I came into solutions for change so lost so broken but so willing to change. Solutions for change is a partnership guiding family's to success by getting to the core issue of a family's homelessness and giving us the tools we need to provide a safe environment for our family's. I never thought I would be where im at now and im beyond blessed, my family has a safe place we call home and my children don't have to worry about where were sleeping next or live in a chaotic home were drugs and domestic violence was a constant. I now get to watch others go through the change that my family and I went through, I get to help guide others to success. I highly recommend getting involved with SFC in some way .

Im a great ful mother of 3. This program gave me the tools and guided me to succed in this thing we call life. I was so broken before coming into solutions for change, i had followed my moms footprints and stayed in a toxic relationship because thats what i knew was chaos from early childhood, drugs and dv. Coming into here i learned a new way of life, i found people who cared about me and my family and wanted to help me brake my familys cycle. Im now a positive part of our community. I went through the change this program offers and now im greatful to say i get to help guide others through the same change, i now work with solutions for change in reaching out and helping others make the change happen.
I have been a resident at solutions for change since 2011 im now a graduate of the program and continue to work with them.

Solutions for change is a solution not a bandaid. By empowering people for the first time in their lives Solutions for Change unlocks the mystery to success, happiness and independence. Their model should be cloned across America.

Solutions for change helped me help myself and change my life for the better. I'm going on 4 years strong, a graduate and a mentor for the new families.
Chris and Tammy had a vision long ago and it works!
Words can't describe how awesome this program is, I am very grateful I found out about Solutions for change because I don't know where I'd be today if hadn't. ♡

To see the impact of an organization that started with a promise to an innocent child is beyond inspiring. When giving, it's always great to know your contribution is going to an organization that is effective. Their incredible rate of success of 93% for those who graduate the program is the reason they've become a national model. I feel so lucky to have become aware of SFC!

SFC isn't like anyone/anything else. They are unique...because it works! Through tough love, life education lessons, a lot of elbow grease, and God's grace all those who work at SFC, those going through the program, those that have graduated from the program, and all those (like me) who have had the privilege to be a part of this process have proven that it can be done! Chris and his wife's life passion is infectious and the whole community has joined in on their vision--to solve family homelessness, permanently!

Solutions for Change solves homelessness for many families by giving a hand UP! As a Girl Scout leader, my troop served meals and made welcome bags for the homeless children as part of their Silver Award. They filled the bags, including stuffed animals that were a BIG hit! This experience was eye-opening for the girls, and I couldn't have been more proud of their efforts. I spoke to some of the residents, and their stories were uplifting. KUDOS to Solutions for Change for making a huge difference for so many children and their parents!

I cannot put in to words what Solutions for Change has done for me and my family. I was a hopeless, homeless mother of two wonderful girls that deserved a better life than they were receiving. I had a drug problem and my life had spiraled out of control to the point that I felt there was no way out and then I found the solution at Solutions! They didn't provide a hand out they provided help up out of homelessness and addiction. I have been clean for over 3 years and my children have never been happier. My 12 yr old has a 3.93 grade point average and I have a stable and solid relationship with both my girls. This program works! I have seen countless families SOLVE their family homelessness so please go by the campus and take a tour of the facility and experience the miracles they provide for the children.
