Take the Steps to End
Poverty & Homelessness with us.
DO YOU SEE THEM?
...on our nation's highways, byways, and neighboring streets? Our nation's 37.9 million poverty stricken and homeless Americans, of which over 11 million are helpless children, and 1.5 million are our country's heroes, our veterans. Every one of us has at some point passed by someone who is living in poverty or is homeless, without lending a hand...
SO WHY DO WE IGNORE THEM?
Because the problem is so overwhelming and complicated, most feel lending a hand won't help solve the issue.
In fact most feel it's further enabling the people living in poverty and are homeless
because giving money just lends to their addiction and poverty...and guess what? They are partially
Our 10 Step Plan to End Poverty & Homelessness
FIRST - UNDERSTAND AND SHARE THE PLAN
A plan that is based upon the simplistic philosophy of an ancient Chinese proverb that says: "Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. But teach a man to fish, and he (and his family), eat for a lifetime." Poverty and homelessness will not end if we continue to enable our nation's most vulnerable by giving them money, food, and shelter. But teach them how to be productive where they can earn money, buy food and shelter... and they will "eat for a lifetime."
TAKE ACTION: Share this philosophy with others when discussing the issues and challenges our poverty stricken citizens face, and assist or donate to charitable organizations like Choose Charities that embrace this philosophy. Helping our most vulnerable citizens to help themselves...is the only way out of poverty and homelessness in America.
SECOND - A CHANGE OF HEART
There needs to be a nationwide collective change of HEART, MIND, and SOUL with a national PRIORITIES ADJUSTMENT if we are ever to eradicate poverty and homelessness. To be clear, poverty and homelessness are not money problems. Think about it for a minute. We as a nation spend hundreds of billions of dollars on inner and outer space, research, development, cures on various diseases, our military....yet we haven't coordinated our collective efforts , and billions, to end poverty and homelessness in America. WHY? With a collective, nationwide change of HEART, MIND, SOUL, and PRIORITIES America can do anything...even eradicate poverty for the 37.9 million Americans who deserve a chance to live in peace with dignity.
TAKE ACTION: Open your hearts, minds, and souls to the priorities in life that are most important, by helping those truly in need. Do not ignore that quiet voice within...if we change our priorities, we can end poverty and homelessness in America once and for all. Get involved, volunteer, donate.
THIRD - CREATE SAFE HAVENS
Choose Charities Corp is dedicated to providing separate, specialized facilities to serve our nation's homeless citizens and veterans. The Citizens Quarters will support poverty-stricken and homeless citizens, while The VETS Quarters will cater to our veterans, recognizing the unique experiences they bring Our long-term vision for each facility involves residents actively participating in their operation and management, guided by local professionals. Our mission extends to creating and managing facilities where the 37.9 million poverty-stricken and homeless Americans can access essential financial, medical, psychological, occupational, and life resources. These homes are overseen by dedicated professionals, committed to a coordinated, sustainable process that offers dignity, love, and understanding to all who share our vision of ending poverty and homelessness in America.
TAKE ACTION: "But teach a man to fish and he (and his family), eat for a lifetime." Our safe havens are where it all begins, and eventually comes together. But we can't do it without you! Get involved by volunteering, and donating. Be a volunteer at one of our safe havens. Imagine, if our seven thousand plus connections on LinkedIn donated just $10.00 per month, per year? That's over $840,000 dollars we could put toward these all import facilities!
FOURTH - SUPPORT THE MISSION. BE THE MISSION
Our vision, is to provide safe havens in the areas of our country that are most effected by poverty, and homelessness. Local, area, regional, and national support professionals will be needed to create a cohesive, checks and balance system where our safe haven staff and professionals can find the support, and assistance necessary to help guide, and counsel our nations poverty stricken and most vulnerable citizens. All the staff and professionals working at our safe havens will be overseen, guided, and supported by our Choose Charities’ Board Members through their guidance via established bylaws, rules, checks and balances created for the sole purpose of continuity, and cohesion in the sustainable management , and operation of our safe havens.
TAKE ACTION: It's all in the Mission! Looking for a challenge in your life that'll reward you in more ways than you ever thought possible? Join our team of local, area, regional, and national support professionals in the areas of finance, medicine, and psychology, along with occupational, and life living resource experts who will be the "teaching core" needed to create a cohesive, coordinated, sustainable operational system. Join us!
FIFTH - OVERCOME THE COST
The President’s Budget request to congress for funding HUD (Department of Housing and Urban Development), the governmental agency responsible for addressing the needs of poverty stricken and homeless Americans, in 2022 was $68.7 billion dollars, in 2023 was $71.9 billion dollars, and in 2024 the request is $73.3 billion dollars. Given the herculean task at stack of ending poverty and homelessness in America, $68.7 to $73.3 billion dollars is a good start… In a recent article published on LinkedIn dated March 21, 2023, the amount of $175 billion dollars was mentioned as just about enough to lift everyone out of poverty in America. Which is approximately the amount of taxes owed by the top 1% of income earners in the US, and the suggestion was made if the top 1% of income earners would just pay the taxes owed we could potentially end poverty in America. Hence, reaffirming the idea that poverty and homelessness in America is not a money problem, it’s a HEART, MIND, and SOUL issue coupled with a PRIORITIES ADJUSTMENT from all Americans far and wide.
TAKE ACTION: The cost is HUGE! But the cost of doing nothing is even HUGER! This effort will require assistance from individuals, business owners, and large corporations. Consider for a moment if the 22 million millionaires in the US donated just $100.00 per month, per year that'd be $26.4 billion dollars we'd raise annually, and poverty and homelessness as we know it, would be on its way to being a thing of the past. Change your HEART, MIND, and SOUL...and your PRIORITIES will follow.
