More Than a Meal or a Mat: Addressing Homelessness in a Holistic Way
Featuring Ash Uss ‘17

Wednesday, December 8, 2021 :: 12:00 noon

Originally from Amityville, New York, Ash began working in homelessness as an Emmanuel student. As an undergraduate, Ash participated in the Alternative Spring Break Program to Phoenix. She travelled to Phoenix during all four of her spring breaks to work with people experiencing homelessness. She then returned to Phoenix after graduating in 2017 and completed a year of service with Andre House of Hospitality, a homeless services center in downtown Phoenix. She then worked as a community advocate for additional shelter beds and was the principal investigator on a research study with 100 unsheltered individuals in downtown Phoenix. Ash is passionate about disrupting structural, institutional and cultural practices which criminalize homelessness and poverty. She also participates in a variety of regional efforts to end homelessness through the Arizona State Mental Health, Housing and Homelessness Workgroup and the City of Phoenix’s Strategies to Address Homelessness Task Force.

As someone who once benefited from St. Vincent de Paul’s services, Ash has a unique ability to relate to many of the individuals she works with. In 2021 she started her own consulting business called From the Ground Up. She is excited to leverage the depth of her community relationships to collaborate with individuals and organizations to propose, design and implement compassionate responses to homelessness from the ground up.

Preregistration is required and a zoom link will be sent 12/7. This event is complimentary.

Advent is upon us and we sing, "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" Campus Ministry invites you to take time out to pause in this Advent Season with Reflect Emmanuel: Advent Meditations on Our God with Us.

Each week a reflection will be shared from members of our college community.

Week Two: Reflection by Peter Welch, Campus Ministry
 
"A voice of one crying out in the desert: Prepare the way of the Lord"
 
I absolutely love the translation from the Message of John's Gospel, which unfortunately does not make its way into our Advent traditions: "The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood."
God here, with us, quite literally moving into the neighborhood, on our block, in Bethlehem, in Fenway, in our res halls.  God becoming our human neighbor, and how do we prepare as Isaiah and Luke call us to?
God, putting on the same skin that many of struggle with each day, falling and scraping his knees, crying to his parents, arguing with people, laughing with people, crying with his friends.  How can we prepare for this God with us?  That looks different than us? That lives next to us?
 
This week's Gospel reading quotes the prophet Isaiah, "A voice of one crying out in the desert: Prepare the way of the Lord."
What a hopeful phrase! Prepare for a Lord that constantly upsets our expectations.  A Lord that was born a refugee and *spoiler alert* died a condemned criminal. This is our neighbor, our God with us.
 
Amid that hope, what are we to make of this neighborhood today?  Filled with many sick, with vast political division, and torn apart with the sin of racism, evidenced nationally with the trial of the killers of Ahmaud Arbery.  Isaiah calls us to "make straight thy path" to prepare for a Lord born in the stable and dwelling in the neighborhoods of and inviting in the most marginalized. Yet, how do we bid in this Lord in with fervor anew this Advent more than ever? Make straight thy paths indeed, so we can place ourselves in the neighborhoods that Christ will and does move into.
 
So, how ought we prepare? With hope. A voice of one (or maybe many) crying out in the desert: prepare the way of the Lord. And so we do.
Week One: Reflection by Conor Bellone, Class of 2024

We begin the Advent season with something that is hard, especially in these times, to get a grip on: hope. The readings from this week remind us that hope is not a platitude, but a personal strength that God gives us. It is a faith that He is with us no matter what this season, and every season, brings. Jesus does not promise that we will have no problems, quite the opposite, but He does assure us that He is with us in all “the anxieties of daily life.” So, with all the stress of this season let us take Saint Paul’s advice to “strengthen our hearts” in this hope. God walks with us through all the anxieties and all the darkness we go through, reminding us that a bright Nativity is just around the corner.

Dear Members of the Emmanuel College Community,

When St. Julie Billiart founded the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in 1804, she placed education at the center of her congregation’sglobal apostolic mission. She believed passionately that education has the power to liberate minds, open doors of opportunity, and prepare young people to serve as agents of progress, justice and peace. For these reasons, she said, education is nothing less than “the greatest work on earth.”

Over my more than four decades as president of Emmanuel College, I have experienced an ever-renewing appreciation for St. Julie’s words. To see the faces of our students when they arrive, and then follow them as they develop into people of commitment, conscience and compassion – that is a joy that moves me in my inmost heart.

It is the privilege of my life to collaborate with countless faculty, administrators, staff, students, alumni, peers and friends to advance the vibrancy of Emmanuel’s Catholic educational mission. Our successes are evident on campus in the form of new state-of-the-art buildings, a faculty that has grown in number and distinction, innovative academic programs, expanded student-faculty research opportunities, and a remarkably welcoming and spirited community. 

Yet our most vital impact can be seen in the lives of our graduates, women and men who here forged pathways to futures once limited to their dreams. Today they are providing ethical and effective leadership in organizations and communities throughout the country.

Now, as we emerge from the pandemic, I believe it is time for new leadership to build on the momentum of these past decades, and to move Emmanuel forward in its second century. Consequently, after prayerful reflection, and with the blessing of the Board of Trustees, I have made the decision to conclude my presidency in a year’s time. 

As members of the Board confer on next steps, I remain focused on our key priorities in the year ahead. A critical imperative is to continue providing a superb liberal arts and sciences educational experience while sustaining tuition affordability. To maintain this balance – more challenging than ever in the time of COVID – we will keep working to evolve our academic offerings to match the demands of the career marketplace, while maximizing contributions to our second century fundraising campaign.

Further, we will communicate the value and distinctiveness of an Emmanuel education to ever-widening circles of prospective students and their families. I myself look forward to proclaiming the great story of Emmanuel College this year and after I leave office – indeed for all my days.

When I was inaugurated President of Emmanuel in 1979, I did not know where that path would lead. I did know that, as a Sister of Notre Dame de Namur, I was part of a larger mission to make known God’s goodness and to educate young people for life. That dual commitment captured my whole being then, and it continues today. I am so grateful to be doing what I love, and I know that, now as ever, the future is in our name – Emmanuel, our God with us.

Sister Janet Eisner, SNDdeN
President
