Climb Out Homelessness
Berkeley Ironworks is proud to announce a new program to help the homeless. Stephen Krank of the St. Vincent de Paul Champion Guidance Center
designed a 12 week program to help the homeless get back on track. The 'Climb Out of Homelessness' program is made up of two parts: learning to climb at Berkeley Ironworks and the Champion Guidance Center's 'Meet Your Needs Workshop'.
The group's first meeting at BIW was on September 7th, where they were given a belay safety class and tested their new-found skills on the walls. Everyone had a great time and left with a sense of accomplishment and optimism. We hope the participants are successful in their climb out of homelessness and are excited to provide this opportunity at no cost.
