The role of the Advocate is to host an individual guest or family by getting to know them, inform them what services TC cares has to offer, show them around during the event and advocating for them to maximize the service offered according to their needs. The personal attention and care given to each guest by the advocate is what make TC Cares different than any other service event. In the end, we not only want our guest to receive needed services and resources but to walk away having tangibly experienced the love of Christ.
An advocate will care for our guests physically by helping them to find the services that they need, by eating a meal with them, by listening to their story.
If the guests are open, an advocate can also care for them spiritually by either you or someone you connect them with praying with them, sharing the trust of the Gospel, and inviting them to church.
All advocates should plan to attend one of the two training events.
