Homelessness Community Learning Experience (HCLE)
A partnership with the Salvation Army - Wake County that began in fall 2006. This extension and engagement outreach initiative, a requirement of Dr. Martin's community psychology course, helps students learn about the multiple, systematic factors that contribute to individual homelessness especially entire families who become homeless. The nurturing program helps homeless mothers residing at the shelter with their children learn additional, effective parenting strategies that focus on communication, discipline, and moral development.
