Would you recommend Real Change Homeless Empowerment Project?
I have been helping at Real Change regularly for the past 4 years. I feel valued and part of the family. I have learned so much about homelessness and it causes. I have learned about sevices for the homeless. I have met homeless people working hard to help themselves. I have watch the Real Change newspaper grow and become meaningful in our community. The circulation is now over 60,000/month. I have seen homeless folks find homes, improve their lives and/or train for a more traditional marketing job. Real Change cares about its vendors and its staff and its volunteers.
Volunteers who wish to make a difference can become part of a movement to humanize the homeless, find shelter, help feed and clothe them. You also learn a lot about the causes of homelessness and come home after each gig knowing full well, "there but for fortune go I."
