What is orientation?
New orientees for the EarthLinks Workshop program meet over a three week period (typically a Friday and a Monday), then attend one regular workshop during the third week. To be invited to join orientation, you must be 18 years of age or older, be currently experiencing homelessness, or have experienced homelessness it in the recent past. If you are earning an income from any source, it needs to be less than $12,490 a year according to the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
Orientation is a three- step process which will be described below:
To obtain an invitation to orientation you must call EarthLinks at 303-389-0085 anytime after 9am on designated our call-in date and SPEAK TO A PERSON (do not leave a voice mail, so keep calling back until you talk to someone on the phone). If you do not have a phone, you may come to EarthLinks at our location (2746 W. 13th Avenue Denver, CO 80204) after 9am to sign up for orientation in person.
You will receive a follow-up call later in the week letting you know if you are invited to join the first orientation meeting later that week on a Friday from 9:30am – 11:30 am. You will be provided a breakfast on that day.
You will then be invited to return for a second orientation day that following Monday to get familiarized with the community and products. After completion of these orientation days, you will then be assigned a workshop day for the following week, depending on your schedule.
What is orientation like?
"A lot of times when you are homeless, there is this feeling is that you have no worth, you have nothing to contribute. Society acts as if homeless people just appeared out of nowhere, but most of them have been around for quite a number of decades doing a lot of work and either because of illness, disability, or getting laid off, it's very hard to get a job that pays enough to live on. You begin to feel as though you've been kicked to the curb. Coming to EarthLinks and doing something productive and interesting makes people feel better about themselves, I know it helped me a lot when I needed it."
Persons 18 years or older who are currently experiencing homelessness, have been homeless, and who are economically poor.
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 9:30am-11:30am.
Please call (303) 389-0085 or come to our location at 2746 W. 13th Avenue Denver, CO 80204 to ask for instructions.
The size of orientation is based on the available space in the program, and we will not hold orientation if there is not enough space in the program to accommodate new people. Space in orientation is on a first come/first served basis, please call us with any questions that you have.
