Often times when hearing about the epidemic of homelessness people take the viewpoint that homeless people are homeless for one reason or another. Whether they have a drug addiction or are just too lazy to get a job, those of us who are living comfortably can always seem to formulate a reasonable justification for this problem. Not only do we come up with answers to the problem, but we also assume that homeless people can find the desired shelter somewhere else. We as a society fail to face the realities of the situation or even recognize them for what it really is. Hope For Change want to change how society view homeless people as a whole and work with the homeless men in our community so that they can become productive members in society and live a fulfilled balance life.
No matter what I will pledge to help homeless men who are not able to help themselves the way god intended man kind to do. I will stick to what I believe and vow to change the community of Elizabeth New Jersey for the better. The fact of the matter is homeless men are here and we must eradicate the problem from the root by doing what is right by all because we are all worth fighting for. We all go through things in life whether or not we want to admit to it. However we are much more than our struggles. So the next time the topic of homelessness is brought up, I ask you, please do not jump to conclusions trying to find the simplest solution to the problem. But do consider everything I have said here and remember that its easier said then done and Hope For Change need your help.

Homeless shelters are temporary residences of desperation for homeless
people which seek to protect vulnerable populations from the often devastating effects of homelessness
while simultaneously reducing the environmental impact
on the community. They are similar to but distinguishable from various types of emergency shelters
, which are typically operated for specific circumstances and populations - fleeing natural disasters or abusive social circumstances. Extreme variants of "normal" weather create problems similar to disaster management
scenarios, and are handled with warming centers
, which typically operate for short duration during adverse weather.
Homeless shelters tend to be a "one-size-fits-all" model, but there is frequently a separate shelter system for families and for youth.
Both "generic" and the specialized shelters typically expect clients to exit in the morning and occupy themselves elsewhere during the day, returning for an evening meal and to sleep.Hope For Change seeks to Provide more than the average shelter!
