Lance Greene and Pat Mischler have done so much amazing work for the homeless thru their organization Straight Ahead Outreach. They have given up feeding themselves to feed the homeless. They have gone without to get warm clothes for the homeless. Lance and Pat have opened their own home to help the homeless. They do everything in their power to get these people back on track with their lives. An important part of their mission is to make others aware of this awful situation with so many homeless people. Lance and Pat are truly angels on earth helping so many homeless people!

Lance has worked with ... the real hard cases that other agencies will not handle. He truly shows the best example of Christian love to those whose brains have been altered because of drugs or heredity and who are very difficult to deal with. Lance has been faithful for several years in caring for these folks.

Lance & Straight Ahead Outreach are quiet heroes... ones who give of their time, talent & treasure in service of the community in ways most of us would never think about. Lance & his work to help those who are in need go way beyond what bigger organizations do, and he puts his whole life & heart in to it. He is passionate, compassionate & patient, and will go to great lengths to help someone in need. He poses questions to those of us in community who want to help, but don't know how, beckoning us in to give or serve.

I had an experience to work with Lance Greene from Straight Ahead Outreach (Taking Back Your Life). This experience was helping him with a client who was homeless. Mr. Greene is very dedicated in his efforts, giving and stretching his own budget in assisting his clients. I feel he works hard going after donations to assist them with monies owed and tries really hard to work with them to obtain housing and "take back their lives". I commend him on this and wish him very much success in the future.
