Review for Solutions for Change, Vista, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I live in Colorado Springs area of Colorado. One of the biggest difference I noticed two years ago when I moved here from North Carolina was the amount of homeless people. Being so new, I was unaware that the legalization of marijuana here in Colorado and increased "homelessness" was so closely tied together.
After months of ministering to the homeless here, I am now very well aware that giving and giving and giving does not break the cycle....it increases co-dependency.
I am very impressed with Solutions for Change (Vista, Ca) and hopeful that their model will reach Colorado.
A lot of money is being thrown at the problem here in Colorado with no real solution in sight.
Accountability works. It has a way of weeding out those that really want a hand up from those that are just looking for a hand out. I have been troubled by homelessness for years...even before I moved to Colorado. Solutions for Change, so far, is the only program I have found that restores hope....especially to the children....breaking the cycle, which is essential to real success.
I am so thankful for Solutions for Change even though I am not a direct recipient of this ministry. Indirectly, we all suffer when homelessness is present in our world. I'm thankful for a real Solution for real Change. Let this model spread across our country.
