Ted Talks: A Practical Way To Help The Homeless Find Work And Safety
The mayor of Albuquerque, Richard Berry made a speech that can help a lot of the major cities globally if taken into account. While walking down the road, he happened to come across a man that was holding a card board. There were words written on it and upon looking closely he learnt that the man had been asking for help finding a job. He and his staff started a citywide initiative that would see to it that most of the homeless get jobs as well as places to sleep. A lot of the persons listening to him termed his talk a frank and optimistic one.
A lot of panhandlers will attest to the fact that the money handed out to the various persons in need isn’t spent of feeding the body. On the contrary, it is usually used to quench the various additions. If you happen to be that someone that handed out that particular cash only to later discover that it wasn’t used the right way, then you might end up disappointed.
However, getting disappointed doesn’t help at all because it changes nothing. What everyone needs to focus upon is the idea of always coming up with better mechanisms to handle or matters. An indeed there are better ways of doing things.
There is great dignity in work and a lot of people confess it each passing day. The inspirational; speaker takes pride in the fact that he has one of the best jobs in the world.
Any progressive city that is advocating for change will need to work closely with a non-profit organization towards the achievement of its set goals. His city works closely with St. Martin’s Hospitality center. It is now 30 years down the line collaborating with it. Such an organization offers counseling services, food and shelter.
Agility is very important and getting a body that can assist with the paperwork ends up simplifying matters a great deal. Usually, a panhandler can be paid about nine dollars an hour. A van serves the transportation role and any interested city needs to get a really good one.
