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.

I am a current client of Solutions for Change and I have to say I am truly grateful! I am a single mother of 4 children, I work 35 hours a week and also take 14 college units. I am in undergraduate school with plans to eventually obtain a Master's Degree in Healthcare Administration. Daycare is an enormous cost to me right now and if it weren't for Solutions for Change providing affordable apartment rent to my family, I wouldn't be able to make ends meet. Thanks SFC!

As my life as a wife came to an end, my life as a mother and provider did not. Solutions for Change was there to help me get on my feet as a single mother. They connected me to valuable resources and I learned a lot about myself in the process. Humility, patience, confidence and above all love. Thank you to Solutions and all volunteers who have helped me and my children.

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.

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 .
