I was able to volunteer in the childcare center for a semester and I'm so glad I did! This program is the only one I know of that focuses on the skills necessary to truly be successful in the real world. Other programs around the county seem to just put a band aid on the problems homeless families face. By working with these families from the bottom up, Solutions for Change really is the solution! I look forward to what else they are able to accomplish throughout the county, and maybe country!

I didn't have a place to live with my 2 yr. old child and felt lost. Solutions for Change has helped and continues to help me and my child with mental health services, case management, resources and support. I greatly appreciate it!

I've had many opportunities to volunteer with our youth group feeding and caring for the families. We have always left feeling that we were the blessed ones! The leadership and structure of the organization, the love shared by staff and volunteers, and the committment made by the families members that call or have called SFC home are the successful elements that make SFC's program not just a quick fix, rather a place dedicated to providing positive, life altering solutions.

Solutions for Change is an amazing program that helps families to gain stability and recover from adversity that they have experienced. The success rate speaks for itself. Solutions doesn't give a temporary fix, it provides a permanent solution to an extremely complex issue- family homelessness.

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.

After getting custody of my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter, I found myself with no job and no place to live because I had relocated here from out of state. Solutions for Change took us in, provided a roof over our heads, food in our stomachs, enrichment classes, assistance with child care and job search. We are now secure in one of their apartments and striving for the next step in this journey. The staff has been wonderful to us and I will always be grateful for the hand up!

This organization does more than offer band-aids. To willing parents, they offer a new lease on life. They turn things around. I have been following their actions for several years and I see nothing but real quality. I have toured their farm, and met their staff. If you want more "bang for your buck", you can't go wrong supporting this organization.

Solutions for Change is an amazing program that helps so many families including my own. My wife and I had struggled for a few years to find stability in our lives not only for us but for our children. Being in Dolutions has done so much more than that. Instead of doing a band aid quick fix solution, they get down to the nitty-gritty and really help to set up a foundation for you to build a new successful life.
