Counseling Services at The Foundation Dinners
There are as many different reasons for being homeless as there are clients. Some of the common themes are: inter-personal problems, a history of drug and alcohol abuse, a felony record or a loss of employment. Most problems are multi-dimensional, but often the underlying root cause is spiritual.
Because we are entirely supported by contributions from individuals like you, churches, foundations and businesses we are accountable to be good stewards of our funds. In order to do this, we collect data from each client who joins us for a meal. The interview process allows us to get a quick understanding of each individual’s unique problems while assessing their sincerity and determining their real need.
We connect clients with appropriate partners to help them find medical care, legal assistance, clothing, housing, and of course, 3 meals a day. For those who are not disabled and desire to work, we help them with targeted job searches.
One recent success is a family of four who began taking meals at The Foundation. After only 2 weeks, Mom & Dad and their two adult children are all working and the family is in the process of securing their own housing. These successes are the rewards of serving the homeless.
We encourage you to join with us in reaching out and enjoying the rewards of assisting the homeless in our community.
