FACILITATING LIFE SKILLS
FOSTERING FOOD FOR THOUGHT
EV Feeds First and does not push any agenda on the homeless and underserved. Understanding that basic necessities foster hope, concentration and an understanding by those we serve that we really do care, we believe in feeding first before attempting any life changing advice
Finding work, managing money, self-care, and other life skills to begin to upgrade their current circumstances to get back to a sense of normality and a new sense of gratitude for life. Starting with a model room we progress to have a home of their own to provide stability & independence.
Emotional health and assistance is at the core of establishing a new mind set and an emotional state that is filled with hope, direction and purpose. Through wisdom teaching, meditation and prayer we bring a new self to the clients we serve.
We find that providing basic needs are the first priority. If a person has an empty stomach they cannot concentrate on anything else. We provide not only weekly meals but also an Adobt-A-Block partnering with community groups to go house to house distributing donated food items.
HYGENE CARE KITS
Essential to the homeless are personal care items. Kits are packed by volunteers and partner groups. The kits are gender specific and provide needs to men and women.
From mental health to motivation and purpose, EV takes a step further than basic needs. Obviously "people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." is true. This is why we provide basic needs first. The next step is job prep, finding a home, providing purpose, allowing community and respect.
