This program is very simple in scope but very important in the initial process of trying to help someone. Each day we go downtown either in the morning or at lunch time and provide a bag lunch for the homeless. This bag lunch will either have a breakfast sandwich or lunch sandwich, crackers, granola bar or danish. We are also able to provide a cup of hot coffee with each meal as well. By doing this each day we solve a basic need of food that all of us have but some of us have difficulty in providing.
We will also provide a pick up and provide essentials to men and women coming out of prison. We will be picking up recently released inmates and make sure they have the following upon release:
2) Food Stamps
By providing these basic needs upon release from prison, a former inmate has some of the essentials they need to reincorporate themselves back into society. The next steps will be to find a job and shelter. Those are bigger problems that need solving.
For us to provide help, we must first gain trust to those in need. If the end game of this program was simply to provide food for the individual in need then the answer to this question would be yes, we are just enabling. But that is not our end game.
Our end game is to really provide a solution to the problems these people are having and to do that, we need to know who they are, gain their trust and let them understand that we really do care and we really do want to help. By doing this, our chance of success in getting these people off the streets is greatly increased. So no, we are not enabling, we are simply beginning the process of help that will hopefully last a lifetime!
We want this program to become extinct! What does this mean? This means that we want to be able to get the people in need off the streets and no longer in need of this service. Will this program itself become extinct? Probably not because there will always be people in need of food.
For those people we want to eventually have a mobile “Roach Coach” unit that can set up daily in a different location and provide free sandwiches and beverages to those in need. But this program can become extinct for those people we are able to help and transition off the streets and into a productive way of life.
We are a 501c3 Ministry
