Description

Eric DeBode is the founder and Executive Director of Abundant Grace Coastside Worker. He has worked with the homeless most of his adult life, and for seven years here on the coast.

He will speak about community responses to the homeless, the variety of needs on the coast, and share stories about their two “social benefit” employment programs. Abundant Grace Coastside Worker hires people experiencing homelessness to work at Potrero Nuevo Farm where they grow food to share with needy families; and operates the Coastside Clean Team where they clean the beach and coastal trails.

These projects combine the dignity of work with meaningful social connections to help support our struggling neighbors reweave the web of relationships that can make for a happy, productive life.
