People Helping People Help Themselves
Peacemakers Love Foundation Good Cause Sacramento, a solution to the housing and homeless recidivism rate in the Sacramento community.
We have been working with chronically homeless and disenfranchised individuals for the past 5 years and have seen our county, state agencies and resources exhausted. We are addressing the homeless situation as though all the homeless need is housing. In doing this we have taken the tax payers money, grants, and charitable givers of our community and tossed their funds to the wind by not coming out with a true comprehensive way to reduce and ultimately end homelessness in our community; that is giving them the tools needed to sustain housing and employment .
We have established a self-help community that is now doing this! Good Cause Sacramento Men’s Empowerment Process; we prepare individuals with the tools necessary and have helped many men to restore their lives, be reacquainted with their families and sustain permanent housing. This restoration process is a minimum stay of 6 months while the average resident/participant remains for up to 2 years. In the first 3 months the participant may only attend the Men’s Empowerment Process and participate in work therapy in our give back program in one of the various positions it takes to run the organization. The process also serves as the vocation and educational instruction of the program. The organization is run solely by the participants and the volunteers who have reached out to help and train them.
This process offers clean and sober safe housing; during their time the participants are required to earn a GED if they do not have a diploma and are instructed in different marketable skills. Our spiritual, vocational, educational and work oriented process instructs individuals in a way that empowers them to be self-sustainable with confidence. Beyond educational and vocational instruction, residents learn important values, and social and interpersonal skills that allow them to live successfully in the mainstream of society. We confront their past so they may move on to the future.
Since opening our doors, we have functioned solely on donations and funds generated through volunteers, community, participants and other nonprofits.
