lasting help. This manual guides the reader through the process of developing a volunteer program that uses a team approach to work with families in need. The method set forth helps families through their present crises & provides them with friendship, advocacy, & guidance needed to promote lasting change. This manual is based on six years of experience of the staff, volunteers, & families of the FRIENDS IN ACTION (FIA) PROGRAM in Montgomery County, Maryland. One-third of the families assisted by the FIA have been homeless. Several families have achieved, through study, training & hard work, jobs with health benefits that pay a living wage. Because of the many barriers to achieving this goal, the families say that they would not have succeeded without the encouraging support of their FIA teams. Readers of this manual will learn how they can work with others to initiate a similar program. Many more such programs are urgently needed. To order: Community Ministry of Montgomery County, 114 W. Montgomery Ave., Rockville, MD 20850. Cost: $19.95. Plus $3.50 shipping & handling.Parker, Carolyn is the author of 'Friends in Action Manual A Model for Establishing a Volunteer Program to Build Caring and Supportive Relationships With Poor and Homeless Famili' with ISBN 9780963199508 and ISBN 0963199501.
