Unitarian Universalists explore finding home by giving home

TWIN FALLS — Wyatt Schroeder will speak at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Ave. W., Twin Falls, near the old hospital.

Schroeder is the executive director of Charitable Assistance to Communities’ Homeless, an organization in the Boise area working to end homelessness for families with stable housing, financial independence and resilience. He is responsible for the strategic management, fund development, storytelling and the program success of CATCH.

Schroeder’s presentation will focus on his work in ending homelessness as an exploration of the spiritual journey towards a home in all its complexities.

Unitarian Universalism honors the differing paths individuals travel. Congregations are places where people celebrate, support and challenge one another as they continue on their spiritual journeys. Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote: the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.

Newcomers of all religious paths, or none at all, are always welcome. Child care is available. The center is handicapped-accessible. Parking is at the rear of the building.
