Like every other human being in this world, I have a weakness, an Achilles heel, if you will. I love helping people not matter what it costs me. My uncle started a homeless outreach center, before he died, called SOAR. Since his passing my mother has taken it over and has almost brought herself to the point of homelessness because she gives everything she has to the program and to the people she helps every day. If I could earn a living doing something that I love it would be working there. It breaks my heart to see how I have so much when there are so many people who have absolutely nothing. If I could somehow hit the lottery, there is so much that I could do. Not only would SOAR be an outreach, but it could also be a shelter; unfortunately, SOAR does not have the funding to house the homeless, only transport to shelters, hospitals, job interviews, etc. SOAR has taught me so much and I would do just about anything to see it take off and be a nationwide facility. I wish there were more people who would be willing to donate just a fraction of what they have to the people who have nothing. No, I can’t make homelessness disappear. I can’t solve the problem and take everyone off the streets. But I’ll be damned if I’m not going to try. Thank you for this opportunity and God Bless.
