How to Support Empowering 4 Change in Serving the Broken and Under-Served
At Empowering 4 Change, our mission is to serve the broken, displaced, and under-served in our local community and surrounding areas. We are dedicated to providing resources and support to those who are struggling with homelessness, poverty, and other difficult life situations.
Unfortunately, homelessness is a serious problem in our area. In fact, the most recent count of homeless people in our local city of Des Moines, Iowa and Kansas City, Missouri is over 2,500. This number is heartbreaking, and it highlights the need for organizations like Empowering 4 Change to step up and provide assistance.
How Can You Help?
When it comes to supporting our mission, there are several different ways you can get involved. The most important way is to give a donation. Your donations help us provide essential food and shelter to those in need. We also use donations to fund our outreach programs, which help people find employment, housing, and access to other resources.
In addition to financial contributions, you can also help by volunteering your time and talents. We are always looking for volunteers to help with our programs and outreach efforts. This could include tutoring, mentoring, or providing other forms of support.
What to Give to Those on the Streets?
When it comes to providing assistance to those on the streets, there are several items that are helpful. Non-perishable food items like granola bars, protein bars, and canned goods are always appreciated. Hygiene items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, and soap are also useful. And of course, warm clothing like coats, hats, gloves, and blankets are essential during the colder months.
It’s also important to remember that the best way to help someone on the streets is to treat them with the same respect and kindness you would show anyone else. A simple smile or kind word can make a world of difference.
What Can Be Done to Address Homelessness?
When it comes to addressing homelessness, it’s important to remember that it’s a complex issue with no easy solutions. We need to take a holistic approach that considers both the immediate and long-term needs of those experiencing homelessness. This means providing access to housing, employment, healthcare, and other resources. It also means investing in prevention programs that help those at risk of becoming homeless and providing wraparound services for those who are already homeless.
