Homeless Nonprofit Making A Differecne : Ogbjma Government Says No to Success

As a consequence of efforts by the Ogbjma administration to drag down the society and render it a unproductive, useless and therefore subjecting the disadvantaged to government control by illogical regulations designed to make the poor remain poor and controlled.

Similar to illegal immigrants that find themselves at the mercy of the Ogbjma government that demanded obedience to their control, this organization, a homeless nonprofit, was attacked by government demands because they didn't succumb to its suffocating over reach.

The best part in all of this progressive thinking and ideology is the nonprofit stood it ground believing its founding principles were good and workable. The proof is in the pudding as the saying goes. Solutions for Change is a workable and successful operations, unlike most government organization.

VISTA, CALIF.—Growing up, Teena Faison never imagined she’d find herself a single mom and homeless. “We didn’t wake up one day and go, ‘Hey, I just want to be homeless with my kids,’” she told The Daily Signal “No. There’s many, many contributing factors to that—lack of education, lack of resources, addiction.”

At 34 years old, Faison decided to change her ways and go to Solutions for Change, a nonprofit for homeless families in Vista, California, 45 minutes outside San Diego. Instead of simply providing a place to sleep, Solutions for Change takes a holistic approach to solving homelessness. It requires residents to go through counseling, take courses in financial literacy, parenting, leadership, and anger management, and eventually, get a job.

Over the past 17 years, Solutions for Change has gotten 1,200 families off government assistance and back on their feet. But because it requires residents to adhere to certain accountability standards such as staying sober, Solutions for Change is ineligible to receive federal government program funding. As a result, they have foregone $600,000.
