Help me, Cristina De Jesus, raise money to study abroad in Ireland this summer to learn about solutions to homelessness.

I have always had a heart for helping others. When I was a senior in High School I was driving around downtown when I passed a man who was living under an over-pass on the highway. This was not my first time seeing a homeless person but for some reason when I drove my heart broke for this man I began to cry. After that day I knew I wanted to help people in need.

This Study Abroad Ireland will be an intensive six week (two weeks on-site in Ireland), three credit course examining the Social Policies, Planning and Practices in the U.S. and Ireland with a special study focus on solutions to homelessness. The interdisciplinary nature of the program will include, behavioral healthcare, housing, social work, primary healthcare, criminal justice and sociology. Two of the leading experts on homelessness from the U.S. and Ireland/Europe will be collaborating faculty, along with field vists to successful community-based programs in a successful Housing First program in Dublin.

 I am majoring in Relational Communication and I would love to work with non-profit organizations when I graduate. I am interning at ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital this semester to gain experience in the field. By going on this trip I hope to learn more about the solutions to homelessness so that I can be better equipped to help others.
