What a great organization here is North County San Diego. The leadership seems to care so much about their jobs and the cause they are working to help solve.

Just heard all about Solutions for Change on the radio, and former Pastor Chico was our pastor, so I have an interest in this organization. What I heard was so encouraging... this organization just not give hand outs like so many do, buy they teach each person to have confidence, dignity, and to learn how to support themselves through employment, life skills, etc. They "teach" a person to fish rather than just "give" a person a fish.
Wish we had more of these types of organizations throughout the county.

With the increase in homelessness and families in need it is wonderful to see an organization like Solutions for Change making a difference in so many lives. I personally know of the investment of time and caring of the volunteers and leaders in this organization and how much good they are doing throughout the community. They are not just helping get families into shelters but helping them to get back on their feet and begin to support themselves again. Thank you SFC for the great work that you are doing!

I have a family member who is part of the Solutions program. I've seen hopeless and broken people find a safe, secure place in society. Solutions offers counseling, job search, parenting, therapy and financial support allowing these individuals to rebuild their lives with a strong support system. It is not an easy program. It's a commitment that changes lives. I am forever grateful.

This program has been a God send for my son and his family. I cannot believe what a difference it has made and how grown up and responsible for the first time in there lives. The kids a thriving and their family is finally becoming independent, self reliant, drug and alcohol free and contributors to society! They will soon (1-2 years) be totally off assistance. It is the best thing to have ever happened to the 4 of them. THANK YOU SOLUTIONS!!!

I read about this organization in a newspaper article of the San Diego Union Tribune. I then attended the Grand Opening ceremony of their Solutions Farm in Vista, Ca. I saw first-hand an example of how this organization is on the leading edge in agriculture as well as in career training. I found out more information on their Face Book page, and subscribe to their newsletter. I am so proud this organization exists in my community, and I support it by donating new toys and gifts at Christmas as well as used items in good condition. Homelessness is a serious issue in our society, I applaud Solutions for Change in their comprehensive program to meet the diverse needs of their clients.

Solutions for Change is an amazing organization that has helped change the lives of many families that have found themselves in the unfortunate situation of being homeless. Their comprehensive approach doesn't deal with so much with the symptoms of homelessness, but the root causes. We are privileged to have them in our community.

I have been fortunate enough to be involved with this organization since 2007. The residents, staff, board members and volunteers have impacted me in ways I could not have anticipated. I am grateful each day that this organization is continuing to solve family homelessness with servant leadership as it's keystone. Solutions for Change is truly leading the way!
