Written Story Sharer (Consultant or part-time employee): The Written Story Sharer is the primary creator and writer of grants at La Casa Hogar. Here is our philosophy:
Grant writers have been historically awarded grants by victimizing communities of color and organization’s “clients” in the stories we tell and the ways we write. La Casa Hogar writes and wins grants from a strengths-based lens, highlighting the values, strengths and resilience of those who come to La Casa Hogar. Instead of seeking “help”, La Casa writes grants as invitations into a larger vision and mission. La Casa perceives grants and proposals as opportunities to capture our organizational and student/staff voices in writing to share and declare a different narrative—not one of deficit, but one of strength. How? Here are some examples: *Submitting reports, grants or proposals with Spanish and English mixed together; *Directly incorporating student voices and staff voices; *Orienting writing around the high value of authentically sharing voice.
